On Sunday, 23rd April, Merrow Village Bowls Club travelled to Liphook for their first match of the 2017/18 season. We were blessed with a reasonably fine day, some even had to remove their jackets and jumpers because of the warmth!
The match was close-fought, with each of the four rinks frequently changing leaders. Eventually, Merrow managed to break through to win by eight points overall, also winning on three of the four rinks. The match was a very friendly affair, with plenty of banter among the players. Merrow were also pleased to welcome a new member, Nick, who played extremely well.
Following the match, Liphook provided a welcome tea, with delicious home-made cakes. We look forward to entertaining Liphook at Merrow on 5th August.
