Saturday February 2nd 2019 v The School

Won 195-373.

A mixture of current pupils and staff, as well as a few ex-staff, took on an extremely strong Pilgrims team. We brought some of the very best Fives players from the last thirty years, including a number of National Champions. However, despite our’ strength, the four boys involved were a great credit to the School. Harry Le Maistre and Will Barker used their tricky serves and powerful shots to good effect, whilst Harry Harvey and Benedict Mercer showed they were comfortable in a rally with the best that The Pilgrims had to offer.

It was a match which lasted three and a half hours and some pairs played ten games, when five would be more standard for a school match. The overall score was perhaps inevitably a comfortable win for The Pilgrims (195-373).
