16th April 2016

A warm April day welcomed our annual visitors from Kidwelly. Traditionally Kidwelly provide stiff opposition and this year was no exception with their team containing multiple Welsh internationals and Gold cup winners. Wigan and his rink of Cameron, Club Chairman Fred and JR started slowly against Gold Cup Legend David Kingdon, 12 shots to 5 down after 12 ends but picking up a 6 on the next end changed the game and they eased to a 23 to 15 victory. Rink 2 saw Chris skipping Dai, Club Steward Joe and Ben. An evenly matched game until the 12 end , the Tenby rink accelerated away picking up counts of 2,4,4,4  in the next 4 ends to take the lead and also ease to a 24 shots to 18 win. Simon and his rink of Ben, TP and Peter continued where they left off against Pendine last week. Comfortably ahead by 15 shots to 6 after ten ends, they continued in a similar vein in the second half to win by 29 shots to 14. Ashley ably supported by Viv, David and Neil started slowly, losing by 13 shots to 2 after 7 ends. After a brief comeback to get within one, Kidwelly then counter attacked and ran out comfortable winners by 25 shots to 17. Jon Webb with Beano, Johnno and Ken had a ding dong battle against Matthew James' Kidwelly rink. The lead changed hand on numerous occasions,

but the Tenby quartet looked comfortable on the 19th end leading by 6, However Kidwelly picked up 7 shots in the remaining ends to win by a single shot.  Out on rink 6, Gerald together with John, Kev and Steve also struggled early on, trailing by 11 shots to 3 after 8 ends. Solid bowling by all four allowed them to even up the match by the 16th end, however a final flourish by the Kidwelly rink led to 21 shots to 16 win for the visitors. A tough game against quality opposition which will set up both the Tenby and Five Arches teams for the forthcoming season. Finally many congratulations to Jon Hubbard who has been selected to represent Wales in the forthcoming Para Bowls Home internationals in Glasgow. Jon has been a stalwart member of Tenby Bowling Club for many years  and has finally achieved the recognition he thoroughly deserves.
