Long Sutton Seniors won an exciting bowl match at Enmore against Weston on Friday by 3 matches to 2.
On more than one occasion (too often for me!) we were down in at least four matches.
Our lead off team of John Parkinson and Mike Poole were the only pairing to receive shots and after an exciting match came in winners by 2 and1. This was also the first time they had played together in this format , well done!
Second out were the trusted pairing of Rich Bartin and Phil Lock who , after an early scare , secured a 5 and 4 win , brilliant !
This was the first result in as all the others were still playing.
Next out were George Ceely and John Williams who were giving 7 shots to the opposition. They were 3 down after 3 , then went 4 down.
However they clawed their way back to just 1 down but eventually lost 2 and 1.
Next out were Martin Hawkins and Phil Bowditch (again giving 7 shots ) who had a very tight match before securing a 3 and1 victory.
This was crucial as the last match out had already been lost.
Steve Southgate and Norman Banfield were up against a pair who used the 7 shots they received very well
and inflicted a 5 and 4 defeat on them.
Well played all. Our next opponents are Farrington. Venue not yet known.
