The first friendly game of the indoor season took place Saturday with the notable feature that the game was largely Desborough vs Desborough since the opposition was a touring side from Northampton which drew quite a few of its members from the second Desborough Bowling Club in Northamptonshire.
The visitors had the upper hand throughout with their familiarity as part of a touring side proving superior against a team mostly on their first or second indoor game after playing outdoors.
Desborough lost on all five rinks and overall by 68-169. Desborough’s best rink was skipped by Dave Webster with Roy Hughes, Michael Hobson and Barry Gill.
