Downton Win the Mixed Triples League

´╗┐ ´╗┐Match Report Downton for the first time in 38 years have won the Westbrook Mixed Triples League.The final match of the season took place at Downton Green on Wednesday afternoon 13th September 2023 against Amesbury Bowls Club. Downton needed to win on just one rink to secure victory.Amesbury fielded a very strong side as by winning this match they would be runners up in the league. Downton strongest rink comprised of Marie Clark, John James and Alan Waters had a comfortable win with 20 shots to 9 shots.Amesbury Captain Ali Noyes(also their Champion of Champions)and team fielded their best players against Marg Hall, Steve Allen and Nick Purkis and won very convincingly by 26 shots to 9 shots. The match now depended on the result on the 3rd rink .Ivan, Lynda and Colin made a great start and after nine ends were winning 11 shots to 1. But then Amesbury came back winning the next 5 ends. It all depended on the final end as to who would win this match. Luckily for us Colin and his team made four shots on the last end. This meant that we won the match by one shot and had 6 points to Amesbury 2. This result meant that Amesbury were unable to overtake Wilton currently in 2nd place and ended up in 3rd place in the league. My thanks go out not only to those who played in this match but also everyone else who played for the MTL especially Rod Hall, Dawn Allen and Simon and Marion Stacey and Jane Smith. Steve Allen
