Mike Jackson, Team Manager:

“We made a great start to our Middleton campaign with a hard fought one shot win  (16 – 6). A flying start saw us go 32 shots up after 5 ends but Somerset came back strongly and with ends running out they took the lead. With 3 ends left overall fantastic counts of 7 and 3 on the rinks skipped by Neil Collett and Dave Godwin saw us regain the lead by 2 shots. Gary Morphet’s rink played the last end and saw us home by dropping just a single shot.

The team showed great spirit to weather the Somerset comeback and bounce back for the win which sets us up nicely for the rest of the campaign.”
