CITY & COUNTY v CHELTENHAM

Despite over 8mm of rain falling in the morning, and many of us expecting a phone call from the skipper to say it's off, the weather foiled us again, the sun came out and delighted us all to a splendid afternoon for bowls, and provided a very warm welcome to our friends from Cheltenham.

City took control of the match easing out to a 16 shot lead after just 5 ends, at 10 ends that quickly widened to 41 shots, the City going on to win the game quite comfortably 120-79

HWR - John Drage, Alan Holmes, Keith Croxon, Geoff Powell  +24 shots

Great company as usual from the Cheltenham Lads.

The Ladies Match told very much the same story, with City getting away to a flying start 21-8 after 5 ends.

A dazzling display from Vicky Harrisons Triple ( Julie Jackson & Liz Bye ) picking up 16 shots over the last 7 ends, to win 30-6,was enough to stem any hope of a comeback from the Cheltenham Ladies. A solid 67-27 Victory for the City.
