Daventry enjoyed a long-awaited win against the Nomads.
Three out of the four rinks had an excellent result, but I understand the fourth rink score did not reflect the quality of the bowling.
All four players bowled really well, but every end were out bowled by the opposition. Well done on a good club result.
Rink 1: Michael Isom, Brian Scott, Terry Fuller & Mick Worthington won 28-10
Rink 2: Brian Jones, Adge Smith, Alan Gardner & Michael Moulton won 18-14
Rink 3: Ray Dawson, Malcolm Foster, Alan Davies & Bernard Spreadbury 30-16
Rink 4: Ray Rumble, Ray Caira, Philip Daynes & Mark Courtney lost 14-29

Daventry lost at 95-62 against Chipping Norton on Saturday.
