Christmas Day Football

Just one more week to go!! …. Until the most fun you will ever have on a football pitch…..!!

This year will be our 4th Christmas Day football in Parwich (Nethergreen field, not the Cricket Pitch).
This event is always well attended, we like to see young and old, good ability and no ability, everyone is welcome, the more the merrier. Drag your kids along.
Afterwards some of us head to the legion for a pint or two
I expect this year will be one of the best ever and it will definitely be very muddy!!

Note: This is not an official event,… its just a bunch crazy locals having great fun before our Christmas lunch.. There is no Insurance, or first aid provided and everyone plays at their own risk. That said, we have never had any major injuries and we hope to see you there!!

Friday Football now Sunday Football

Time to start your Sunday early. We have changed the children’s football from Friday to Sunday morning.

This change has come about from our work demands, but should also allow us to play on grass for longer, which is far safer.

We will start at 9am and finish around 10am giving you the rest of the day to enjoy the remainder of your weekend.

We hope this change of time will be successful and are looking forward to seeing the children there this weekend!

Reminder that young children should be accompanied by parents, we are always looking for parent helpers, parents should familiarise themselves with our rules.

Thanks

Jason, James & Charles.

Nearly the end of the Season

Parwich Bowls Club Report

Tuesday, lovely evening, great company, green in superb condition and I don’t mean at Parwich as we were away at Chatsworth – well the green is in Edensor really. The only downside was that I discovered too late that chips were in offer in the Cavendish club. No matter, the result was what counted, we won by 81 points (maximum possible 84) to 57. A good win indeed. Only 1 game left in this League next Tuesday at home to Matlock Bath. We should finish in the perfect position, 5th or 6th I guess so no promotion this year.

Thursday afternoon was a different story. We were again 3 players short of a full team meaning that 3 of us had to play twice. Now you might think that this could be an advantage as those who played again should know how the green is performing. Against fellow strugglers Bradwell A, however, it was not the case, Bradwell played very well to win the match 132-117, our captain for the day, Fran, having our best score. Both clubs will be playing in Division 2 next year as we are propping up Division 1 with Bradwell just one place above us. Two games left in this League and whatever the results we will not be able to avoid relegation.

Mad Dogs & Englishmen

Parwich Bowls Club Report

Tuesday evening saw our club at Bakewell in Bath Gardens which I must say are stunning this year. The town should be rightly proud of the flowers there, in fact some of our team chose to spend some of our practice period admiring them rather than getting to grips with the green! It made no difference, however, as we won the match 72-63. We were rather proud of this result because Bakewell’s green is another one-off – a long, thin rectangle with tree roots in one corner! Dawn and Fran did particularly well in an epic game lasting 30 ends.

On Thursday afternoon we were at home to Hazlewood. The weather as you may recall was rather warm! Only mad dogs and Englishmen go out in these conditions. We carried on regardless and having lost the doubles 27-63 knew that there was a lot of hard work ahead in the singles. We almost recouped the difference as we won the singles 81-47 only to lose the match 108-110. Again, a good result against quality opposition. Nevertheless, we remain at the bottom of this division and relegation looks almost a certainty at the end of the year.

Half Way Point

Parwich Bowls Club

Amazingly we are already half way through the bowls season and on Thursday this week we actually experienced our first taste of the summer when we played away at Baslow; a glorious day on a very large green. Our bowling ability though was not quite up to the same standard as the weather, losing all 3 doubles games, however, John and Liz lost by only 1 point, 20-21. Tony, Keith, Dawn and John all won their singles games but the margin was not enough to overcome the doubles results. We lost the match 110-127.

Tuesday evening’s game at Bradwell also resulted in a defeat by 3 games to 1, only Rick and Edith managing a win, the less said about the other games the better – the match score finished 60-81 in Bradwell’s favour.

So at the half way point in the season we lie 3rd from bottom in Division 1 of the Thursday League and in 2nd position in the 2nd Division of the Tuesday League. Not a bad performance considering the limited number of available players.
