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.
