On Saturday 6th Ocotber, we securd a 12 shot win v Hounslow in the Yetton Trophy. This is the first time since I started playing that we have won our first round.
The home spectators bit their nails down to the quick after Jean’s rink made a massive comeback from 1-17 down to lose 20-24. Dawn’s rink was nip and tuck the whole way and won 16-15. We stood with bated breath on the green as Archie tapped in the away scores – tap, tap, …….. tap, tap, tap, tap, tap, tap, tap, tap …. tap, tap, tap, tap – what an amazing final 3 ends putting Sheila’s and Joan’s rinks into winning positions! It was difficult to suppress the euphoria, but we are British!
Well done to:
Sarah, Anita, Ann D & Jean
Audrey, Brenda, Ange & Dawn
Joan H, Suzy, Amanda & Sheila C
Di, Frances, Sheila M & Joan O’N
Next round is on 20th v Donyngs in Redhill – 2 tinks home, 2 away. It’s also the first round of the Denny Cup for the men, so all four rinks will be action.
