On Wednesday, 5th July, Merrow hosted Mayford Hall for three rinks of triples. Mayford could only raise eight players, so your correspondent was drafted in to their team.
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any hotter, it did! The temperature must have been in the mid-30s on the green. Due to one of the Mayford players being taken ill during the match Lesley kindly stepped in as a replacement.
Despite my best efforts on rink three, Merrow managed handsome wins on all three rinks, with an overall points total of 73 – 35. However, I must commend our visitors for giving us a very friendly and sporting match.
Thanks to Brian Reigate for providing much needed refreshments at the break!
