The senior team assembled on home turf for the final match of this year’s Albion League. After last month’s loss to Colchester, hopes of regaining winning form were no doubt high – and perhaps optimistic in light of the worsening, challenging weather conditions AND the arrival of a very strong team from West Essex.
Tim, Andy and Geri were again absent but lining up were our awesome matrimonial partnership of Grant and Jackie H, captain Ian B, Phil Rowberry, team stalwarts Grant and Jim, Iain Martin and Brian.
In cold, blustery winds and intermittent showers, RTAC battled valiantly against solid shooting from Richard Hammond, Peter Dent and Paralympic Squad member Simon Powell – in the end we lost out by a fairly narrow margin of 158 points with 3715 against WE’s 3823.
Well done West Essex, and to the RTAC team for a fabulous season which put us in 3rd overall in Division 1.
