The hedges have had a first cut in a while. The paddock side will be trimmed later.
On Saturday 10th October the green was put to bed for another year. Using Bowls England guidelines the green was scarified, aerated, fed and wrapped up.
After a resounding loss last year the men were looking to get back to winning ways this year. Sunbury has a very strong women’s section and the men would definitely have to up their game.
A beautiful afternoon saw narrow one point wins for each of the men and women on two of the rinks. The men took another rink by 6 points but crucially the women won on the the last rink by 7 points to take the match overall 60-59.
The men will have to dust themselves off and come out fighting again next year.
We enjoyed a super afternoon at the recent friendly at Woodlands. We somehow managed to win on 2 rinks and lose on 1 but the winner was the weather and the bonhomie. There was also a first for Cassie .. a small drink during the mid-play break!
