On what must have been the hottest day of the year so far, Merrow welcomed Horsell Bowls Club to our green.
We played four rinks of triples, with high hopes of a good match. The green had been improved since our last match against Liphook, and we were quite positive. However, the gods were not with us, as we went down 45 – 87, losing on all four rinks. Still, it was a good-natured match, and I’m sure everyone enjoyed the day.
It was not all bad news though. Rink 1 had been leading for much of their match, eventually losing by four points. Well done Mark and David E for a storming performance (your correspondent was also on this rink but can’t claim any credit). Rink 3 also saw a fine performance by Merrow, again losing by just four points. Well done Mike M, Allen M and Bob C.
In the words of D:Ream, “things can only get better”.
