Fan­cied Kid­welly given a wake-up call de­spite win

Llanelli Star - - ATHLETICS AND BOWLS -

THERE were no real sur­prises in the Car­ruthers Shield last week­end, although some clubs would prob­a­bly agree that they need to im­prove their per­for­mance if they wish to progress in this com­pe­ti­tion.

Sec­tion 1 lead­ers Llan­gen­nech & Bryn played short-handed against Parc Wil­liam and came away with a nar­row vic­tory. They will face last year’s sec­tion qual­i­fiers Car­marthen at home in two weeks’ time.

Car­marthen opened with a big win against Tum­ble and now face two away matches at Parc Wil­liam and Llan­gen­nech, need­ing to win both matches on dif­fi­cult sur­faces.

Dafen Wel­fare top Sec­tion 2 af­ter a visit to Cross Hands and now face their most dif­fi­cult match at Am­man­ford Park this week­end. Have­lock re­cov­ered from last week’s loss at Dafen to beat Ty­bie at Llandy­bie, giv­ing them an out­side chance if they win their re­main­ing games.

Sec­tions 3, 4 and 5 all pro­duced very tight matches. Pon­tard­du­lais opened their ac­count with a four-shot win at Blue An­chor, Gor­seinon over­came Llanelli by seven shots and Parc y Dre’s visit to Burry Port saw them win by just four shots.

Favourites Kid­welly Town did not have ev­ery­thing their own way in their open­ing game in Sec­tion 6 at home to Ty’rfran. Com­ing away with a 23-shot win, but fail­ing to win on all rinks, will have been a lit­tle wake-up call to the league cham­pi­ons.

In the Llanelli & Dis­trict Bowl­ing League, there were just two matches. In the Pre­mier di­vi­sion Graig Merthyr hosted Loughor with the vis­i­tors tak­ing a two-shot vic­tory and 11 of the 14 avail­able points.

The di­vi­sion two match be­tween Am­man­ford Town and Cw­ma­man saw an em­phatic win for the home team
