On Saturday 11th May, Merrow bowlers travelled to Liphook for a match of four triples. Leaving Guildford in the rain and hail, we were pleasantly surprised to find Liphook sunny and dry.
The match was closely fought, with the lead moving first one way and then the other. After a break for tea and cake, both sides resumed battle much refreshed. The eventual outcome went in Liphook’s favour, with a score of 81-62. Liphook won on three rinks but congratulations to Ron, Len, and Bob on their win of 22-20. There was a narrow loss by a single point for Lorna, Debbie, and John; well played, you nearly made it.
We look forward to entertaining Liphook later in the year.
A very enjoyable fixture! Despite several interruptions for heavy showers and a pitch, much heavier than ours at Merrow, we competed well against very sociable and evenly matched opposition, losing by just 6 points overall but winning on two rinks.
