Lloyd Trophy Tuesday 27.03.23 Imperial (Away)

Won 60-42

On our first visit to Imperial and their synthetic green another good win in a busy week for Inter-club competitions.

It’s a different surface but it has lines and weights to find and provided you just get with it should be no problem and for many Redland players that proved to be the case. Hopefully a useful practice for when we play Imperial in the league later in the season.

On Jim’s rink with Will, Trev and Andy , and using seemingly their now well established “steam roller” tactics cruised to a 26-7 win.

Editor’s Note: Lets hope that steamroller keeps rolling on for the rest of the season……….

On Josh’s rink with RKJ, Kev and Gerry always in front they finished 21-13 up.

On Calvin’s rink with Larry, Nigel and Vince, it was not quite so dominant s performance from Redland and after being 12-11 up at 12 ends fell away slightly to end 13-22 down, but as the other rinks were well in front we could live with it.

Well done all next round away against Olveston- a much more tricky proposition!

PS Late news in tells me that unfortunately the NE TEam lost their Knock Out Cup game against Bristol St Andrews by 6 shots – a good effort, commiserations to all involved.
