The featured match this weekend for Browston Bowls Club was against the Suffolk Vice Presidents.

This is always a tough event as the VPs send top-class bowlers. Browston fought to the end and lost out 119-105. Best rink was Bill Turner’s block of Len Medler, Julie Harlow and Ken Saward who came through 20-13.

Diane Purnell followed with a 27-22 win assisted by Derek Allison, Jack Hill and June Dhonau. Despite being 21 all at the 19th end, however, a fine six soon sorted that out. Shirley Lloyd, Mike Harvey, Kim Grace and Irene Hill just managed to squeak home 17-16.

Neville Miller, Vic Cockett, Richard Wetherall and Jan Payne slipped to 12-20 defeat whilst Mick Blandford, Owen Smith, Sue Cockett and Pat Drinkall succumbed to a 16-25 loss and finally John Spooner with Mel Bye, Peter Williams and Pam Spooner went under 13-23.

The match, as always, was played in a friendly but competitive manner.
