Team Managers Bugle

The Bay are once again through to the Divisional Final of the Cox Cup. A breakdown in communications in messages from the home-front to New Romney meant that messages had to be received by telephone and not text which restricts me in giving a fuller home report. It appeared that both of our sides struggled against a New Romney side buoyant in their previous Cox Cup victory over a very strong Canterbury side. Away from home our regular side of Terry Kelly, Shaun Woolford, Paul Woolford and Grant Allen found the initial ends hard word work on a lush and very heavy green. It always seemed that at some stage they would take control of the game and from 8 - 11 down on the 13th end they never looked in danger. Ends 14 - 20 resulted in them acquiring 12 slots with no reply from their opponents. New Romney scored 1 shot on the final end to bring in a closing score of 20 -12 to "The Bay". At Spencer Road Dave Mason, Scott Whiting, Ian Robb and Joe Kelly won by the comfortable margin of 21 shots to 14.
So the the Divisional Final is apparently a repeat of last years Final against St Lawrence. The game will be played at Asford Rail next Sunday 6 August at 10am. All visitors and supporters more than welcome.
