Daventry V Kingsthorpe

It was good to get back to play in a friendly bowls game against another club. The recent games were both against Kingsthorpe at home and away, it would appear that we still need a lot of practise as we lost both games. The away game was only lost by a few shots, so thinking we would do better at home, my high hopes came tumbling down. After 10 ends we just had the lead, then we stopped for tea and cake and the game changed as it always does after refreshment. Regrettably we lost! There are no more matches until the start of the new season, so let’s get plenty of practise before then. Looking forward to seeing you all October.

The Daventry Ladies had an enjoyable afternoon playing against a very strong Northampton team and as a result lost by 17 shots.

Daventry gave a good account of themselves against strong opposition from the other Northamptonshire Clubs. Success came from the team skipped by Mick Worthington and a noteable draw from the team skipped by Michael Moulton. 3 of the other rinks were in contention for periods of their games but were unable to get over the line.

Tipler Rose Daventry v Kettering

Daventry team reach County Final

The Daventry Over 60 team, skipped by Mick Worthington, reached the County Final of the Tipler Rose Bowl competition with a comprehensive 29-14 win over a strong Kettering squad skipped by Allen Simms.

The Daventry team started well and led 10-3 after five ends. They scored five shots on both the seventh and eighth ends and effectively killed off the game as a contest. They led 22-6 after ten ends and, although Kettering scored four shots on the thirteenth end, the Daventry squad immediately replied with four on the fourteenth end to lead 25-11. Kettering scored a total of three shots on ends fifteen and sixteen but at that stage conceded the match.

The Daventry team will play a Northampton team in the County Final which will be in Daventry this year over the weekend of 20-22 March.

Rink 1: Tony Dicks, John Worthington, Patrick Clerkin and Mick Worthington [29] A Simms [14]
