Clean sweep for Broom as Caversham sunk by the river

Don’t be fooled by the smiles! It was a pretty tough day all round for Caversham’s Advantage League team at Phyllis Court on Friday.

A few drinks on the exclusive terrace overlooking the Henley Regatta finish was about as good as it got.

But — because we were notionally the ‘home’ team against their C side — we had to treat them after they had given us something of a spanking.

It finished 11-5, with Phyllis Court’s Alastair Broom winning all four of his matches (see below).

Charles Briggs and I managed to salvage a bit of pride and I particularly enjoyed giving their captain a bit of a thrashing to round off the day.
