17th September vs Rosedale Park  ( T.C.L. Final )

The T.C.L. Final, versus Rosedale Park,was played on Sunday 17th September at Fassnidge. 

Despite a sunny start, within a very short space of time we had to put on our waterproofs !

As the game progressed we fell further behind and, at one point, we were 35 shots behind, things were not looking good. Although Dave Pryce was 6-19 down, Barry Simmonds was 4-18 down and Bob Broad was 4-12 down, Ray Birch was managing to keep in front, Barry Sharp was battling hard to stay in touch.

Throughout the game we used all our fighting spirit and resolved to come back with vengeance-it certainly paid off . Dave won 25-20, Barry Sharp won 21-15, Bob Lost 17-20, and Barry Simmonds lost 13-22. Final shots score was 94-92 to H.W.B.C. League points 8-4 to us.

I have to admit that I felt a bit sorry for Rosedale Park as they were probably the strongest team we played in the competition.

Finally, I would just like to say that I am very proud to be Captain of such a fine team of players who persevere and never give up. And that also includes everyone who played in all the other games, because without them we may not have reached the Final.

6th September vs Court Park

Somehow this feels as if the team was ambushed. We travelled to Hillingdon in high hopes of a victorious afternoon but encounter the full force of a very strong team. Our opponents numbered amongst their ranks County players, competition Champions , league winners, etc. As a result we lost heavily by 41 shots-61-102.There are defeats on 4 rinks and we drew on one. Bob Broad, Paul Denham and Royston Mobbs managed an honourable tie. An afternoon to forget ?. No! Pleasant company, a good green and refreshing cups of tea made this an enjoyable experience. ( I wonder who has had experience as a spin doctor) .

29 July vs Maidenhead Town B.C.

Prior to this match confusion reigned; orginally we were due to play 6 rinks but our numbers dictated 4 rinks, they had planned for 6 triples-we ended up playing with 4 rinks. Our fixture book showed a 2.30pm start while they expected to play at 2.00 pm we played at 2.00pm.

It wasn't raining when we started but after 6 ends it started and by 10 ends it was fairly heavy. After tea rain fell steadily and it got harder as we went on, so that by 18 ends it was decided to finish the match. At that point we had won by 17 shots- 71-54, winning 2 rinks, drawing on 1 and losing on 1. H.W.R. Rita Wetherell, Paul Derham, Norman Dale, Barry Simmonds.

25 June vs Chesham B.C.

this was the return fixture, following our 15 shot victory in the first leg of the competition for the Chesham Cup.

The afternoon resulted in a 16 shot victory 109-93, so the overall result meant that we retained the cup by a 29 shot margin. Our H.W.R. was Bob Broad, Kevin Murphy, Brian Bristow and Dorothy Benn. this was Karen and David Newton's first match-welcome to the team-and we were pleased to see Alan Smith among our numbers.

We were supposed to host Desborough on Sunday 18th June in the return fixture for the Dessau cup, this is contested by both clubs on a home and away basis.We had beaten Desborough on their green by 43 shots so we werelooking forward to consolidating this lead and taking back the cup, which they had won last year.Unfortunately they could not raise a team, which is surprising considering their membership is 4 times our own. We wonder if they might have been more prepared to send a team it they are leading, We take playing for this trophy very seriously, a view obviously not shared by Desborough.

10 May vs Wargrave C.& T. league

I am afraid that,becauseof the leagues rules-one rink did not include a lady player-I need to rewrite the match report. "Due to an error, one of our rinks did not comply with the league rules in that it did not include a lady player. As a result, we have to forfeit the 4 match points and the 2 game points on the offending rink.The final points tally is.therefore HWBC4 Wargrave 6.While a friendly rink did not comply either, this has no bearing on the competitive element of the match.Dorothy and Rita came down expecting a relaxing evening watching the match but ended up providing an excellent supper from scratch, with support from Nancy. Well done ladies !! We also had an interesting report on Jean Williams'driving skills.
