Friends v. Stevenage Town BC

By | August 2, 2019

Stevenage Pre-match Line-up: of course it won’t rain!

Wednesday 31st July,  the Friends arrived at Stevenage Town BC on a very overcast day to celebrate the clubhouse being recently re cladded – and very fine it looked as well.

We were met by the Club President Graham Morris and Captain Keith Greenough and several of the club members who provided us with a light lunch.

Battle commenced at 1.30 all six rinks were poised and ready to go, keeping a watchful eye on the weather. We shouldn’t have worried as it stayed dry and reasonably warm for the whole afternoon.  The was much banter and laughter on the green. The game ended with a win for the Friends.

The rink of Barbara Carter, Alan Parish, Jenny Ralph and the match officer John Thompson took the highest winning rink honours for the Friends, with Eddie Cooper, Alan North, Will Taylor and President Graham Morris for Stevenage Town Bowls Club.   The final score was 125 – 111 winning on 5 rinks. What a great days bowling.

The club was thanked for all their hospitality and a wonderful day of bowls
