Match Report: B&D League Redland v Weston Bath (a)

LOST: 29-68 0 points

We’ve been keeping the fat lady from singing over the last few weeks, but I’m afraid she’s on the stage, our campaign to stay in division 1 may be over, not mathematicaly certain perhaps, but I think we have to prepare for division 2 bowls next year.

Ok, so circumstances of the league arrangements (3 relegated this year) have conspired against us, in truth we haven’t bowled well enough in the league this season.

Onto the game:

On a very fast surface, we started badly and were in fact 22 down at 4 ends, perhaps then getting to grips with the conditions, we rallied slightly to be only 7 behind 4 ends later, and could we┬ánow push on?, but out of the remaining 27 ends across the board we only won 5 – not really good enough.

On Gerry’s rink with Calvin, Vince and Kev 13-19

On Jim’s rink with Steve, Trev and Keith 8-24

On RKJ’s rink with Will, Nigel and Larry 8-25

Apologies for slightly downbeat report, but no point fooling ourselves, however we’ve had good cup runs, and individual successes, this season, so clearly we can bowl well and no reason not to face next year with a positive attitude.
