HOLDING a one shot lead going into the last end, the Windsor First team was on the verge of a shock win over high flying Barry Athletic.

Sadly, it was not to be as one superb wood changed the end and secured victory (and promotion) for the men from Barry.

In the end, it was defeat by a mere three shots but at least four league points were secured for the Windsor men to assist their battle to avoid relegation.

The last two weeks has seen superb performances against the top two sides and bears testament to the excellent spirit that is now evident in the team.

The rink scores were Mike Matthews, Charlie Lewis, Clive Palfrey and Ken McLeod 25/14.

Tom Evans, Phil Gooding, Ian Paterson and Matt Woodcock 22/15. Steve Ellard, Frank Coleman, Dave Rees and Graham Carlisle 16/20. Richard Flitney, Pete Morrish, Mal Hope and Rod Hudson 9/26.

The second team struggled in their last match of the season away at Llantrisant and lost by shots to 61 shots to 85.

There were however wins on two of the rinks. Dave Brenton, Roger Ellis, Dave Hales and Mike Cucciniello 18/16. Brin Peregrine, John Hardess, Keith Williams and Dave Howells 21/18.

Mike Dacey, John Armstrong, Brian Rogers and Derek Davies 11/19. Dave Johnson, Emrys Jones, Arty Woodcock and Simon Latham 11/35.

The Alliance team secured a major scalp with an away win at Rectory Road, defeating Penarth by 66 shots to 53.

The scores were Dave Brenton, John Armstrong, John Hardess and Simon Latham 20/4. Roger Ellis, Tim White, Hugh Morris and Mike Cucciniello 13/9.

Brin Peregrine, Dave Johnson, Lance Davies and Frank Coleman 19/21.

Tommy Owen, Ian Mathias, Tom Evans and Dave Howells 14/19.

The Ladies Afternoon League team continued their superb season with a comprehensive victory away at the Murch.

All three rinks were won, giving a final score of 61 shots to 32.

The scores were Mary Scarrett, Brenda Dunlop, Di Thomas and Veronica Flitney 24/9. Mary Jones, Anne Rees, Di Ellard and Ann Morrish 19/13. Sue Howells, Sharon Paterson, Moyra Owen and Di Roper 18/10.

Next weekend the Club finals will take place, the Men’s First team then has to wait for two weeks before they play their final league match against Llanbradach.

In all probability, that match will determine whether they will have avoided the dreaded relegation.
