The early form of the season appears to have deserted the Mid-Wilts “B” team of late as the visit to Spencer Melksham on the 6th July and the home match to Trowbridge Town the following week both resulted in a loss.
This game finished with a total score of 64 to Devizes and 74 to Spencers and therefore a points loss of 4 to 10.
Dave Greenwood, Peter Romijn and Ken Curtis playing, were winning on the last end by one shot and were holding two on the last end when Spencers number 2 killed the end and on the re-run the home team won by four shots. Two other rinks were winning comfortably but dropped big numbers on the latter ends
Rink 1. Dave Greenwood, Peter Romijn and Ken Curtis lost 16-19
Rink 2. Monty Smith, Michael Alexander and Will Wrobel lost 15-19
Rink 3. Colin Smith, Phil Coombes and Patrick Chapman won 21-15
Rink 4. John Scoffield, Bernard Fox and Steve Brown won 22-11
The following week at home was a close fought match with each team being in the lead at differing times in the game but the home team faltered at the end and Trowbridge came out on top.
Rink 1. Dave Greenwood, Simon Northway and Ken Curtis lost 14-17
Rink 2. Terry Miles, Michael Alexander and Will Wrobel won 20-17
Rink 3. Colin Smith, Phil Coombes and Patrick Chapman lost 15-22
Rink 4. John Scoffield, Bernard Fox and Steve Brown won 16-15
Final score 66-71
