The A team won by a large score and won 3 out of 4 rinks.
However the B team did win 1 game by a narrow margin of 2 shots.
We wish the A team good luck in the next round versus Kingsthorpe A.
The ladies of Daventry Tigers and Daventry Town outdoor bowling club came together to form a team to enable the clubs to take part in the Friday Night Ladies Northamptonshire Triples League.
It was the first match of season and six ladies and their supporters set off fo play against the ladies of Whyte Melville Club. It was just the weather for an evening Bowls match, the green bowled true to its reputation – fast! Although the Daventry Ladies took a heavy defeat, we all came off the green smiling having enjoyed our experience at Whyte Mellville. Captain Margaret Daynes thanked the team for their valiant effort.
We look forward to the forthcoming games, next game is against Woodford Halse at the Tigers on 7th June at 6.30 pm.
On a bright and sunny afternoon Daventry Town entertained Byfield to a game of four triple rinks. Early in the season the green played very well and a very enjoyable game ended with the closest of scores. Each side won two rinks, but thanks to their highest winning rink of Richard Taylor, John Moore and skip John Hodgkinson, Daventry won by one point 62-61.
Afterwards both sides enjoyed tea and biscuits, and a little alcohol in the clubhouse!
Daventry Town kicked off the 2019 season with a win over Banbury Chestnuts at the weekend. Although is was very cold as the games were played the spirit of the friendly was not lost and late in the second half Daventry took the lead and were able to hold on to it after a great fight back from Banbury.
Congratulations to the Highest winning rink: Lead, Brian Robbins 2nd, Don Grant, and Skip, Arthur Stowe..
