Promenade triumph in local derby

CLEVEDON Promenade entertained Clevedon in the Deverill Black Over-60s Triples match.

CLEVEDON Promenade entertained Clevedon in the Deverill Black Over-60s Triples match.

The long standing rivalry between the clubs is light hearted, good natured and very verbal. This match was no exception, especially as the Williams brothers, Harry and Ray, were playing, one for each club. It is a shame they were not drawn to play directly against each other on the same rink but, fortunately for sibling rivalry, each of their rinks won.

The game was fairly evenly matched in the early stages with Clevedon Prom taking the lead on three rinks, Clevedon on two and the sixth rink being neck and neck.

Clevedon Prom fought hard and managed to pull ahead and hold on to win four rinks out of six, the final score being a Nelson to the Prom (111) and 80 to Clevedon.

The re-match will take place on August 20 at Chapel Hill when the rivalry and banter will continue.

Clevedon Prom 111, (4 points), Clevedon 80 (2) K Faithfull, G Robinson, R Soper 11-15; E Nash-Clark, J Parish, R Wood 17-12; K White, P Bissett, T Deakin 9-15; P Packer, R Cranshaw, D Knowles 28-13; A Symes, K Low, H Williams 25-9; T Passey, B Rogers, J Bartlett 21-16.
