Matches Played 20 JUNE 2019

 

 

The majority of the points on offer were split between the top three teams inDivision 4 to leave the two promotion places as close as they were.

 

Burford tried to lose the, seemingly very safe, match points to James Baldwin’s Blackbird Leys rink. Easy wins on three rinks, including one against a weak Leys triple, should have ensured match points but the fourth rink was lost by twenty-seven shots and this should have been sufficient for Leys to take match points but Steve Gould’s men took six shots from the last two ends, having only score a single shot in the whole game to that points. Those shots swung the overall score to Burford!

 

Wins for John Parker and Mick Bostock’s rinks ensured that West Oxford triumphed at home to South Oxford though they could easily have had three wins as West’s David Lyne’s rink only snatched victory on the last end of their game.

 

I can vouch that the stories of London Transport buses arriving in waves after hours of no buses at all were all based on the truth having spent my childhood in North London. I never thought that I would be using the expression in a bowls report! However, we have waited some time for a tied game in the league and this week provided not one but two! Not to be upstaged by Division one, Oxford University Press and Woodstock fought out a second tied match. Unfortunately, I have no rink cards or other details for this match!
