On Saturday, 22nd June, Merrow bowlers made the journey to Ottershaw for our annual fixture. It promised to be a hot and sunny afternoon, and we weren’t disappointed.
We played three rinks of triples, with a break for tea at the halfway mark, nine ends. Ottershaw fielded a team of very experienced bowlers, in contrast to our team where most have less than five years experience. Experience shone through as Ottershaw started to rack up the points, leading to an overall win of 64-28. A big “well done” to Ken, Debbie and Lorna who came very close, losing by just four points. As a side, we did our best against very strong opposition and acquitted ourselves well, despite the score.
We only play Ottershaw once a year, so our next meeting will be at Merrow in 2020.
