Press Report – December 16, 2018



There were mixed fortunes for Desborough`s entries in the National Over 60`s Double Rink. The A team faced West Berks A who have been successful in this competition in recent years and after a pulsating encounter the Maidenhead side triumphed with an aggregate score of 34-25. They will play Whiteknights A who defeated Desborough`s B team by 3 shots, 33-30. Desborough started slowly and left their late surge too late to overcome their county rivals leaving them to face the A side on 8 January.

The rinks skipped by Paul Winstanley and David Perriman both won by 1 shot leaving the top rink honours to go to late substitute Jim McDonnell, Peter Crabbe, Cy Woodward and the indomitable Brian Faulkner who won by 4 shots, 21-17.
