EXTERNAL COMPETITION SUCCESS FOR WONERSH, WORDS CONTRIBUTED BY NEIL CALLINGHAM
On Saturday 20th September, 8 representatives from Wonersh took to the green at Rogate Bowling Club for the final of the Three Counties Presidentís Cup against our near neighbours Milford. Unfortunately our Three Counties Captain, Terry Hill, and his wife Maureen, were unable to play due to being in the USA so Maddy and Ken Lamboll were called in as replacements to join Chris Bushell and Ted Carpenter as one rink and Mike Hersey, Lesley Vincent, Gordon Tuffs and Neil Callingham took the other.
Both teams started well and got off to good healthy leads but although Milford fought back hard on Tedís rink, Mike, Lesley, Gordon and Neil were able to maintain and extend their advantage. In the end, Tedís rink winning 19-18 and Neilís rink winning 29-7 meaning an overall win for Wonersh 48-25.
It was a fantastic match for those playing and representing the club to what I believe is the first Presidentís Cup victory. It was a shame that Terry and Maureen, having done so much to help us get to the final, as well as winning Division 2 in the league only losing one match and winning the rest either 4-1 or 5-0, were unable to play that afternoon and be a part of the finale.
On behalf of Terry, I would like to thank everyone who has played in the Three Counties League and Presidentís Cup matches this year and everyone should be proud of themselves for what they have achieved for Wonersh Bowling Club, I certainly am!! The winning teams are pictured below.
Popularly known as The Two Richards, pictured below are our first-class greenkeepers Richard Martin and Richard Sherwood who keep
