Mer­row fall short in nail­bit­ing finale

Surrey Advertiser - - Front Page - Other re­sult:

MER­ROW met Al­bury in the fi­nal of the Harding Cup at Put­ten­ham and Wan­bor­ough BC.

The vil­lage com­pe­ti­tion re­quires each en­trant to field two triples teams, in­clud­ing at least one fe­male bowler.

The fi­nal was played on a fast green with lit­tle op­por­tu­nity for bowls to turn.

Sev­eral mem­bers turned up to sup­port Mer­row and they were re­warded with a thrilling match.

With one end to play on one of the two rinks, Mer­row needed three points to win, or two to draw and force a play-off.

But a Mer­row team of Deb­bie and David Ewins, David Matthews, Judy and Bob Carey and Tony Cekys could only make one point, mean­ing Al­bury won by the same mar­gin. Mer­row 70 Shere 30 Rink 1: M Hosk­ing, D Rai­son and C Mitchell beat G Smith, C Ken­sit and R Ether­ing­ton 17-11. Rink 2: J Carey, A Mead and D Ewins beat J Cross, D Burge and E Kirk 24-14. Rink 3: J Mead, K Bur­burry and B Carey beat M Jones, J Parker and J Dur­rant 29-5.
