Two Silver Medals and Two ‘Adopted Golds

A bit like Friday, when we didn’t win eitherr Fours, on Sunday the men had a jolly good go at the County Senior Fours Final, but alas came second.  They were catching up after a slow start but ran out of ends.  Well done to Gym for stepping in as Gordon (who had been in the team for all the previous rounds) was sadly having to quarantine after returning from holiday in France.

Sarah & Lucy started comfortably in the Middlesex Two Bowl Pairs semi-final and then their opponents from Bush Hill Park started creeping up the scoreboard.  Our girls are tough and held their nerve to win putting themselves into the afternoon’s Final v Winchmore Hill.  Pam & Sandra had had a convincing win v Marion & Anna from Ashford in the semi.  It was Pam & Sandra’s day though and they won 15-9 after 17 ends.  Another great effort from Sarah & Lucy.  They have a great bond on the green with good communication between them.  Vital.  Let’s hope they go on to win some competitions over the next seasons.  They certainly deserve to!

On to the adopted Golds!  Dave Pitt was skipping the Senior Fours that beat our chaps, so a gold for him and his team, but an even bigger Gold as he won the Men’s Championship v Glen Adams in the afternoon.  Dave was behind the whole game until an excellent end put him 20-18 – into the lead for the first time!  In the next end, despite great shots from both players, Dave managed to keep shot to take the title.  A very worthy final and both Dave and Glen head off to Leamington to represent Middlesex in the National Championships.  Good luck to them!
