Chardstock suffer early season defeats
PUBLISHED: 09:46 02 May 2018
Like most local clubs, the start to the season for Chardstock bowlers has been disrupted by the weather, resulting in a number of cancelled matches, writes Vaughan Fletcher.
In the past two weeks our club has only managed three matches and two of those required players to don multiple layers of warm clothing.
Let’s hope that the situation improves over the next couple of weeks.
There have been three matches played, starting with the Chardstock men, who went down 82-70 on their visit to Yeovil. The one winning rink for Chardstock was the one of K Wakelin, J Marks, G Bodily and John Porter, who won 25-12. There was a two shot loss for the rink of V Fletcher, J Pratt, S Hatcliffe and J Rolph, who went down 20-18 and defeats for M Copp, B Howard, T Dredge and N Denslow (23-16) and the rink of N Barron, J Keats, A Dredge and M Toms, who went down 27-11.
Chardstock ladies were beaten 44-28 at Yeovil ladies with defeats on all three rinks. P Baldwin, R Pratt and A Sebright were narrowly beaten 12-11, M Jenkins, J Porter and E Rolph went down 13-10 and A Taylor, P Waddington and G Campbell lost 19-7.
A visit to Feniton saw Chardstock beaten 86-51, but there was an 18-11 rink success for Jeanette Porter, N Mugridge, Adam Dredge and T Dredge. However, the other three rinks all lost with G Campbell, N Barron, E Rolph and J Porter, beaten 28-12; V Barron, D Hatcliffe, S Hatcliffe and J Rolph, went down 23-12 and M Copp, A Sebright, Ann Dredge and S Jeffery, lost 24-9.
