DRAWS GALORE FOR NMTTC (WEEK 3 RESULTS)
The New Milton Club came up with four draws out of their eight matches in the Bournemouth and District league last week, every one of the ties coming at the death by winning the doubles.
The G team’s Simon Golding came up with his second hat-trick in a row to help his team to their draw against Bmth Sports G in Div 3 down at Mudeford Wood. Also in Div 3, Mike Roberts picked up his first hat-trick of the campaign in his F team’s dead heat against Bmth Sports H away at Chapel Gate. Both players had a hand in winning their team’s doubles which went all the way to five ends, as did the other doubles in the club’s draws.
The club’s only win came in Div 1 as the B team beat Bmth Sports C 6-4 at Mudeford Wood courtesy of England veteran Brian Bickell’s second hat-trick in a row (Brian is pictured below). Impressive new signing Francis Benjamin also came up with his second treble on the trot as he helped his K team to a precious point away against Winton YMCA E in Div 5.
