Lee Moor v KTBC July 25

Keith BastonFriendly Match

Town was due to play Lee Moor at home on Sunday but on inspection damp areas were found on the new green after heavy rain and a last-minute decision was made to transfer the match to Lee Moor.  Town made a good start, 14-8 up after 4 ends but the home side clawed it back to lead by 3 shots at the half way break and finally prevail by 55-65.

On Town’s only successful rink, skipped by Eric Fitch, a ten shot lead was held at the break but the home side pulled a shot back in the 2nd half as Town won by 9 shots. On Keith Brayne’s rink a 6-13 deficit was wiped out by a run of 8 shots in the next 6 ends to lead 14-13 but they were pipped at the end by 2 shots. On Keith Baston’s rink a very tight game was played but counts of 4 and 3 against gave Lee Mill the edge. On the rink skipped by John Yeabsley, Town were always struggling but a count of 5 on the penultimate end gave them hope but the hosts then scored 5 on the last end to win by 12 shots.

Details:- Bill Rockey, Steve Ellis, Eric Fitch won 21-12. Sue Allen, Ray Lancaster, Keith Brayne lost 15-17. Jocelyn Schirn, Tony Walters, Keith Baston lost 10-15. Bill Schirn, Sandra Brayne, John Yeabsley lost 9-21.

Town would like to thank Lee Mill for organising the match at short notice.
