Report by David Raison

On Sunday, May 19 Merrow hosted Milford for a match of four triples.

Milford brought a strong team. The atmosphere was friendly and well contested. At the end of the match honours were even, with each team winning on two rinks. However, Merrow prevailed to win 66-62.

Wednesday, May 22 saw Merrow play one of their few evening matches. On this occasion we visited Westfield for a match of four triples.

Getting play under way, Westfield verses Merrow.

We were blessed with a lovely evening on which to play bowls, although the low sun did pose a few problems until the trees gave us some shade.

The match started well for Merrow, on a green that was reasonably fast with few problems. As this was an evening match, we played straight through without a break for tea, so it was essential to have a drink to hand.

The Merrow bowlers gave a good account of themselves, with each rink playing hard for a result.

Bowls everywhere!

Unfortunately, we were unable to turn our efforts into a positive result, with Westfield winning 74-62 overall.

However, there were good results for two of our teams. Sue, Allen, and David E won 17-16, with Debbie, Lorna, and Ken winning 17-13. A big “well done” to both teams.

Brian watches as his team’s bowl arrives.

After the match, Westfield laid on tea, which was enjoyed by all.

We look forward to the return match at Merrow on July 14.
