    In reference to the comment on the Ruthin As match vs. Llanferres B Cup match:

    ‘The 16– 0 defeat of Llanferres B (+7) by Ruthin A (-6) raises questions about the handicapping of these two teams. Only Simon and June Lovell at first mixed came near to a win when they fought gamely but were eventually outplayed by Fiona Reid and Jeff Brown 21/19 and 21/20’.

    I think that the handicapping was fair. Llanferres due to circumstances outside their control played up no less than 3, if not more, reserves on the night. Credit has to be given to them in the way they went about the match, introducing their younger players to competitive badminton and building for the future. Had their first eight players being available then the outcome of the match may not have been so clear cut.

    Thank you

      Owain, you are absolutely right, both handicaps are fair. Unfortunately Llanferres B were without some of their normal players and clearly the Ruthin A all played up to their handicap. We have to handicap based on the best team each Club have registered, but on the night, Llanferres fielded a much weaker set of players. Mike probably does not know all the players available for each team and his comments were purely based on the 16-0 result.
