On Saturday, 15th September, Merrow bowlers travelled to Seale & Sands for our first friendly with the club.
Preparing for a match of four triples, we were blessed with a warm and sunny afternoon.
All rinks were playing with great friendliness and humour so, on breaking for tea after ten ends, the scores were looking quite respectable. We all enjoyed our tea, kindly provided by Rosemary and Colin, and the raffle was shared equally between the teams with both captains winning.
Unfortunately, Merrow’s Mark was not well enough to continue after the break, so his place was taken by super-sub Ben, playing in only his second match. Well done Ben. We also had Julian playing in his first away match, who also acquitted himself well.
After the final end, we were surprised to find that two rinks had drawn, and each side had won on one rink. The final scores were Merrow 47, Seale & Sands 53.
A splendid afternoon was enjoyed by all, and we look forward to hosting the return match in 2019.
