Match Report for friendly against Bere Alston Bowling Club

Matches were played against Bere Alston (on tour from Devon) at Meyrick Park on the 16th and 17th of June.

Wednesday’s weather was bright and fair,

A good day for bowls almost anywhere,

But Meyrick Park in the sun is the best place I do declare,

With a final score of 4 rinks to 2, with 1 rink drawn it was a hard-fought affair,

However, a jolly good time was had by all that were there.

Rink scores were as follows,

Trish Leach, Gary Gerard - Tofts, Roy Bray won 19 - 11.

Annie Bugiel, Peter Crowe, Roger Baksa lost 15 - 19.

Yvonne Dawson, Krys Bugiel, John Clifford lost 14 - 19.

Terry Warren, Tina Dix, Lyn Elder picked up one shot on last end to win 14 - 13.

Rob Morgan, John Morris, John Barclay held off a spirited fight back from the visitors to win 15 - 13.

Val Honan, John Jerzak, Alan Staniford never trailed and finished with a 16 - 10 win.

Alice Crowe, Andy Roberts, Geoff Jones went into the last end trailing 12 - 16, but picked up four shots to level the score 16 - 16.

Thursday’s weather brought showers of rain.

Not such a good day, but the enthusiasm didn’t wain,

Both teams played well and fought hard not to be slain.

With a final score of 1 rink to 2, Bournemouth’s dreams were all in vain.

Another jolly good time was had all the same.

Rink scores were as follows,

Yvonne Dawson, Peter Crowe, Krys Bugiel lost 8 - 17.

Denise Ciantar, Brian Carr, Alex Roberts won 18 - 14.

Terry Warren, Trish Leach, Andy Roberts lost 10 - 22.

Sadly, the friendly away to Amesbury Bowling Club on the 28th of June has been cancelled and so our next friendly is a few weeks away against Bromley Bowling Club on the 5th of July.

Best Wishes.
