Country Bowls Report

May 2018 - La Siesta & Country Bowls

Photos & text by Geoff Paylor & Gordon Dixon, photo editing  by Amber Dineen & John Carr. 

The ‘Badgers’ travelled to the ‘Hornets’ nest at La Siesta on Monday in search of valuable points after last weeks disappointment.

Alas, with the team cut to the bone in terms of players for selection we got what we deserved and came away with our tails firmly between our legs.

I don’t doubt for a moment that the team gave 100% effort but the ‘Hornets’ had just a little more quality and luck.

Scores are as follows;

Linda Freeman, Derek Jiggins & Geoff Paylor. 26 – 8

Lynne Bryce, Peter Dix & Gary Ponsford. 20 – 18

Ben Nokes, Peter Robins & Andy Bryce. 17 – 17

5 points for us with 9 to La Siesta.

Shots Badgers 90 – Hornets 119

Many thanks to Dave Smith & Derek Jiggins for turning up at short notice.

On Wednesday, Horadada were the latest team to play at Country Bowls in the VCL.

Early on all games were evenly balanced except the pairs where Country Bowls gained an early

substantial lead.

In the singles Country Bowls gradually got on top and ran out worthy winners. The pairs were

consistent and won rather easily and the trips had a titanic struggle but came up with a strong last

end to triumph.

The rinks were put under a lot of pressure by a very good Horadada team who dominated the later

ends to come out on top.

All in all a good win for Country Bowls 10 – 2 which lifts us from the bottom of the league, a very

enjoyable and friendly mornings bowls played in the glorious sunshine.

Scores are as follows;

Ladies Singles. Trish Dix. 21 – 2

Gents Singles. Peter Dix. 21 – 2

Pairs. Brenda Jiggins & Geoff Paylor. 31- 2

Triples. Salma Hempstead, Derek Jiggins & Phil Warrington. 17 – 2

Rinks. Graham Richardson, Ben Noke, John Hassell & John Mallet. 10 – 0

Total Shots. 100 – 75
