Ealing retained the Lloyd Pratt Mallet in a closely fought contest against High Wycombe in our annual start-of-the-season match on Saturday 22 April. The match traditionally includes both GC and AC games, with eight players from each club competing. The match ended at four games all, which meant that the result was decided by a penalty shootout. This involves hitting the centre peg from the boundary, and is much more difficult than its football equivalent, which is why only one player succeeded in hitting the peg, namely Ealing’s star penalty taker, Fred White-Overton. ‘Right’, said Fred as he stepped up to the mark. Well done to all who participated and a special thankyou to those who prepared the lawns. They were running beautifully.
