Today Bedfordshire hosted Buckinghamshire Bowls Association at Sandy Conservative Bowls club in the first competitive game of the season as both counties were using this as a trial for the upcoming Middleton Cup matches. Two games of 12 ends were played with changes made after the first 12 ends.
Bedfordshire got off to a flyer maybe the weather and the home draw gave us an advantage and caught the Bucks team cold. Bedfordshire winning on 5 rinks and just losing one by 2 shots. Big wins coming from Ryan Stewart Tom Cawdell and Rhys Lee’s rinks.
Bedfordshire brought on 6 players after 12 ends and made a number of positional changes and Bucks made a charge back reducing the deficit.
Bedfordshire coming out overall winners 155-111.
We would like to thank the Sandy Con club for the use of the green and facilities.
