Skips Jeff Richards and Dai Lloyd saw their rinks win 21 -11 and 14 -13 respectively with skips Clive Coles and Mike Rees making up enough scores to secure a win for the club.

Captain, Mike Rees was delighted with the win and ” Thanked all players who turned out and produced a fine first game of the season performance!”

Vets Start with a Defeat

Dafen Crusaders Mid-Week Vets  League team got off to a poor start losing to Dafen Welfare at home.

Result Rink 1 : Peter, Chris , Mike 14-23

Rink 2 : Alan , Mel  Jeff 11–21

On Rink 2,  although the score suggests otherwise,  it was pretty close going into the last quarter, but Jeff dropped a 4 in the 16th end and that ended that , Having said that I  thought  Jeff had an outstanding debut.

Rink 1 was a similar outcome, although the front pairing of Peter and Chris performed superbly. The Welfare team had too much quality, with Dennis Walters and Clouie John having very good games.



Our Home Friendly Match against Glasgow scheduled for Saturday 12th May has been cancelled as the Scottish side will not be making their trip to South Wales this year.
