On Wednesday, 5th June, Merrow travelled to Puttenham for a match of three triples. The weather was cool and threatened rain, although we were fortunate to have a dry afternoon.
As ever, we were made very welcome by the Puttenham bowlers and the match was soon underway. Puttenham’s green is rather different to most that we play on. It is quite short and, unusually, doubles up as a putting green for the adjacent golf club.
Merrow soon worked out how the green was running and moved ahead early on. A welcome stop for tea after nine ends helped us all warm up and enjoy some sandwiches and cakes. After the break, it was business as usual, with Merrow scoring well. The final result was a win for Merrow, 53-37. Top rink was Sue, Lesley and David R with a score of 22-8; well done team.
We look forward to entertaining Puttenham at Merrow on 14th August.
