Winscombe were edged out by Nailsea in the fifth round of the Wedmore Plate.

WINSCOMBE visited Nailsea again for the fifth round of the Wedmore Plate, having been drawn against them in three knockout trophies.

To date results had been shared with Winscombe winning the Over-60s Cup tie, while Nailsea won the North Somerset Cup match.

After 15 ends, Nailsea led by just one shot across the rinks, but Winscombe did not finish well and although winning on two rinks and losing on two and even winning the extra end, lost the match by 12 shots.

The first leg of the annual tussle with local rivals Banwell for the Parrot Shield was played at Winscombe on a very fast green. The competition for bragging rights was, as usual, fierce with no holds barred. Winscombe won on four of the five rinks, albeit by small margins but lost on the fifth by 11 shots which meant that Banwell have a two-shot advantage at home in the second leg in two weeks time.

At Clevedon Prom in the Clevedon and District Evening League, Winscombe looked like losing on all five rinks until the captain’s rink (Ken Whatling, George Hill, Tony Watts and Mal Dorrington) needing three to draw on the last end in the gathering gloom, had five magnificent woods counting to win the rink by two shots.

BANWELL began a busy week with the first leg of the annual Parrot Shield away at Winscombe.

The weather was perfect as the five rinks played out a closely-fought game. At the end there was only two shots in it. Despite Banwell losing on four of their five rinks, it was Banwell’s longest-serving playing member John Davies who came out smiling, having skipped his rink to a fine 11-shot win.

The weather was still hot as Banwell travelled to Ashcombe for a four-rink friendly. Winning three of the four rinks, Banwell won the game, but the rink that deserves all the praise is the rink skipped by that fellow John Davies, who surged to a massive 42-1 victory.

Banwell 100, Ashcombe 65: V McArdell, D Walker, J Rickerty, C Wilson 26-15; T Hyde, J Barron, A Vickery, J Davies 42-1; H Woodards, P Gaulton, J Amos, G Millard 19-18; D Robinson, J Evans, M Laycock, J Laurent 13-31.

It was nip and tuck throughout the evening and at the vend, one rink were still on the green, needing two to draw and three to win. With Banwell holding the three shots, Will Harrison the Victoria skip had other ideas and trailed the jack to pick up one shot and clinch the match.

Banwell 89, Victoria 92: H Woodards, J Amos, G Millard, C Wilson 19-20; T Burnett, D Robinson, A Vickery, P Owen 24-14; T Garfield, M Laycock, J Rickerty, P Villis 19-17; V Mcardell, S Kedward, K Burgess, M Davies 11-25; T Hyde, H Guckian, J Laurent, J Davies 16-16.

In a close run game, the rinks skipped by Sue Caddy and Lorna Whatling accumulated enough shots to counteract the losing rink.
