On our hottest day this year, 17th June, Merrow welcomed Albury for a friendly, consisting of four rinks of triples. Due to injury and the heat, Merrow fielded two reserves; Calvin Haggis and Allen Mead, both of whom stepped in at short notice.
The match started well for Merrow, but once Albury got into their stride, there was no going back, with Albury winning on three rinks and overall 47 – 81.
Congratulations to Merrow’s Allen Mead (substituted by Richard Duddy at tea), Calvin Haggis, and Colin Mitchell, who won their rink by 22 – 12 against the run of play.
