Last Thursday evening, Llantwit Major Bowls A team visited Penarth Bowls Club to play a friendly.
Heavy rain delayed the start of the game, but the weather improved and we were able to play 15 ends.
Rink scores were:?Roy Vowles, Graham Merchant, Arthur Hayes and Eric Sparks 14-13 - the rink scored four shots on the last end, with each player contributing one shot each, which, for those who know the game, is a rare occurrence.
The other winning rink, Geoff Timms, Richard Bayliss, John Ball and John O’Brien won 12-11.
Glyn Fox, Ambrose Horgan, Paul Brown and John Nixon lost 8-14 despite some excellent bowls by Ambrose Horgan.
Lyn Fry, Les Fowler, Mike Jones and Mike Harmon also went down 5-14. As this was a friendly, the result was an ‘honourable draw’.
After the match, we enjoyed Penarth’s hospitality including pies and pasties together with some good draught beer!
We are still short of players, so please put your names down.
