Tony Allcock Trophy

And now some good news!

This is a mixed knockout competition for over 60s. The format is 2 rinks, 2 men & 2 ladies on each rink play 18 ends, the score is combined. Our 2 teams are:

Margaret Liley, Adrienne Hughes, Andy Jones & Keith Sutton

Glenda Mogg, Linda Macbeth, Peter Challens & Alan Mogg

This season's campaign started away to Byfleet where we won fairly easily on both rinks to go through to the next round away to West End. This proved more challenging. We won one rink but lost the other. The scores were level which resulted in an extra end being played. Peter managed to 'draw' the winning shot to take us through.

On Sunday 10th July, we played at home against Cranleigh. Keith's rink were 10-0 up after 6 ends, 14-2 up after 11 ends and finished at 16-11.

Alan's rink were down 15-2 after 10 ends but in the second half of the game went on a run and finished losing narrowly 17-19. So overall, the score was 33-30 taking us into the ZONE FINAL.

The final was played against Egham at West Byfleet on the 24th July. We made a reasonable start on both rinks but at the halfway mark Egham had built a solid lead in the match. A late rally was not enough to turn the match round so unfortunately the journey ended there.
