"Age shall not weary them..."
Simon Woolfries reports:
09/12/15: The most recent edition of the VOI v VOW* fixture produced a successful evening yesterday at Westminster with the VOI six winning 3-0 in spite of the OWs turning out two ‘juniors’ (by agreement). The victorious VOI side think that their team might well be the oldest three pairs ever turned out for a bona fide fixture by anyone and they challenge the Fives world to come up with an older six! The combined age was 386 with Nick Bunyan the youngest at 60 and Nigel Cox (of course) the oldest at 70.
P.Boughton & N.Bunyan beat J.Shaw & A.Jackson 12-9, 2-12, 12-11
R.Pattison & S.Woolfries beat E.Levy & F.Krespi 12-11, 12-6, 12-4
N.Cox & J.Caudle beat N.Williams & P.Hooper 12-2, 12-5, 12-4
