Well, at least the weather was better last Wednesday, but still a long way short of being an early balmy Summer’s evening! The improvement in the weather was reflected in some much better scoring for some teams and individuals
Leading the way again in terms of individual dolls who hit another 14, that sets him way in front in terms of dolls with a leg average of 4.6 from the first 3 matches! he was joined in double digit scores by 4 of his team mates with Scott Humphries and Leigh Clapton contributing with 11 apiece and Barry Parker and Alex Chamberlain chipping in with 10 each. Condolences to Red Lion meeting Abingdon United in such form!
Elsewhere in the Premier and A section there were double digit scores with Barry Townsend hitting 12 for the Plum Pudding, Mick Jarvis 11 for Steventon Sports, “Jumbo” Mott 11 for the Prince of Wales and Geoff Lee 10 for Berinsfield.
What was also good to see is double digit scores in the B section with Andrew Wood hitting 10 for the Fox Denchworth, Andy Shipman also hitting 10 in Section D for the Harwellian and in Section E, 2 players also hit a very credible 10 dolls each, Steve Fernback for the Fox, Boars Hill and Mel Benfield for the Brewery Tap A both teams newcomers/returners to the league this season.
