12:10 10 June 2014

Royston Bowlers, S Lee, L Ramsey, M Coppen and Skip S Brown successfully started the week by winning a County fours quarter-final against Garston 26-19.

G Fisk had equal good fortune in the County Unbadged Singles, beating S Coles convincingly, 21-11. M Gisby won her first two wood County Singles match at Welwyn and District but narrowly lost her second game.

In the Men’s Letchworth and District triples, played at Baldock, B Pepper, R Dean, and S Whitehouse gained 19 shots, while R Davies, T Castle, and P Roseblade earned 18 shots. In a game of two halves, Royston were 18 - 0 up after eight ends but a strategic long jack introduced by Baldock changed the game and the teams were level on the penultimate end. Royston managed to hang on to just one shot on the final end to claim the game.

Easier wins were claimed by R Tremlett and G Williams in the Letchworth and District pairs against S Wilson 28-11 and in the L and D Singles by G Williams, 21-8.
