Friends v BE 30-8-18

Friends v Bowls England Select

Following the Friend’s AGM on Thursday 30th August – this year held in The Irish Club for the first time – we all moved across to the hallowed greens.

With the weather warm and sunny, everyone looked forward to their game. Greens C and D were allocated for the event, and we played on 11 of the rinks. There was great camaraderie on the green, with of course both sides wanting the victory.  All too soon, we were packing bowls away and making our way to The Irish Club for a good meal, and a good gossip.

As The Friends were the ‘away team’ this year, BE President Bill Smith presided over the occasion as host; the Irish Club were thanked for their hospitality and concurred by Geoff Hunt in his response as the Friends’ Captain of the day. Having kept us all in suspense, Geoff disclosed the scores – victory went to The Friends 211-185. A magnificent day.
