Desborough welcomed their local rivals from the Thicket and after an entertaining game won by 10 shots, 117-107, although the Captain of the day, Bruce Adams, called it as a draw as the 6 rinks were shared. The rinks skipped by David Perriman and David Webster done well to have winning scorecards but the top rink went to Brian Faulkner, Geoff Motley and Bruce Adams who really turned on the style with a 26 shot win, 34-8. However the game was nip and tuck all the way through and the real winner was the sport of bowls.
