El Cid Have to Settle for a Share of Points at Greenlands

Sept. 2018

Another cold early start for El Cid travelling down to play Greenlands in the Winter League. If we were having second thoughts about re-joining this league it soon changed when we arrived at the refurbished Greenlands and were met with a very friendly welcome from many bowlers we knew from old and reminisced over past years bowling.

We lost the toss for owning the matt but had high hopes of a good result. At the half way stage the scores were even. Up on 2 rinks, down on 2 and drawing 1. Perhaps the eagerly awaited hot sausage rolls would give us a boost for the second half but sadly Greenlands also gained some energy and the second half was very similar to the first.  It was so close on Rink 4 that a nail biting last end saw Greenlands take the game by 1 shot to secure a win resulting in a 6 6 draw. Best results for El Cid were Floyd Williams, Pat Arnett, Jim Pavelin and Clive Scott winning 23 8 on rink 6 and  Paul Trunchion, Bernie Isaacs, Helen Hall and Paul Leeder winning 20 14 on rink 8. Team Captain Derek Randall thanked Debbie Williams for stepping in at the last minute  (6.30am) to cover a late call of due to illness.

It was back on the coach after a meal and a few drinks and a game at home against local rivals Javea Green to look forward to next week.
