ALTHOUGH the Windsor Bowls PG1 team had already secured promotion, the final game at home to Pontyclun still had a major significance on the final promotion place. If Windsor could secure all match points, then Penarth would be promoted. Sadly for our friends at Rectory Road, they could only secure 10 of the 14 points so Pontyclun had cause to celebrate. The rink scores were Fullbrook, Thorne, Hope and Woodcock 25-14. Rogers, Ellard, Rees and Close 19-24. Lewis, Morrish, Palfrey and McLeod 29-16. Matthews, Burton, Gunter and Holmes 18-21. An overall victory for Windsor by 91 shots to 75. So the end of a very successful season for Captain Matt Woodcock and the challenge of Division Two for next summer.

The PG2 team had two matches planned for the week. The first was a re-arranged evening game at Whitchurch Hospital. A total of 15 ends were played before the impending gloom and torrential rain forced an early curtailment of the match., much to the obvious relief of the Windsor team. The game was won by the home team by 67 to 49. Worse was to follow on Saturday when the team made the journey to Pontyclun where more torrential rain meant a flooded green and a rapid return to Penarth without a shot being bowled. The season has gone fairly well for skipper Arty Woodcock and a few more wins in the latter stages would have secured his team a place in the upper half of the division.

Finally, a mention of the Alliance team. The Windsor Club can be extremely proud of the efforts of this team. Although success has not come their way, their enthusiasm and commitment has been an example to all. This is in no small measure due to the inspirational leadership of David Howells. Whereas many teams in the area have a weekly struggle to get a full Alliance team, David has had to contend with selection problems because of the number of willing participants, all of whom will be counting the days to next season.
