PRESS REPORT W/E 07.04.19
Oxford & District were the visitors for the last ever friendly at York Road and although Desborough managed a one shot victory, the guests claimed a draw as the six rinks were shared which would be a fitting way for this game to down in history. The rink skipped by David Perriman had a winning scorecard which left those marshalled by Paul Winstanley and Sam Stack to fight it out for top rink with the latter, along with Mike Hutley, Shirley Newnham and Michael Hobson, edging it with a 10 shot win, 25-15. After 112 years on the site it was the end of an era.
