Honiton bowls ladies’ four to play in Group Final

The last week was another quiet week for the Honiton Bowls Club with just two friendly matches played, writes Tony Broughton.

The first was a Ladies game away to the Axminster Club with all three rinks winning, the final score being 65-45.

Honiton’s top rink was Ann Brown, Joan Mackintosh, Anne Newman and Julie Grant at 24-13.

The second game was away to the Exonia Club with only one rink winning out of three the match was lost overall.

The winning rink honours went to Tony Williams, Myra Singleton, Harry Riley and Anne Newman at 27-20. It’s nice to see that once again new members are featuring in the winning rinks.

There was a rather shock result in the National Fours Competition when two Honiton rinks had to play off for a place in our Group Finals.

Ann Brown, Marian Vessey, Carol Smith and Julie Grant were matched against Yvonne Rayner, Joan Heard, Carole Binmore and Sue Evans.

Julie’s team could do no wrong and found themselves 21-4 up at one time, but finally the penny dropped for Sue’s team and they allowed the opposition to score only two more shots, but this bird had flown the coup, and she finished up two shots down to Julie at 23-21.

We wish Julie’s team the very best of luck in the Group Finals.
