On Sunday night our ladies top club team took on Burnham in the area final of the Bowls England National Top Club Competition. This was a rematch of last year’s final and our ladies were definitely after revenge.

The singles saw Donna Brookes take on Kay Dilkes. Donna took an early 8-3 lead before Dilkes picked up two 2s to bring the score back to 8-7. Donna increased her lead to 14-9 before dropping 2 on the 16th end to make the score 14-9. Donna then showed her class by picking up the remaining 7 shots she needed in the next 5 ends to run out victorious 21-12.

Town 1-0

The pair of Cheryl Auburn and Lesley Throup took on county singles champion Julie Skelly and England legend Mary Price. The Town duo started well to build up a 12-6 lead at 11 ends they continued to increase their lead and by the 16th end the score was 18-8 they were never in danger of letting this lead slip and recorded the 2nd point for the town winning 21-12

We then picked up a 1 to take a 4 shot lead with 2 ends to go, hoping this was enough to pick up the third point of the evening “The Bunce” had different ideas and picked up a 3 and a 2 to win the triples 16-15
