Oxfordshire Bowls League Fixtures 2019

 

In our first year of Men’s League we have finished mid table, overall quite respectable. We have learned a lot and should be proud that we were able to field 16 players each week, as for some clubs this can be quite difficult. Without doubt this competition has improved the overall game of several players, and I’m sure all involved will be ready for next season. A big thankyou to all our women members  Pat Walker, Pat Hill, Ann Fleming, Doreen Dowley, Barbara Morgan and Tracey Godfrey who have provided great food for our home games and to John Hurren (Captain) and Jack Lafford(Vice Captain) for their organisation and team selections. Also a big thankyou to the car users for away games and of course a big well done to all the players involved.

 

 

                    OXFORDSHIRE BOWLS LEAGUE – LEAGUE STANDINGS 8th AUGUST 2019

 

In Division 4, fourth place Burford could finish second if they defeated a resurgent Blackbird Leys on all four rinks. In the event, they trailed on two rinks throughout the game which meant they could not go above City and County, who were not playing. Woodstock could gain promotion and the division title if they took at least five points from their match with Oxford University Press. They surpassed this winning a very one-sided match by 54 shots. That meant that they were promoted but West Oxford would still take the title if they took two points from their game at South Oxford.

 

Win they did, and took five points to clinch the title, but it was closer than the final score suggests. Mike Bostock’s rink trailed 14-9 after fifteen ends as South Oxford looked to spoil West’s party. It took a five shot win on end sixteen and a final end three to clinch the game and the match for West Oxford.
