Branksome Park  v Boscombe Cliff (home) 1st May 2021

In spite of the weather the game was very enjoyable especially the result.  I know this season is not the same as usual but it has been a long time since we beat Boscombe Cliff and never 14-0.  All the rinks were close at the end but they all held on to win.

Barry Stone’s rink went into the last end one down but picked up a 3 to win 21-19.  Alec McKenzie’s rink went into the last end one up and picked up a 5 to win 19-13.  Great bowls from Alan Bliss kept his rink always in front who won 19-14.  Jim Garners rink had a tough game but pulled through with a two on the last end to win 18-14.
A great start to the season even with 6 players sat out.
Report from Graham Cox.

Saturday Morning Triples Match Report - 1st May 2021

On a cold and icy May Day morning the Saturday Morning Triples Teams turned in a mixed bag of results with wins at home for the 'B' and 'D' Teams but defeats for the 'C' and 'E' Teams in their away matches.

Branksome Park 'B' 38 New Milton 'D' 28
Branksome Park 'D' 31 Iford Bridge    30
Knyveton Gardens 34 Branksome Park 'C' 21
Bournemouth Buffalos 41 Branksome Park 'E' 18
The 'E' Team found themselves pitted against a Bournemouth Team who fielded an ex-international and a regular Premier League player as skips.  Needless to say however well Branksome bowled the final opposition wood invariably turned a 2+ shots hold into a 1 or 2 down.
