EACF AC Leagues play-
The lawns in Central Park, Peterborough, which are shared with the bowls club whose original clubhouse is on the left.
Having won the Beds & Herts League Wrest Park travelled to Peterborough for the play-
The format is prearranged, the only element of chance being the draw for which club is to be A, B or C. Peterborough’s team included Ian and Debbie Lines
George Collin (-
John Bevington (1) and David Woolley (10) lost to Ian Lines (-
George Collin lost to Debbie Lines (-
John Bevington beat Dan Neal (½) (Bury) +13
Peter Aspinall lost to Justin Beaumont (18) (P’boro) -
David Woolley lost to John Robinette (10) (Bury) -
There’s not much to add. With a solitary win we finished last. George, who had substituted at the last minute for Ross Bagni who was unwell, at least went round to peg against Debbie but was then pegged out for his pains. Ian’s assiduity when completing his TP was matched by that of a squirrel carefully burying something next to the gutter on the edge of the lawn a few feet away from where David and John were sitting. The lawns were flat and quite fast, especially at the far end of lawn 1. And the expected rain held off.
Peter and George consider their next move.
