PRESS REPORT W/E 3.2.19
A trip to icy Watford to play Herts IBC had a chilling outcome for Desborough as they slipped to a 139-79 defeat. Most rinks had an afternoon to forget although Bruce Adam’s rink only lost narrowly. The only bright spot was the winning rink of Kath Spracklen, Nigel Harlow, Tony Buckley and Roger Wyatt who won 18-15. Roger deserves a special mention as a timely intervention saved his rink from suffering the same fate as everyone else.
T Burrell, C Northover, S Stack. 12-24
