Whilst I was outside on Creamery Lane at dusk yesterday evening, waiting for guests to arrive, I saw more hedgehogs on the road than cars! Please keep an eye out for them when driving.

…And there really is no in between…

It’s been a few weeks since a bowls report last appeared on here, which is not to say that activities on the greens have been curtailed in any way. In the Tuesday League we continue to exert pressure on the leaders with some thrilling and absorbing fixtures. Two weeks ago a particularly spirited display saw us win 68-58 away at Bradwell, always good to have a positive result up there. I will remember my own pairing with Tony A. for a long time in this one, we were 20-15 down and two woods to the deficit with just one in the hand to play, but we looked at each other and said “We’re not going to lose this.” We fought back to take the game 21-20! The following week we were triumphant again, this time at home to Bakewell, also by a relatively narrow margin of 79 to 66. Once again a victory felt good as I always consider Bakewell to be a very good team indeed. 

In the Thursday League fortune has not been so kind on us this year; we are yet still to win a game! Subsequent fixtures at Hazelwood, on their beautifully cared for venue that looks as if it were laid out by Capability Brown, and at home to Hope Works, and as pleasant a bunch of people as you’d meet anywhere, we went down to scores of 135-99 and 139-95 respectively. Seemingly it now requires a geeing-up and superhuman effort of epic proportions to pull us out of the relegation zone in the second half of the season and maintain our position in the top flight.

Last week brought defeats in each on the competitions, being away I’m unable to comment on the matches in detail, but we were both up against top of the table sides in each case and away at greens that our team were either playing for the first time or hadn’t visited for years, so maybe there’s some mitigation there.

There will be no match this Tuesday, our charge for glory will be temporarily put on hold. The League Secretary has decided that summer sports should be cancelled because it is now summer. The anticipated match against Whitworth Park will now be played deep into September when evenings are darkening and dew will be frosting on the green.
