METRO BOWLERS WIN THEIR MATCH AGAINST KINGSTON

On Wednesday the 7th of August, the Metro bowlers had their annual bowls match against KAB, Kingston Association for the Blind, bowlers.

Their coach arrived at 1.30 with 8 VI bowlers, 2 markers and a helper.  Eric had more than enough players who wanted to play in this nice friendly fixture, so it was agreed to play 3 games, 2 triples and a pairs.

All went well for 2 hours, then suddenly the heavens opened and all had to rush to the club house for shelter.  Eric and the KAB captain Jean agreed that they should play no more as the green was saturated and too dangerous to play any more.

Our club secretary Susan, then served up the food and drinks which was paid for by Metro.  Jean then read out the scores for the three games.  Jackie Venus, John Roulston and Maureen Ryan for Metro won 14-1:  Wilbert Williams with Yusuf Zeyrek won their pairs 14-5: Metro’s other triples Josie Wood, Junette Taylor and Khan Gause played well but lost 16-12.

This meant that Metro won the match 2-1 and had a better shot difference.  Eric invited them back next summer, and Jean said they would love to come again and try and win again like last year.

After they all got on their coach to take them back to Kingston, all the Metro bowlers went round to the local Wetherspoon for a nice evening.

 

Enjoyable Bowls Matchs Potter Bar

METRO BOWLERS ENJOY THEIR POTTERS BAR MATCH

On Saturday the 27th of July, 17 Metro bowlers met at Kings Cross then got the train to Potters Bar to play their annual match against that club for the Charlie Bastin cup. Transport was organised for us to take us from the station to the bowling club.  For years we could only get 3 teams, but last year we managed to get 4 and this year we managed to increase it to 5 teams.

3 of our new members: Yusuf, Josie and David Wood played for us their first match.  There had been heavy rain earlier, but by the time we got there the rain had nearly stopped so each team was able to play 18 ends of bowls.

The Metro bowlers played well, but the Potters Bar teams were this time just too good for us and they won on all 5 rinks.  Our team of Josie, Yusuf and Wilbert did the best of our teams only losing 16-13.

After the games finished, we all went in for a nice afternoon tea and a drink.  Our captain Eric then presented the cup to their captain Steve who invited us back next year.  Cars were then provided again to take some folk to the station and the majority went to the local Wetherspoon pub for an enjoyable evening.
