Once everybody has managed to stagger through the Army & Navy Rugby traffic, we had a very enjoyable afternoon in the first Richmond & Barnes League match v Ashford, despite the still heavyish green and cold. ( What happened to the 19c and sun that was forecast in the morning? Jane nearly had to serve soup and hot Bovril instead of beer to warm us up!)
Good to see Reg, Brian C, Graham Kellet, Corale, Tina. Nadine & Jean in our supporters gallery. Thanks
There were wins for Ashford v Ann and Anthony’s rinks but an outstanding 38-7 win for Norman, Laurence, Alasdair & Mike C. If only Laurence hadn’t done a wrong bias, it might have been 39!!
1 point for a winning rink and 1 point for an overall shot win. Cambridge Park managed to pull off the overall win by 64-57 so congratulations to everyone who played. Even the minimal score on our rink contributed!
We hope Anthony’s elbow and Andy’s back aren’t too sore today.
In the National comps, Ashford had a win in the Family Pairs with Mark & Vicki Smith beating Ange & Scott Cumine; and Martin Payne & Lou Putnam beating Tina Cooper & Ashley in the Mixed Pairs having beaten Lucy & Norman the previous weekend.
More Middlesex as well as National comps this week so good luck on and all.
