Bleak Cup week for Brotherhood

There were defeats for three Brotherhood Clubs, as well as
favourites Nomads Panthers, in this week’s quarter-final matches
in the Clacton League’s Knock-Out Cup.
Current Division Two pace-setters Brotherhood D finally met their
match, suffering their first reverse in any competition this season
5-0 at the hands of the top-flight, on-song ,Windsor Hawks’ trio of
Daniel Young, Felipe Rodriguez and Ian Fielder.
Division One side Walton C were 5-2 winners over Brotherhood F,
Mark Gale, Paul Meikle and reserve Mo Hardy proving a touch too
experienced for their younger Division Three opponents.
In an all-Third Division encounter, Nomads Bobcats’ Matt Sage,
Alex Baldock and Jack Riddleston beat Brotherhood E 5-1,
Brotherhood’s only success Tricia Salter and Rodney Betts’ (-5)
14-12 in the fifth doubles win over Baldock and Riddleston (+1).
In the fourth quarter-final, James Denyer was absent from the
Nomads Panthers’ line-up, but it was still something of a surprise
that Windsor Penguins finished 5-1 victors, Neil Chegwidden,
Annabelle Stallwood and Kayley Rodriguez the winning trio.
