Merrow Bowls Club, report by David Raison

On the evening of Wednesday, July, 12, Merrow played a friendly of four triples at Holloway Hill, Godalming.

Holloway Hill verses Merrow.

Although the day had not been promising following early rain, the evening proved to be warm and dry. However, the earlier rain did make the green a little heavy and difficult to read.

The match was played with a great deal of effort from both sides, with Holloway Hill coming out on top, winning on three rinks and also on points 66 -57.

Merow away to Holloway Hill, Godalming.

Congratulations to captain Brian Taylor and his team of the two Kens, Webb and Burburry, who were our only winners. A true captain’s game!

Merrow entertained Westfield on Sunday, July 16, for a match of three triples. A dry but humid afternoon beckoned and, although a brief light shower did come over, we were lucky with the weather.Due to last-minute withdrawals, both sides fielded teams of nine players, allowing us to play three rinks of triples.

Merrow at home to Westfield.

A very strong Westfield side made Merrow work hard for every point. Westfield won two of the three rinks, with the margin on two rinks being just a single point; one to Mwerrow and one to Westfield. Sadly, your correspondent did less well, losing by a larger margin. The final points total was Merrow 36, Westfield 49.

On a very hot and humid day, the half-time break was very welcome. Tea and homemade cakes were very well received by both teams.

This was our first fixture with Westfield, and both sides agreed that further matches would be a good idea, so next year should see both home and away fixtures with Westfield.
