Merrow Village Bowls Club’s annual President versus Chairman match on Saturday, September 12, was played under a warm, clear sky.

We were to play four rinks of pairs over 18 ends. Chairman Brian elected to play the first nine ends, with Robin taking his place for the remainder of the match, and demonstrating how his bowling has come on.

There was a lot of intense bowling on all rinks. New members Bill and Graham proved formidable opposition for Sally and John, winning by a substantial margin.

The teams had been organised by our coach, David E, who had given us a green to be proud of. President David M, unable to play, watched from the sidelines.

Plenty of spectators.

The president’s team were up eight shots at half way, and it was all square at 14 ends. However, after a hard-fought match, the Chair won 73-59.

Here are all the results, President’s teams first:

John and Sally 10 v Graham and Bill 26.

Allen and Joan 16 v Colin and Jarek 23.

David and Lorna 20 v David F and Sue 10.

Andy and Mark 13 v Ken and Brian / Robin 14.

A well earned rest.

The afternoon was rounded off with a picnic. There was plenty of animated conversation and laughter, a hallmark of our friendly club.

We all look forward to returning in 2021 to resume our outdoor bowling.

No match without these two!
