PARWICH CROWN GREEN BOWLS CLUB
We are rapidly approaching the sharp end of the season in the Leagues that we play in. As you avid readers of this stuff will know the Thursday League has become the ‘Thursday after the day before League’, however we are still in with a shout of promotion from the Tuesday League. You also obviously missed the fabulous sports report for last week’s matches, but grandchildren do get in the way don’t they. However because of that you will have to put up with a double helping this week.
Matlock Tuesday bowls league.
Away – Hathersage – 18 August – 6.30pm.
Top of the league and away from home today, it was a case of damage limitation if we wanted to keep in touch with possible promotion. Dawn A and Tony A had a great win 21 – 18. Not to be outdone Rick and Edith also won 21 – 18. When results like this occur there is always a ‘but’ and it was that we lost the next two games by a considerable margin. The final score was Hathersage 78, Parwich 59. Even after this result we have still hung on to third place, but now we were very much in third. More than twenty points behind the second team instead of 6.
Home – Chatsworth – 25 August – 6.30pm
After last week we needed to try and get a really good score, and a good score we did get. We won three games out of 4 with the dynamic duo Dawn A and Dot H winning 21 – 2! Matching this score Rick and Edith won 21 – 6. Last but by no means least Harry B and John B won 21 – 17. The final score was Parwich 76 – 46. This score could close the gap which opened up after last week. Only one more match to go in this League. Watch this space for next week’s nail biting finally!
Next match- Away – Ashwood Park – 1 September – 6.00pm.
Matlock Thursday Friendly League.
Home – Wirksworth – 20 August – 1.45pm
It was good to see that our doubles pairs won this week even if it was by only two points, but what a win by Sue A and Harry B 21 – 4. The singles matches were equally tight with both teams scoring 71 points each. Tony A leading the way winning 15 – 5 and Edith 15 – 9. The final score was a win to Parwich 119 – 117.
Away – Hope Works – 27 August – 1. 45pm
Top of the League and they really made their superiority count. It would not be fitting to dwell too much on the score as the death throes of our venture into the top division come to a dispiriting end. Suffice it to say we lost with dignity! Next year we will be in the lower division and our sojourn into higher echelons is over, for now. Only two more games to go.
Next match – Away – Bakewell – 3 September – 1.45pm.
