Tuesday 21st at home to Banbury Borough

This was the first leg of the recently formed mini competition between the two clubs for the Burma Star Trophy with the second leg due to be played on 28th August. It was a "damp" evening to say the least and we managed 16 ends as evening drew in pretty quickly and Adderbury won three rinks with one drawn with a double point victory 78 - 39,
Rink 1
Steve Clarke, Norman Oakey, Kevin Mytton and Mark Stokes picked up 9 ends and despite the opposition getting two threes towards the end still came away with a win 14 - 11.
Rink 2
Yvonne Twomey, Jamie Cox, Peter Wells and Chris Twomey won 11 ends and were well in charge to run out winners 23 -6.
Rink 3
Tony Bird, Mick Wilkins, Nigel Eley and Bryan Ogilvie also took 11 ends and were never troubled and handed in an impressive card showing a 25 - 6 victory.
Rink 4
David Drinkwater, Cliff Hall, Peter Griffin and Chris Skidmore managed 7 ends but a couple of fours saw them draw the game 16 all.
We look forward to the return leg when I feel sure The Borough will be looking for revenge.
Sorry to end on a sad note but Angus McKay passed away on Monday at the age of 93. He had been a member of the Club for some time but obviously hadn't played much in recent years and won the Riddell Cup in 1998.
