Fuelled by Newky Brown, our skipper then put himself on 3rd leg. This was clearly an inspired decision, as his top-scoring 49 was a massive contribution towards turning the game around and handing a 20-pin advantage over to the anchors. A very tight game then ensued as the anchors fought to preserve that lead. Gary’s bottom score was bolstered by JT’s 43 and we only dropped a single pin, winning the game on the penultimate hand, taking the game by 19 pins in the end.
Neil and daddy Steve return for the next game (at home at last!!!!!!!!! – anyone remember the way to the Suffolk?) against new opponents Beehive Bitzas. How does Rob manage to avoid the bench? No game next week (‘cos we’re out of the cup ), but we’ll have a practice game and trip meeting.
