St Andrews enjoyed a busy week to start off their indoor bowling season.
A NEW indoor season is now underway at St Andrews and with it a busy competitive first week of bowls.
Apart from friendly games, the club has played double rinks, Top Club, Denny Cup, and Egham Trophy all start in the first couple of weeks.
The first game in the Weston Mixed League went Saints’ way. Last season’s champions started with a win over Woodspring.
The double rink against Taunton Vivary was one of mixed fortunes. The home rink won by 14 shots, but lost out on the game as the away team went down by 26.
The mixed Top Club was played against Donyatt. The fours and triples were played in the morning and Don Bailey skipped the fours to a 21 shot victory. Andy Owens skipped the triples to a 14 shot victory, leaving St Andrews only needing two more points for victory in the afternoon’s two singles games and the mixed pairs.
Jackie Ware won her two-wood singles for the two points needed, but George Guest lost by one shot in the two-wood singles. Barrie Forse’s pairs was conceded as the game was won.
