HGSRC 5ths won a tightly contested match against Wycombe 3rds on Sunday which went down to the final game, won by Daniel Allington, 3-0.
Up until that point we'd done well to keep our noses ahead, especially given that three of our team were playing only their second matches for the club.
Well done to the team, a great win to end the year.
