A good result was achieved for the “A” team on Thursday night playing at home against North Wilts “B”. After a shaky start on all rinks the team staged a great comeback right across the board.
We struggled for the first 11 ends with Don Tucker, Geoff Woollan and Mike Mitcham down by 9 shots at the 12th end and it did not look as though we could recover, however, Don in particular really found the lines and this seemed to inspire the team as a whole and we came good to take the lead on the 17th end by one shot then taking 4 on the last end finishing 23 – 18.
All other rinks fought very hard with very close games until the end and all succeeded to record a win.
Alan Sims, Dave Russell, Duncan Poole 21 – 17.
Stan Rutherford, Chris Holt, Chris Merrifield 23 – 11.
Peter Diwell, Barry Howard, Colin Smith 19 – 13.
Total shots 86 – 59 making it a 14 – 0 win.
Mike Mitcham (Team Captain)
