Rac­quet-eers over­come Ge­or­gia club team

Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORTS -

THE WEATHER was good. The three grass courts were in good con­di­tion. In spite of this, the home team at Ge­or­gia Coun­try Club, for the sec­ond year run­ning, were out­played by the vis­it­ing Rac­quet-eers from Kingston with a match score of 46-32.

The Ge­or­gia team con­sisted of Martin Hop­wood, Roy Collins, Tammy Hart, An­drew Todd, Bruce Hart, Belinda Mor­row. Tennis Cap­tain An­drew Hop­wood was markedly ab­sent as he had gone fish­ing.

The Rac­que­teers were led by Nor­man Marshall, and con­sisted of Richard Gomes, Ever­ton Mor­gan, Stephen Todd, Ste­fan Pri­est­ley, Rachel McLarty. This team had Tony Gam­brill as non-present and non-play­ing cap­tain as well as Oliver Clarke, present but non-play­ing deputy cap­tain.

Um­pire was Collin Gal­lant. Club hos­pi­tal­ity was or­gan­ised by Dimps Gal­lant, Sheona Muschett, Anne Hop­wood sup­ported by Tammy Hart.

“We had a great af­ter­noon of sport. The Ge­or­gia Club never ceases be­ing an amaz­ing lo­ca­tion for this im­por­tant tour­na­ment now be­ing played for the 13th year. Ge­or­gia did bring on this year some new and tal­ented lady play­ers but their fine con­tri­bu­tion was in­suf­fi­cient to change the re­sult. Cus­tos Paul Muschett is al­ways a most gra­cious host,” said Cap­tain Marshall. “We were not in­tim­i­dated by the guard dog that ac­com­pa­nied one of their play­ers.”
