Knyveton Kingfishers v Bustards

No sign of the threatened thunderstorms, which was good news as the green appeared to have been watered. Having said that, it was still quick & played really well.
Rink 2 – Lewis, Muriel, Ivan. Lost 13-17. We were 10-6 up after 10 ends & 13-12 up after 15 ends where we got a brilliant wick to go from 5 down to 3 up! Sadly, on the 17th end, we had an unlucky wick & went from 1 down to 3 down, effectively sealing our fate. Considering we only won 6 ends, this was a good team effort.
Rink 1- Paul, Alan, Geoff. Lost 11-25. Another tough day at the office, but never gave up & reached double figures on the last end, having lost a 6 on the 17th end. A good effort, against a very strong trio.
The Kingfishers are also struggling for players, so they had to use a couple of players who normally play at a higher standard, which included their men’s first team captain! They have also had to decommission one of their greens, which looked very sad.
Match result Bustards 24-42 Kingfishers. All six points to the Kingfishers. We are now down to eighth, one place above the relegation zone.
Next week we are home to Bournemouth Broncos. The bar is open from midday. All spectators are very welcome.
