Top Club – all over for this year ….
Hornsea played a valiant game on Sunday 6th January against Barwell Indoor Bowls club but after some close games we were just beaten.
A team change saw team captain Katy Baxter playing the ladies two ball singles, where she gave the team a cracking start with a 21-7 win. Ed Wright fought a long and tight battle in his two ball game only just losing in the last two ends at 19-21.
The pairs, triples and fours all had tight games against a very skilled Barwell team that included Commonwealth medallist Jamie-Lea Winch in the triples team and World Bowls 12th ranking player Les Gillet skipping the fours. Each rink just lost but not for the want of trying. We wish Barwell the best of luck in the rest of the competition.
Many thanks to all who drove down to South Forest to support the Hornsea team and to all who supported us from home. The bar has been set high for next year’s competition!
