The Burwash Short mat bowls club have come to the end of a disappointing season. The last two matches were home fixtures. The first one was against Laughton. In the triples Angela & Keith Marden and Julie Hawkins won 22-4, Wayne Reed, Irene Bell & Mick Moore won 18-8. After tea the pairs played with Alan Green & Barry Taylor losing 13-16 and Mary Taylor & Keith Wood winning 14-9. The next game was against Horam Cannons. The triples Angela,Keith & Julie won 17-6 but Margaret Waterhouse, Stephen Trew & Mick lost 10-12. The pairs Alan & Barry won 17-9 and Mary & Keith won 13-11. This gave us 12 league points but was not enough to save us from relegation to the second division. The club will continue to bowl at roll up nights on Monday evening. If anyone is interested in joining us we would be pleased to welcome you. No previous experience needed as tuition will be available. Call Mary on 01435 882107 for more details.
