The club enjoyed a six-a-side match last night against a Jesters team organised by ex-Executioner Rupert Mathieu – and enjoyed it particularly after emerging as the narrow winners. Rupert and partner Penn Chai led from the front, winning all three of their games for the Jesters, but their other two pairs (Simon Stokes/Jon Peterson and Charles Rogers/Malcolm Borthwick) weren’t able to match their team-mates’ performances; and, with wins in every other match, the Executioners ran out winners. Top scorers for the home side were Alex Steel/Andy Pringle, who took 42 from a possible 45 points, while both other pairings (Ben Hale/Guy Matthews and Richard Bridge/Dick Warner/Robert Mathias) scored 35 points. In the end, and despite Rupert’s frantic efforts, the Executioners took the match 112-104.
Scores: Bridge & Warner/Mathias bt Stokes & Peterson 15-8, bt Rogers & Borthwick 15-11, lost to Mathieu & Chai 5-15; Pringle & Steel bt Stokes & Peterson 15-3, bt Rogers & Borthwick 15-10, lost to Mathieu & Chai 12-15; Hale & Matthews bt Stokes & Peterson 16-14, bt Rogers & Borthwick 15-13, lost to Mathieu & Chai 4-15
Overall: Executioners bt Jesters 112-104 points
