Devizes “A” Compete In Wilson Cup

Teams from The Mid-Wilts league can enter into the annual knockout competition known as the Wilson Cup.
On Saturday 15th July the Devizes “A” team of Dave Reeves, Ken Surman and Tom Mullins played against Chippenham Town’s “B” team.
Devizes trailed throughout the game and were 10-14 down on 17th end then picked up a four on the last end to force the game into a sudden death play off. This end went back and forth with the jack being moved on several occasions but unfortunately Chippenham Town forced a win by just two shots.
Result: Devizes 14 Chippenham Town 16
So near yet so far
Well done all
