Norwich is, if honest, a little isolated. There seems to be no quick way to get to the city either by road or rail and the journey just seems far longer than it really should (some of the scenery en-route is not that inspiring either) however when you do get there what a delightful city it is!
We were met by our good friends Tim, Georgie and Tom at Norwich station at 11.15 (after leaving Derby at 07.53) to go dragon hunting. There are in total 84 GoGoDragons ...
... fried doughnuts and passed them around. Truly decadent. With our bellies full, we rolled out of town. Richard was in hunt of a good pint before bed so we stopped at a pub called the Boathouse, also on the Broad. Most of us were so full, we found it difficult to drink a full pint.
Tomorrow we will be leaving Pat's place and heading towards London for our match in Aylesbury. So it will be an early morning of packing.

We matched up against Broadlands at 4. I played Jon, who was a definite runner. He had a lot of heart on court. I won 3-1. Richard played a guy called Jamie who had won the 40+ at the British Open.

We hopped in the van and drove to Norwich, about 45 minutes away. First stop was the East Anglia Squash and Racquet ...
... was interesting because it sloped down towards the back of the court so high lobs were a definite no.
I played a guy in his late 50's named Dev. He was a bit tougher than my match the night before but my belly was way too full. The game scores were 12-14, 13-7, 6-13, 11-13. The scores weren't too bad but I couldn't hit tight length to save me and the springs in my legs seemed non-existent. Our team score was 5-4 in matches over Gresham, a narrow ...
