Sub-Team KO Final preview

Veterans 10-Man League


Two of the top teams from Sections 3 and 4 will fight out the Final of this year's Sub-Team KO at Broad Oak on Thursday when Lowerhouses and Huddersfield Recreation Club go head-to-head. Both clubs have won this title before. Lowerhouses were the second-ever winners back in 1985 whilst the Huddersfield Recreation Club won it in 1998 and 2001 in (one of) their previous form as Zeneca.


The Recreation Club come into the match in the better form having won 10 of their last 11 matches including a resounding 9-0 home win over the nearest rivals for the Section 4 title on Tuesday. Lowerhouses warmed up for the contest with an impressive 8-1 home win on Tuesday and both teams will fancy their chances of claiming the silverware.


Should the handicap come into play then the advantage is with the Recreation Club as they have a +30 handicap whilst Lowerhouses is a little less at +25.


The Sub-Team Knock-Out is for the teams that do not qualify for the Team Knock-Out which is primarily teams that finished the previous League season in the bottom half of the Section 3 table or in Sections 4 or 5. The format is the same as a League match, 4 Singles and 3 Pairs with the better aggregate score determining the winner. In the event of a draw then the team that won most of the 7 individual games will be declared the winner.


Unfortunately, I am out of the country (Wales) for a couple of days so won't be able to capture on camera the presentation and general match snapshots as normal so if anyone is able to take that job on then I, and the two teams, would appreciate it.
