PARWICH CROWN GREEN BOWLS CLUB
Having got off to a reasonable start this season and getting to grips with the new go faster equipment, we were all looking forward to the second week on the green. Shame a couple of wheels fell off.
April 18 – Away – Matlock Golf Club.
Why is it that against certain Clubs you can really struggle and others seem to suit? Unfortunately the Golf Club are, for us, the struggling variety. Although we won two of the four games and only missed winning a third by one point, the remaining game was a real choker for our pair. Sometimes what ever you try comes off sometimes not, it happens. The result was a win for the Golf Club 72 – 63. We will have to try and get our revenge later in the year.
Next Match – Whitworth Park – Home – 25 April 6.30pm.
April 20 – Home – Youlgrave.
At least we were able to play Youlgrave on our green first. Their green as you may recall has an elephant buried underneath it. So we had what may be described as a more level playing field by having the match here. Having said that a crown green bowls green by it’s very name ain’t level. Anyway we won one of the doubles games, with Edith and Sue doing us proud. Unfortunately we came second in the other two games and trailed by 38 – 54.
In the six singles games we won 5 out of the 6 games. Dawn A, bringing the power of the new ‘Blue Meany’ bowls to bear, had a handsome 15 – 8 win, matched by Edith and John H. Top of the tree however was Tony A who won 15 – 5. The singles score finished 83 – 56 to Parwich. The overall result was Parwich 121, Youlgrave 110.
Next match – Away – Baslow – 27 April – 1.45pm.
We are also having another Club match on Saturday 22 April – a mixed doubles – come down to Parsons Croft around 2.30pm to have a look. (and a cup of tea if you fancy it)
