The week started with another cold morning, causing problems for those of us who wear glasses, to steam up because of our masks!! The new rules about checking/scanning Covid certificates & I. D.s also adding to the pre-match jobs to be done through fogged up glasses.
Monday 17th South Alicante League: Enterprise Div. Klingons, were at home to Emerald Isle Titans. As expected it was hard fought match & a close measure for a draw didn’t quite make it, so in the end we only had one winning team: Giuseppe Galelli, June & Keith Jones 17-14. Points 2-8, shots 51-93.
Discovery Div. Trekkers journeyed down to play Country Bowls Flamingos but unfortunately came away empty handed: points 0-10, shots 46-99.
Wednesday 19th saw our Winter League team making the long trip up to Javea Green. It was lovely to see our northern friends; although we knew the match would be tough. We hoped for better but came away with 4 points-6, shots close 66-70.
Well done to our winners: Jane Hamill, Dee Hoey, June & Keith Jones 20-18, Ralph Jones, Bill Webb, Pam Lockett, Scott Malden 23-10.
Southern League Div A. Friday 21st Lions away v La Marina Sharks & another chilly 6ºc start with the inevitable heavy “layered” look, woolly hat & gloves, numb fingers and cold feet making playing rather less enjoyable.
There were some very close games unfortunately some of us weren’t quite so close; finishing 4points-6, 53 shots -71.Well done to our winners: Tricia Riley, Vic Mahomet, Pat Riley 16-15, Giuseppe Galelli, Bill Webb, Scott Malden 17-12.
Div B. Tigers were at home to Emerald Isle Outlaws and had a good result with useful points; 6-4, shots 70-59. Winners: John Bagnall, Sue Ross, Lyndon Johnson 23-14, Pauline Johnson, Cas Blay, Barry Edwards 28-7.
