County Friendly v Dorset

In a very competitive match at Atherley, Dorset got revenge for their defeat in the Don Gough Trophy match, winning by one shot (121 - 120), after Hampshire had to lose 25% on one rink’s score due to being a player short. Hampshire’s top rink was from Palmerston and Chawton Park with players Brian Shakespear (P), David Webb (P), Phil Wood (CP) and Peter Sanders (P)

David Webb and David Thurgood (CP) were presented with their colts badges and it was also great to see Bill Jackson presented with a flash following completion of 100 games for the County

Over 60’s v Sussex

Our Over 60’s campaign got underway today against a Sussex side that looked very strong across the board. Hampshire men took to the stage and after 10 ends we knew that in order to win we were going to have to dig very deep and not allow the 2 hour syndrome to kick in!

Without any warning a little magic from 2 rinks that were skipped by Mick Barrett and Adrian Ash gave Hampshire one hell of a boost but the other 4 rinks still had to keep the Sussex boys under wraps and they did …. with a winning margin of over 20 shots. Congratulations to all involved, an incredible game to watch and be a part of

Hampshire take on Devon next, on Tuesday 16 January. Team details will be published on the website

Liberty Trophy Team

Hampshire faced Berkshire in the first round of the Liberty Trophy this morning with a handful of people making their debut games and did not disappoint, with Hampshire men starting off very strongly. The overall score was a very nice cushion because when Berkshire made their comeback and got within 2 shots but Hampshire used the last quarter of the game to press on and get the job done

Hampshire will now meet Somerset in the next round on Saturday 16 December at Dorchester IBC. Congratulations to all involved, and looking forward to what will be a tough game just before Christmas
