Men retain place in S&D Division 1

Posted by Oiver Moody on 5 February 2019

With 2 teams to be relegated, we were sat second from bottom of the league, with crunch games against 2 clubs in and around the relegation zone.  But when push came to shove they found a stunning run of results to secure their safety, and another season in the top tier of local bowls.  The recovery began with the visit of Faringdon, bottom of the table and some 9 points behind us, a great all round perfomance saw us run out easy winners with victories coming on all 3 of the 4 rinks, and a brave draw on the final one to earn a huge 13 of the 14 available points.  The teams confidence was massively lifted as we travelled to Westlecot to take on a team sat in 5th, thankfully with not a lot to play for.  In a tight game that saw both sides holding the lead overall on numerous occassions, we held on to collect a maximum 14 points winning on every rink is the fading autumn light.  We went into the final match of the season against a team who our previous 2 results had put below us.  Marlborough travelled to our green, with us knowing that just 4 points were required to secure our safety, but we had no intention settling for that, we took an early lead on all 4 rinks, and never looked back, running out with another maximum haul, and safe in the knowledge that we had done enough to survive, eventually finishing 5 from bottom and 25 points clear of relegation.
