An 11-man Hustler team proved no match for a high scoring Seagull team at the United Services Club in the first (and, for us, only) round of the Hospitals Cup.
A dull evening against a characterless team resulted in a defeat for the Hustlers – but at least the beer was good!
Following their victory at the Adam and Eve, it was back to normal as the Hustlers returned to the Suffolk Arms and suffered their first defeat of the season against All Stars.
Paradise beckoned for the Hustlers as they started their season at the Adam and Eve. First leg got off to a resounding start with a 14 spare by Lofty and a slightly less impressive 9 spare by Neil, but it was Lloyd who took the honours with a top score of 47, giving Hustlers a commanding lead of 24 pins.
