Buckinghamshire Short Mat Bowling Association

Bucks v Oxfordshire Saturday 3rd November 2018


On Saturday 3rd November, Bucks travelled to Oxford, where we were made to feel very welcome.


The match started promptly and Bucks very soon found the weight of the mats which were running quite true.


David Gander won his first singles game and Paul Knight held out for a draw. Barry Somers and Arnie Jaffe, played a cracking game for a 17-6 win with Ann and Bob Hine also winning their opening game.


The triple of Brenda Gander, Peter and Linda Coker, won their game as did Joan Northcott, Irene Roberts and Brian Latham.


That only left the fours to play and they did not disappoint. Rosie Millard, Geoff Ames, Chris Millard and Malcolm Tingle won their game and Rosemary Followell, Peter Clarke, Kevin Dwyer and John Thompson won theirs.


15 points to finish the first session. Bucks were on a roll !!


The second half continued in similar fashion with David and Paul both winning their singles and Ann and Bob winning their second pairs game.


Both the triples and the fours continued the success story and won all the rest of the games.


The final score: Bucks 221 shots and 37 points, Oxford 138 shots and 3 points. However, the scoreline doesn’t do justice to the quality of the bowls. Oxford played extremely well, and Bucks had to fight for every point. So well done to both teams and we look forward to meeting up again on  Sunday 2nd December at Handy Cross.
