WEALDEN BOWLS: First, congratulations are in order for Maureen Spyers, Sue Taylor, David Horsburgh and Adrian Wainwright who have reached the last 16 of the National Mixed Fours. Good luck to them for future rounds. The SCIBA League visit to King Alfred last week was as difficult as usual, Wealden losing 2-9 in points and by 115-128 in shots. Tony Plater is maintaining his form winning 30-21 as did Adrian Wainwright with 25-21. In the SCWIBA League Wealden ladies travelled to Egerton Park to come second in a close match, 2-9 points and 73-88 in shots. Elizabeth Gooding had a good win having trailed 2-9 early on, 20-13; Janet Birch struggled throughout, 9-27; Vera Stevens was down 2-15 so did well to come back for 13-20; Val Menniss did better having been down 2-11 to finish 13-16; Joan Howson started behind but eight in five ends secured the lead which she held, 18-12. The Mid Downs Tourists brought many familiar faces in a strong team to win 94-135. Wealden won on just two, Chris Searle led most of the way but after a poor middle passage came back to win 21-19; old faithful Norman Dobson raced to an 11-1 lead, faltered a little but hung on to 19-17. In the SCIBA League Horsham visited but found it hard to come to terms with the Wealden green losing 11-0 and 202-52. Suffice it to say: all rinks won with three, Peter Menniss, Adrian Wainwright and Tony Plater winning by a margin of thirty or more. (Peter O Gacsall).
