The men played their first game, an Evening Triples game on Monday evening at home to Ogmore Vale, and lost overall by just one shot.
This was despite an excellent rink win by John Jones, Bryan Hole (who was outstanding) and Norman Wilkinson (skip) - they won 29-7. Match score: Cowbridge 70, Ogmore Vale 71.
In their midweek Munro Cup game Cowbridge were away to Dinas Powis. This is always a difficult place in which to pick up away points but Colin Wilson’s rink with support from Gerrry Lloyd, Ron Dobie and Ken Payne did just that with a 19-16 win.
We lost on the other three rinks. Match score: Cowbridge 44, Dinas Powis 78.
Making their first visit to Cowbridge last Saturday for a league game were 16 players from Blaenrhondda.
On three of the rinks at half-time Blaenrhodda were leading. One rink skipped by Roger Barwick went into a good lead.
After 21 ends Cowbridge had won on three of the rinks and gained 12 valuable points.
Rink scores: Mansel Davey. Ken Payne, Guy Morton and Clive Pritchard 17-15; Gerry Lloyd, John Collin, Peter Launder and Norman Wilkinson 21-14; Tom Purnell, Bryan Hole, Colin Wilson and Dennis Snelling 15-19; Terry Dunsworth, John Jones, Brian Kent and Roger Barwick 53-5 (score of 53 included a hot shot on the 11th end). Match score: Cowbridge 106, Blaenrhondda 53.
Finally, Cowbridge will always need new players and if, as readers, you are thinking of trying the game some time why not call in for a chat on a Friday evening between 6pm-8pm. Ask for Mike Bradley; you will find the green behind the Leisure Centre.
