The club’s first home match on Saturday 23rd April against Ottershaw saw both teams with slightly depleted sides due to early season absences, resulting in a game of 2 triples and 1 rink versus a triple  ( 9 players against 10) .  The match was closely fought throughout in chilly but bright conditions on a green which was noticeably getting faster as it was being played on and by the end just starting to take more turn.  Merrow welcomed 2 new members playing their first games for the club, Debbie and David Ewins, who appeared to enjoy themselves despite the cold.   At the finish it was the home side who got in front just at the right time, but the score–48 shots to 47, reflected just how close the match was.
