Match Reports 2019

Thursday 25th April

We were afforded a warm welcome by Chipping Norton which was just as well as the playing conditions were best described as Arctic! We won on two rinks, drew on one and lost one but did run out winners 59 - 51.

Bill Dowling, Erica Brown and Malcolm Brown went down 10 - 18.

Trevor Stevens, Dave Drinkwater and Joe Wright drew 17 - 17

Steve Goodenough, Dave Allington and Bryan Ogilvie managed a 13 - 10 victory.

Yvonne Twomey, George Sainsbury and Chris Twomey pulled out a magnificient 19 - 6 victory due in no small part to their lead player being on good form so early in the season - will it last?

 


Tuesday 23rd April

Our first evening match was away to Kidlington where we suffered a  65 - 81 defeat.

On the bright side we had one winning rink, that of Peter Wells, Dave Drinkwater, John Harmon and Brian Ogilvie who didn't score until the seventh end but kept their foot on the gas eventually running out winners 27 - 15.

Steve Goodenough, Peter Miller, Trevor Stevens and Chris Holmes lost 13 - 19.

Bill Dowling, John Holt, Erica Brown and George Sainsbury trailed 15 - 25,

and  finally,

Yvonne Twomey, Roy Dickson, Graham Tyrrell and Chris Twomey were up against stiff opposition and limped home 10 - 22.

 


Saturday 20th April

Our first outdoor game of the season ended with a convincing win against Little Compton by 94 shots to 63, with 3 of the 4 rinks victorious, our President decided to take sympathy with the opposition by losing 9 shots over the last 4 ends - I think this may have been because Steve Goodenough had to sit out the game after 1 end as he was not feeling well which meant that Mick had to play with 3 players against the hosts 4 - well that was Mick's excuse anyway!.  Results are as follows:

 

  • Rink 1 -  Adderbury 23 - Little Compton 13
  • Lead - Terry Mold, No. 2 - Dave Drinkwater, No. 3 - John Herman, Skip - Bryan Ogilvie
  • Rink 2 -  Adderbury 24 - Little Compton 11
  • Lead - Yvonne Twomey,  No. 2 - Bill Dowling,  No. 3 - Trevor Stevens,  Skip - Chris Twomey
  • Rink 3 -  Adderbury 27 - Little Compton 15
  • Lead - Roy Dickson,  No. 2 - Graham Tyrrell,  No. 3 - Paul Jelfs,  Skip - Tom Clark
  • Rink 4 -  Adderbury 20 - Little Compton 24 
  • Lead - Dennis Roberts,  No. 2 - Steve Goodenough (withdrew after 1 end),  No. 3 - Phil French, Skip - Mick Jelfs
