Week commencing 26 April 2010.
It is not in a bowlers nature to complain! However, we are not having much luck – either on or off the green. We only have the bare minimum of players and quite a few have been, and still are, either ill or suffering from back, knee, and other orthopaedic problems. So please – if you can walk or even crawl, you would be a most welcome addition to the Club. Anyway, enough whinging and excuses; we did not do very well this week!
Tuesday League – Away to Whitworth Park.
Still no wins after four matches. We only won one game to Whitworth’s three. The resulting points tally was 72-55. That puts us about fourth from bottom. The only way is up?
Next match: Home to Matlock Park, 6th May, 6.30 ish. Please come and support us.
Thursday League – Away to Lafarge, Hope.
Although we again did not win, the ride up to Hope and Castleton is worth it. A nice lunch and then a game of bowls can’t really be bad, even if we lose.
At the time of playing the match, believe it or not, we were third in the league. Although not winning, we have had a good aggregate score. Unfortunately this week we lost all three doubles games. We redeemed ourselves a little by winning the singles games 4-2. However the total scores finished up 135-110 to Lafarge.
Next match: Home to Matlock Park, 6th May. 1.30 ish.
We are having our first internal Club competition this Sunday at 2.00 pm.
Again, although it’s a Bank Holiday, we will be on the Green on Monday at around 6.30. Everyone is most welcome.
– John B.
