PRESS REPORT w/e 2.12.18
It was a quiet week where the attention centred on the two entries in the National Over 60’s Double Rink. Desborough A played Oxford & District and managed a 42-26 victory. The away rink skipped by Len Essex started slowly while they got used to the playing conditions but eventually got a win which left all the glory to go to the home rink skipped by Eddie Orme who were always in control and ran out 29-15 winners. The A team now face West Berks A on December 11.
S Williams, C Behmber, B Long, E Orme. 29-15
G Knapper, H Pike, T Eales, L Essex. 13-11
Desborough’s B team faced West Berks B and won with an aggregate score of 37-30. The home rink skipped by Dave Seymour had a titanic battle which was always in the balance with Desborough finally winning by 1 shot. The away rink skipped by the unassuming Michael White were always in control from the start and won 16-10. They now have the daunting task of facing Whiteknights A.
M Forward, C Knowles, J Young, D Seymour. 21-20
J Stenson, R James, R West, M White. 16-10
