Merrow entertained Westfield on Sunday, 16th July for a match of three triples. A dry but humid afternoon beckoned and, although a brief light shower did come over, we were lucky with the weather.
Due to last-minute withdrawals, both sides fielded teams of nine players, allowing us to play three rinks of triples. A very strong Westfield side made Merrow work hard for every point. Westfield won two of the three rinks, with the margin on two rinks being just a single point; one to Mwerrow and one to Westfield. Sadly, your correspondent did less well, losing by a larger margin. The final points total was Merrow 36, Westfield 49.
On a very hot and humid day, the half-time break was very welcome. Tea and homemade cakes were very well received by both teams.
This was our first fixture with Westfield, and both sides agreed that further matches would be a good idea, so next year should see both home and away fixtures with Westfield.
