BOWLS: County ladies finish campaign well
WILTSHIRE LADIES concluded their 2013 campaign with a double as they won their final county friendly match and then a few days later took the honours in the annual county showdown against the men.
County ladies president Margaret Annetts (Salisbury) led the women to a comprehensive 36 shots win over Pen-y-Glyn at Wroughton as they took the honours on four of the six rinks in their last friendly of the season.
Annetts, Sue Gravell, June Corbett and Margaret Griffin all led their fours to glory in the 124-88 victory.
Then last week Annetts led the women to an excellent 20 shots success over the men.
They trailed 55-46 at ten ends and 82-78 at 15 but roared back to pull away as they ran-out 128-108 victors at Trowbridge Town, the home green of men’s president Roy Jones.
As in their previous match the ladies won on four of the rinks with Marcia Cottle notching the biggest success by 20 shots, while Nancy Oliver won by 12 shots and Delia Godwin by seven.
And in the county presidents head to head clash it was Margaret Annetts who came out on top defeating Roy Jones by seven shots in their match on rink four.
