Area final success for Saints’ quartet

A St Andrew’s foursome won the area final of the over-60s national fours and are one game away from the national finals.

THE St Andrews four of Ken Uglow, Richard Venn, Don Bailey and Barrie Forse were victors in the area final of the over-60s national fours, beating the might of Don Fowkes and Barrie Smith of Taunton Deane.

They are now one game away from the national finals in Northampton.

The ladies were victorious in the first game of the Yetton Plate, defeating Donyatt by a massive 51 shots. Both home rinks of Jackie Pitman and Jackie Ware had nine shot wins and the away rinks of Ann Campbell and Monica Pattenden had 18 and 15 shot victories.

In the Weston Mixed League, Saints kept up their winning ways with a 17 shot victory over Victoria. At home, Phil Villis had a good 14 shot win, but Terry Thomas went down by four. Rod Smith’s rink won by five shots and Bob Roberts by two.

THE men gained emphatic revenge for their earlier defeat by the ladies in the second grudge match of the winter on Clarence’s indoor rink.

In five triples matches, the men won three and halved one. The ladies’ only winners were Moira Waite, Audrey O’Mara and skip Pauline Burrough, who finished up by three shots.

The men had begun the day with an emphatic 14-0 victory and even the presence of Clarence men’s president Reg (Regina) Flicker, as an honorary lady in the second match, could not stem the tide.

Making their grudge match debuts were two of Clarence’s 16-year-old Broadoak students, Tom Nagy and Rhys Young, who entered into the spirit of things. After this result, there will be all to play for in the third and final match next March.

Scores (ladies first): M Woods, S Phelps, V Jones 0, B Difford, A Bishop, D Jackman 14; S Bishop, R Flicker, J Bishop 1, T Nagy, M Skyrme, R Burrough 11; M Waite, A O’Mara, P Burrough 9, R Young, J O’Mara, C Read 6; L Phipps, L Oldham, C Edlin 4, J Atkins, I Phipps, M Edlin 10; M Moore, B Hayes, P Taylor 5, J Hayes, A Taylor, J Larvin 5.

Although both Clarence home rinks won, two heavy defeats away meant that they lost against Woodspring in the Weston Mixed Indoor League.

Clarence 42.75, Woodspring 72: home – M Waite, T Mannion, E Williams 9.75-8; D Grier, J Atkins, B Adams, M Adams 18-15. Away: G Aldridge, M Woods, G Cooper, G Barlow 11-24; J Keay, J Bishop, M Edlin, V Jones 4-25.
