Harlington’s great start
HARLINGTON Bowls Club made a positive start to the season after beating Hounslow Conservatives in their opening outdoor mixed friendly match.
The Harlington bowlers survived a late Hounslow fightback in the final rink, having comfortably taken the first two, to record a 47-45 overall victory.
Joan Fulbrook, Brenda Reed and Sheila Cutmore were Harlington’s top-performing triple as they paved the way for victory with a 21-16 triumph in the first rink of the day.
Harlington followed that result with a 50-44 friendly defeat at Richings Park and picked up a 57-53 win over Cowley in their first Chiltern & Thames Valley League tie.
