TENBY 108 shots WEST SUSSEX 99
On Wednesday, May 14, West Sussex were visitors to the Tenby green. Staying at the Clarence House Hotel, travel distance for them could not have been shorter! This was their fourth out of a six-match tour and, arriving at the Tenby green undefeated, they were in confident mood to make it four out of four. The game was played in wonderful sunshine and high spirits, as were all the games on their tour. After 10 ends, tea and biscuits were enjoyed in the pavilion with the score at the time 53-42 in favour of West Sussex, so we plied their players with extra Jammie Dodgers! Those extra biscuits made a difference, with Tenby pulling back the score to eventually run out winners 108-99. Well done Tenby Bowling Club. Many thanks to all who helped make the afternoon so successful. Special thanks to Pendine Bowling Club who supplied Tenby Bowling Club with one rink of players.
