The Dream Fades

Sun 23 Nov - On a thoroughly wet Sunday at Luton Petanque Club in Stopsley, the Panthers had their big day in the last 16 of the EPA Club competition
A virtual demolition of the Rayne Swan PC (Eastern Region) by 4-1 was followed by the narrowest of 2-3 defeats to Baldock PC (Chiltern Region) when victory would have virtually assured us of a place in the last 4. Helen, Tony and John shone on the day, taking some notable 'scalps' and, with a bit more from the rest of us, Panthers could have been one step away from 'Europe.' With little at stake in the last round we managed only a 1-4 defeat to the Railway PC (Kent) who had earlier surprisingly surrendered 0-5 to Baldock
Our thanks go to the Luton PC for hosting the event and, in particular, to Neil Stevenson of Chiltern Region for cheerfully umpiring in miserable conditions
