On a blustery morning Felixstowe were on the wrong side of a narrow defeat at home to Clacton.
Thinking that the windy conditions would be in our favour it was pointed out that Clacton is also on the coast thus nullifying our advantage.
Bryan and Mike led a valiant charge thanks to some sustenance at the half way stage, notably some sloe gin supplied by the Clacton Captain.
Barry Jones return of form, along with Mike Pulford, helped to sustain the pressure on Clacton, but alas the rest of the Felixstowe team could not keep up the momentum in this close encounter.
