For their last game of the year (and the decade), the Hustlers returned to the Double Barrel to take on the Celery Boys with 5 changes in the team. Could they give Cap’n Clive an early Christmas present?
Setting, AU began in good form, his spare helping him to top score. Jimbo made an impression on his debut, snatching Barry the Brasilian out of Rob’s loving grasp. So 1st leg handed over 15 pins down. 2nd leg put nin the performance of the night to pull back 5 pins, with Rich getting his second consecutive 40.
3rd leg struggled, but only lost a further 2 pins as they handed the anchor a 12 pin deficit to make up. An up-and-down leg ensued, with nobody shining in a very consistent set of totals, dropping 11 pins in the process, handing the Celery Boys an early Christmas present.
Stu now leaves us to carry out his annual spell of missionary work in the colonies and has probably played his last game of the season. Next time we’re away AGAIN – Tuesday 5 Jan 2010 at the robins Club.
