Cowbridge Bowls Club round-up

By GEM Community Correspondent in Bowls

Another busy week for the ladies playing three matches with mixed fortune.

On Monday evening, May 8, Millwood were the visitors in a two rink league game.

Although drawing on one rink Cowbridge won well on the other rink to ensure a comfortable overall win.

Rink scores: Lin Wallace, Sian Lewis, Lynda Wilson and Shirley Wilkinson 20-6; Diane Purnell, Diane Lloyd, Phyllis Price and Sylvia Hole 13-13. Match score Cowbridge 33, Millwood 19.

Away on grass the next day in a Cowbridge Shield Match at Porthcawl Prince of Wales Curlews, Cowbridge had one successful rink.

Joy Woolford, with support from Mary Dowdle, Diane Radley and Kay Edwards, won 15-8. The other two rinks lost heavily.

Match score Cowbridge 26, Curlews 59.

Away again on Thursday in a league game at Pyle and Kenfig, Cowbridge had one successful rink.

Sue Flower, with support from Diane Purnell, Dorothy Pritchard and Joy Woolford, won 19-14, while the other two rinks lost.

Match score Cowbridge 40, Pyle and Kenfig 51.

The men, for their midweek Munro Cup game, entertained Barry Romilly.

Cowbridge won on two rinks as did Romilly but there was an overall shot difference of 30 in Cowbridge’s favour on account of an excellent rink win of 41 shots to 9 by Norman Wilkinson, with support from Terry Dunsworth, Mick Davey and Bryan Hole.

Match score Cowbridge 86, Barry Romilly 56.

On Saturday, for their second Carruthers Shield game, the men entertained Penarth.

With a number of regular players not available it was going to be an uphill task and although we won on one rink and drew on another, we were well beaten on the other two.

Match score Cowbridge 54, Penarth 91.
