THE last ladies match of the season for Windsor Bowls Club resulted in a comfortable win in the afternoon league against Llantwit Major. The final result was 65 to 38, including rink wins for A. Morrish, C.Fitzgerald, C. Davies and K. Dyer 28-6, and S. Howells, B. Dunlop, V. Flitney and D. Thomas 24-11. The other rink of C.Lewis, S. Paterson, A. Rees and M. Owen suffered a 13-21 reverse.

For the men, the honours again went to the PG1 team in their home game against Sully Sports. Although Windsor had already gained promotion, they were anxious to reverse their early season defeat at Sully. With the absence of Captain Matt Woodcock and the mercurial Ken McLeod, a tough contest was anticipated but the team rose well to the occasion, gaining a big win by 94 shots to 60.

On rink one, Matthews, Morrish and Gunter were all in top form, winning 27-11, giving Skip Holmes an armchair ride.

However, his teammates were still grateful for his occasional contribution. There was also a big win for Lewis, Palfrey, Flitney and Hudson 33-11 and a 19-14 win for Evans, Gooding, Thorne and Hope. The other rink of Rogers, Latham, Rees and Close suffered the only reversal, going down 15-24. Thoughts now turn to the last match of the season at home to Pontyclun where the promotion hopes of our neighbours at Rectory Road may well rest in Windsor hands.

It was at Rectory Road, that the Alliance team played their penultimate match but suffered yet another defeat, by 53 shots to 67. There was only one rink win, by Peregrine, Brenton, Hardess and Williams 23-12. A final chance of a victory comes next Tuesday at home to Cardiff when a big crowd is expected.

Thursday saw the visit of our great friends from St Albans for a friendly match. It resulted in a close win for Windsor by 54 shots to 47. Wins for Johnson, Williams, Latham and Lewis 14-7. for Meredith, Woodcock A, Morgan and Gunter 14-12 and a draw for Owen, Armstrong, Hales and Rogers 13-13.

Finally, The Windsor club would like to express their grateful thanks to all the teams that took part in the John Skone Memorial trophy and also to the day’s sponsors, Glamorgan Motors and James Summers.
