GREAT START FOR SKIPPER EVANS
DEREK Evans managed both a rink win and an overall 88-71 victory in his first game as Gerrards Cross Bowls Club’s new skipper.
With a bitterly cold wind and a slow green at Burnham, quality bowling was a challenge, but all five triples were well contested, with Heather Newton, playing in her first match for the club, beaten by just one shot.
But the highest winning rink was that of Denis Ward, Janice Welsh and Duncan Gauld, who took six shots on the last end to pip Hugh Russell’s triple to the prize.
Meanwhile, the club will be holding an open day at Maltman’s Lane on Saturday May 14, between 10am and 4pm, when people of all ages can go and give the game a try.
