Hairy Potter and the Half Cut Prince v Kings Arms Ladies

Previous encounters between these two teams have included them dressing up as Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus & Elves while more recently the men dressed as women and the girls dressed as the actual male players! There was no fancy dress in this cup match but it was certainly no less fun. The Potters took a 4-2 lead in the singles with victories from the Ladies coming from captain Ali Freeborough who beat Kevin Birks (only his 2nd loss this season) and Betty Belshaw beating Danny McDonald who has returned to pool this year after a 4 year break. The Potters also took 2 of the 3 pairs games to win a close match 6-3 with Potters captain John Wright literally eating his words of an earlier prediction of an easy victory.
