Alas, the curtains came down on our Top Club adventure when we lost to Gerrard’s Cross ladies who played better than us on the night.
Ange & Jean had a terrific win the Pairs.
Tina, Audrey, Nadine & Cathy only lost by 2 shots.
Sarah, Lucy & Tricia gave it all they got and even when they were holding 5, the Bowls England President (who was skipping against them) came in to take the shots away. They did pick up a 5 on the 16th end, but it was too late to get enough shots in to add to our overall score.
Dawn went down by 11 shots in the Singles. Her report stated “Could do better.”
Anyway, well done to tonight’s team and Ann supporting us from afar as she was unable to play in this match. Not every club can say they made it to the last 32 in the country, so we should be proud of our achievement.
Many thanks to Norman for marking the Singles and to Mike, Steve, Barry, Teresa, Corale, Jacquie, Marie, Janice from CP and Karen from West Ealing who came over to support and thanks to Ladygate for hosting the match. Much appreciated.
We wish Gerrards Cross every success in the last 16 v either Herts or Royston and hopefully through to the quarter finals and onwards at Leamington.
