Horsham Bowling Club started off their week in much the same way as they finished last week! Playing the visiting team Goring Manor over four mixed rinks on Monday, they managed a full sweep, with a total score of 86-60. Top rink comprised Anna Bishop, Mike Pearson, Pauline McCartney and skip Robbie Calder, with a score of 24-13.
Tuesday saw the home leg of the Centenary Bowl, played against Marine Gardens, Worthing. This was a really great game for Horsham, winning on 5 out of 6 rinks, scoring 117-99. Top rink contained Norman Porter, Dave Gosling, Barbara Meyer and skip Dave Stearn, with a score of 27-12. But they have to remember that the second leg is away in Worthing in just three week’s time! But they are taking 18 points with them.
Another home match on Wednesday, this time against Dorking, over 4 triples. Once again Horsham proved triumphant, winning on all rinks, with a top rink of Peter Wren, Mike Pearson and skip Ali Hilton-Childs with a super score of 27-8.
In the evening, Horsham ladies won the Nellie Mercer leg on both rinks against Haywards Heath, taking a full 6 points.
Horsham men beat Southwick in the Abergavenny trophy, progressing to the quarter final, probably against Chichester next week!
Friday saw the very popular contest against the Banks Bowling Association, held over six full mixed rinks. This is a friendly touring team that travels throughout SE England. Another win for Horsham, with a score of 116-102. There were two top rinks. Firstly, Peter Wren, Mike Case, Irene Gettins and skip Dave Stearn, 25-16, and also Helen Stepney, Bob Devine, Jim Davis and skip Dave Marden scoring 24-15.
This has been a really great week for Horsham Bowling Club, winning all their matches, but they have been at home! Let’s hope the sun keeps shining!
