County Mixed Double Rink

Today, Sunday 22nd July, Devizes played a home and away mixed double rink against Salisbury Bowls Club. The home rink was skipped by Bev Lilley with Marguerite Alexander three, Dave Greenwood two and Les Griffin as lead whilst the away foursome was skipped by Peter Fielding with Sheila Garlick three, Dave Keen two and Marie Greenwood as lead.

The match was very even at home for the first few ends then Devizes took a lead and remained in front for the whole game often thanks to some magnificent bowling by ladies captain Bev eventually winning 22-12.

Meanwhile at Salisbury Devizes were winning easily at firstĀ  then had a lean spell in the middle enabling Salisbury back into the game coming within two shots of catching up, Devizes then managed to seal the game by scoring a six almost at the end of the match.

The final score at Salisbury was 27-17 making an overall win of 49-29 taking Devizes into the semi-finals against either Highworth or Chippenham Town..
