Yesterday - 19th October - at windy Bowood our Bowl team took on our near neighbours "The Point at Polzeath" in a Cornwall Bowl 1st round tie. Captain Terry Johns was obliged to make a last minute change to the team when Charles Rayment dropped out with man 'flu; his place being taken by the in form Paul Honey.

Although the score might indicate otherwise this match was tight for a good while; with each St Enodoc pair having to concede shots to their opponents and on a course with four par five holes this can make a difference.  None the less Terry's Boys hung on and in several cases came from behind to ensure what was eventually a comfortable win by 4 points to 1.

Next up for the team will be Perranporth over the weekend of 8/9th November at a venue to be decided.

  • Terry Carthew & Ben Chapman beat Steve & David Carter 5 & 4
  • Stuart Morley & Keith Thomson lost to Paul Lowe & Ian Collins 4 & 3
  • Paul Godfrey & Paul Honey beat George Temey & Stuart Privett 4 & 2
  • Joe Tamblyn & Derek Rushton beat Brian Harvey & Derek Peters 1 up
  • Mark Richards & Kevin Parker beat Chris Fennell & Ed Groom 5 & 4

The Bowood course was in good order and their welcome to the teams could not be faulted.
