Mike Jackson, Team Manager:

“We made a great start to our Middleton campaign with a hard fought one shot win  (16 – 6). A flying start saw us go 32 shots up after 5 ends but Somerset came back strongly and with ends running out they took the lead. With 3 ends left overall fantastic counts of 7 and 3 on the rinks skipped by Neil Collett and Dave Godwin saw us regain the lead by 2 shots. Gary Morphet’s rink played the last end and saw us home by dropping just a single shot.

The team showed great spirit to weather the Somerset comeback and bounce back for the win which sets us up nicely for the rest of the campaign.”

 

Salisbury & District defeat Bowls Wiltshire at Pewsey Vale BC

BW Mixed Friendly v Salisbury & District Association played on 2nd June 2019 at Pewsey Bowls Club.

Although the afternoon was overcast and drizzling of rain, the weather did not affect the game, this was played with high spirits and much laughter.  BW lost by 85 shots to 107.

Many thanks were given to Pewsey BC for their hospitality and the excellent meal provided.

Fines were levied and after a general collection a grand sum of £68.91 was collected for the chosen 2019 BW Charity – Alzheimers Society.

Chair June wished to thank all for a most enjoyable afternoon and for everyone’s generosity.
