We are about to begin the South Alicante Summer League season on 7th  but there is still the matter of the Winter League to complete, with 2 matches this week. Wednesday 29th Winter League home to Javea Green; there was some excellent bowling in a really close fought game. Ultimately we managed to win 2 rinks and hung on to win the overall shots 77-76 for 6 points -6. Winners: Lynne Morris, Jo Pering, June & Keith Jones 17-15, Irene Everett, Vic Slater, Peter McEneany, Tom Hill 21-9.

The Berleen team of Margaret Morrison, Pam Lockett, Charlie Marigold, Barry Edwards had a great win 25-11. The second Winter League match of the week on Friday 31st was home against our near neighbours; La Siesta. After a cloudy start it turned out to be a good morning all round; warm, sunny and a great result 10pts-2, shots 95-62.

Winners: Lynne Morris, Jo Pering, June & Keith Jones 18-9, Shirley Verity, Ray Clarke, Jules Pering, Russell Marks 19-16, Ann Holland, Keith Phillips, Sabrina Marks, Mal Hughes 29-7, Kath Reid, Sheila Cammack, Neil Morrison, Scott Malden 22-8. No Berleen team match. With 2 matches to go, this result has kept us in 1st place, on equal points with Vistabella but ahead on shot difference, so the fight is still on!

Two Winter League matches this week and two different results especially for the two Barry’s. On Wednesday we travelled up the motorway to Finca Guila where some of us met old friends and some made new ones. We won by three rinks to two with Colin Armitage, Mike Stone, Mo Kidd and Lynn Armitage winning 17-14.  Then there were the Hadaways who both won. Shirley’s four were the winners by 28-14 and she was helped by Phil Pape, Alex Whyte and Ann Stone while the girls once again carried their Captain and leader Dave to the fine score of 25-8. So well done Jean Perchard, Barbara Forshaw and Janet Parsons. Now come the two Barry’s both claiming they won the extra two points on the last end to give us the overall shots and an 8-4 win.  Both rinks got “stuffed “ but Barry Sadler, Peter Parsons, Mike Smith and Margaret Sadler claim their three shots on the last end won it while Barry Latham, Terry Perchard, Wendy Latham and Carol Smith say that cutting down the three against to one on their last end was the winner. As I am writing this you might guess we did it.   

So on to Friday when the League Leaders Vistabella came, we were hoping to do the same to them as we did to Quesada but it was not to be. They won on three rinks plus the overall shots but by only eight.  They won 8-4.  The shining lights were the two Barry’s and, of course, their fellow bowlers.   Barry Sadler, Peter Parsons, Margaret Sadler and Mo Taylor won 21-19 and the Scribe won 17-8 with help from Dave Taylor who had a great game plus Wendy Latham and Kathy Manning.    Another little argument was did the number of wrong biases mess our shot difference up. Unfortunately nobody wanted to tell me who the miscreants were.  

Once again the Berleen lead by Alex Whyte with Jim Freeman, Angie Butler and Martin Butler had a fine 21-12 win.
