Thursday Boarder League Home to Popes Mead

This was our first Boarder League game if the season. A cold evening threatened rain but stayed mostly dry.
A competitive match saw Dorking lose on two rinks and win on one, with Two points to Dorking and Eight to Popes Mead.
Peter Revell, Richard, Alec and Paul Mc A won the last end to win by one shot. 
The other two rinks were closely fought with Martin S, Ted, Ray and Dave M going down by four shots and James W, Graham, Trevor and John B also narrowly losing
 
A special mention for Ted who played his first border league game and acquitted himself well. Ted was a new starter last season and it’s great to see new faces coming through.

Saturday ESL Away to Croydon

This was an away East Surrey fours match at Croydon and we expected tough games on a fast green. In fact the green was superb and the fastest we have played on so far. But we all knuckled down and gave an excellent account of ourselves. Jim M’s rink ( Jim, Richard, Martin and Trevor) made an impressive 13 points in the first half but then struggled and the opposition clawed back to finish in a draw 16 all.
Peter H’s rink ( Peter, James, Alec and Kevin) established a commanding 18 to 2 lead by the 11th end and continued to finish well up at 21 to 13. Peter R’s rink ( Peter, Steve J Paul Mc and David M) had a good start, with good lead play from Steve J, but it was nick and tuck for most of the match. Finally with some really superb draws from Paul Mc, particularly over the final 3 ends, we came up trumps at 22 to 19. Overall what a result for us; two winning rinks and one drawn!
Last but not least, the Ladies (Marilyn, Paula and Shirley) won on their friendly triple. All the games were played in a competitive sporting way on a beautiful sunny afternoon. To my mind, it was bowls as good as you can imagine.
