Bulls take a battering

posted 22 Jun 2019, 14:50 by Stamford Indoor Bowls
Stamford Bulls' hopes of progressing in the EIBA Fantastic Fives Summer League were finally dashed when they returned empty handed from the long journey into Derbyshire to play Church Gresley.

The team, playing singles, pairs, triples and fours, never came to terms with an unforgiving carpet that has never been kind to Stamford bowlers in the past.

Peter Edwards was outplayed 14-2 by Mark McConnell before Tony Barwell, June Brennan, Glenys Edwards and John Little, making his Fives debut, lost 12-4 succumbing to a late burst of scoring.

It was a similar tale in the pairs for Barwell and Peter Edwards (3-17) and triples (8-12).
