Noticeboard extract 1 -  Adams and Newton v Suffolk

Bad News greeted the Newton Team with the announcement that Chris Dexter had collapsed on the Green earlier in the Week whilst playing for Grantham and was in intensive Care. The Latest news is that Chris is still critical in Intensive Care. Go on Deccy, keep battling. We are all shouting for you.


This week Lincolnshire were away to Suffolk in must win games to qualify for Skegness. Unfortunately, both teams lost by the same result 6 – 16. The Adams lost by 7 shots and the Newton by 14.
Adams
Suffolk 172 Shots (16 Points)
Lincs. 165 Shots (6 Points)
Match Report by Gordon Wood
Jon Molson (Burton House) Chris Warboys (Ayscoughfee) & Trevor Bannister (Helpringham) WON 30 - 28

A close game seemed to be on the cards as the lead changed hands on a number of occasions. Trevor was 3 down at 5 the 4 up at 10 before going 2 down at 15 which was maintained at 20 ends before LIncolnshire had the lead again at 25 with 2 shots to the good. But 3 down on the 29th and with only two ends to go, things looked bleak. Good bowling saw Lincolnshire when both these ends by 5 shots to 0 to win the first points for the away team.

Dennis Skayman & Gordon Wood (ST Giles) Michael Thompson (Moorlands Railway) Lost 31 - 36

Up against Marcus Payne and his rink of M Page and M Smith, long serving member of Suffolk's County teams, this was never going to be easy, it was made more difficult by a strong start from the Suffolk trio who led by 9 shots at the 10th end. Making no headway on the deficit the Lincolnshire rink shuffled the formation with Skip to two, two to lead and lead to skip and started the fight back almost immediately until we had the lead on the 29th end at 31-29. A superb wood from the Suffolk skip picked up a three to go one up at the penultimate end. Desperately trying to win the rink points and help the overall score.Lincolnshire unluckily dropped another 3 on the last end.

Nathan Odlin (Burton House) John Withers (St Giles) & Mick Asplen (Burton House) WON 31 - 23

With all three Lincolnshire players in fine form this result was never in doubt as an early lead of 8 - 6 at five ends was increased to 14 - 6 at 10 ends and despite a stutter on ends 11 to 15 when the lead was cut back to 5 shots, this was held at the 20th end.It was Suffolk that dominated the next 5 ends and the score was a somewhat surprising 21-21. The Lincolnshire rink responded well and won 4 of the last 6 ends to finish 8 shots to the good.

Paul Hickman (Moorlands Railway) Tony Powell (Burton House) & Geoff Parker (Kirton) WON 26 - 25

Once again a close run thing, as is usual between these two team. Geoff's rink found themselves behind at five ends by 3 and with the next five ends fairly equal the lead was now only 2. The fifteenth end saw Lincolnshire take a 5 shot lead thanks to a 4 and a 3 in quick succession. The twentieth end saw the lead at 6 shots before being extended to 8 at the 25th end. Urged on by a large Suffolk supporters group saw the home side score on 5 of the last 6 ends to narrowly lose to Lincolnshire by 1 shot.

David Gill, (Kirton) Gary Kitchen (Foreshore) Chris Gill (Kirton) Lost 26 - 27

Chris's rink was up against another strong rink from Suffolk and quickly found themselves behind despite playing well. 5 shots down after 5 ends turned into 8 down at ten ends and despite Lincolnshire continuing to play well the deficit was still 6 after 20 ends. Finally the away side started to get the bit of luck their play deserved, holding Suffolk to just one winning end Lincolnshire pulled within one shot at the 25 end. The match was ctill very close with less than 10 shots in it across the board. Lincolnshire went into the last end all square at 26 - 26, the last end was played out rather slowly as each shot was discussed and all options considered. The fixture was still anyone's to win. Suffolk claimed the rink points with the last wood played.

Keith Tointon (Sleaford Road) Paul Hudson (Foreshore) & Richard White (Burton House) Lost 21 - 34

Richard's rink stuttered from the start and quickly found themselves 8 shots behind after 5 ends, this was only increased to 9 after 10 ends as Lincolnshire seemed to have sussed out a difficult rink. 15 ends saw the lead remain the same at 9 shots.Had we weathered the storm and now about to take off.Unfortunately we had flattered only to deceive as the Suffolk advantage was extended to 12 shots at 20 ends then 18 shots at 25 ends. Suffolk were dominant over the remaining ends finally running out by an impressive 13 shots.

Despite this result we need to lift our heads and strive for maximum points in our final two matches. Mathematically, we still have chance, albeit slim, of reaching the National finals at Skegness.

Match Report by Brian Jackman
After 54 ends the scores were level. Suffolk edged in front at 10 ends to lead by 6. Lincolnshire won the next 5 ends and again the scores were level at 15 ends. Ends 16 – 20 were to prove vital to Suffolk as they opened up a 12-shot lead at 20 ends and maintained this at 25 ends. The final 6 ends were also close so Suffolk ran out winners by 14 shots.

Steve Tinker Brian Jackman (Moorlands Railway) Joe Lewis (Grantham) Won 37 – 23.
Over the first 10 ends the game was close with both Skips in top form converting when needed. Joe trailed by 1 shot at 5 ends but picked up a 4 count on end six and then winning ends 8 & 9 saw a 3 shot lead at 10 ends. All the Rink were playing well and opened up a 9 shot lead at 15 ends. Ends 16 – 20 were shared and the lead stayed at 9. At 25 ends the lead was 10 and the final score was 37 – 23.
Neal Poole & Graham Teal (Cemetery Road) Paul Grimbleby (Scunthorpe) Won 26 – 21
This was a close game all the way through. After 5 ends Paul led by just 1 shot. By winning 3 of the next 5 ends saw a lead of 3. The next 10 ends were shared and so at 20 ends Paul led by 2. At 25 ends it had gone back to 3 and by winning 4 of the last 6 ends saw a final margin of 5 shots.

David Brammer (Branston) Tony Gowling (Ayscoughfee) Tracy Nunn (Mareham) Won 39 – 32
David, Tony and Tracy made a good start and led by 4 shots at 5 ends. Dropping a 3 count on the next 2 ends saw them go 1 behind but by winning the next 5 ends they opened up a 3 shot lead at 10 ends and by 11 at 14 ends. It was then Suffolk's turn to have a winning sequence of 4 ends scoring 13 shots so at 20 ends the lead was just 1. By winning 4 of the next 5 ends the lead was extended to 7. The final 6 ends were shared and the final score 39 – 32.


Graham Porter (Burton House) Mick Carr (Burton House) & Brian Veasey (Grantham) Lost 23 – 38.
A close game through the first 10 ends with Brian leading by 1. They then lost 4 of the next 5 ends and trailed by 6 at 15 ends. The next 5 ends were shared and so still trailed by 6 at 20 ends. They then lost another 4 shots and were 10 down at 25 ends. A final score of 23 – 38.



John Stray (Freiston) Waylon Clarke (Moorlands Railway) Jason Lewis (Grantham) Lost 24 – 28
Suffolk found the Green quicker and led by 3 shots at 5 ends and by 8 shots at 10 ends. They won the next 3 ends increasing their lead to 16.

A strong finish from Jason's Rink saw the final score 24 – 28.

Tony Sumner (Grantham) Nigel Cherry (Castle Spalding) Paul Howseman Billinghay) Lost 21 – 41.

Noticeboard extract 2 -  Adams and Newton v Northants

Lincolnshire travelled to Northamptonshire this week hoping to continue their unbeaten records. The Adams playing at Stamford won by 183 shots and 19 Points to Northants 157 Shots and 3 Points.
Adams Trophy
LINCOLNSHIRE away to NORTHANTS
Adams Report by Gordon Woods
Lincolnshire travelled the relatively short journey to Blackstones B.C. In Stamford hoping for a good result to maintain the good start to this season's campaign.

RESULT:

LINCOLNSHIRE 19 Points - Northants 3 Points
LINCOLNSHIRE 4.1/2 rinks - Northants 1.1/2 rinks
LINCOLNSHIRE 183 shots - Northants 157 shots


G Parker's rink led 5-1 at the 5 end checkpoint and was extended to 12-4 at ten ends as the Linc's lads quickly got to grips with the pace of the rink. With Northants coming more into the game the lead remained pretty much the same at 17-10 after 15 ends. Again the game was fairly Even for the next 5 ends with Linc's still leading by 22-14. Both teams played well and the next five ends saw both teams score five shots each with a score of 27-19. The last six ends were shared with Northants gaining one more shot than the away team as Lincolnshire finished 32-25 to the good.

R White's rink started slowly and found themselves 2-8 down after the first five ends. The game continued in a similar fasten and we were still behind at ten ends by 12-5. The next five ends saw Lincolnshire fight back strongly to make the fifteenth end a more satisfying 12-16. Lincolnshire continued to play with confidence and at twenty ends were only one shot behind 18-19. Twenty-five ends saw the lead now two at 21-23 when the away rink picked up a five to go three up, could we press on and claim the rink points? 30 ends saw Northants back in the lead by two shots but a good solid last end from all players saw Lincolnshire pick up two shots to draw the rink score 29-29

T Bannister's rink didn't have the best of starts and were 2-5 down at the fifth end, but five ends later had gained the lead at 8-5. Continuing to have the better end the fifteenth end showed the Lincolnshire rink further ahead by virtue of a 14-8 score line. Scoring on all of the next five ends we looked comfortable at 20-8 and hoped to press on but were held as the shots were shared 23-11 the last six ends went Northants way as we gained four shots on end twenty-six only to drop a five on the very next end. This spurred Northants on and they were successful on three of the last four but failed to make up the full deficit.

M Thompson's rink had drawn three players who were on their home green so it was always going to be difficult, the Northants rink quickly settled into their stride and at five ends were leading 5-2. Lincolnshire gained a crumb of comfort as the umpire was summoned on and judged that one of Northants bowls and one of ours were both touching the jack resulting in no score. Despite this the Lincolnshire rink found themselves at the wrong end of a 11-4 score line despite playing fairly well. The next five ends saw us making some progress as we reduced the lead from seven to five. Lincoln then won all five ends to make the score after twenty ends 15-14. The game was now developing into quite a battle between swinging woods and narrow running woods as first one side held the shot, then the other side held the closest bowl. The narrower running woods held sway as Northants edged in front 18-20 at twenty-five ends. Finally running out winners by five as we chased shots to try and gain the rink points.

J West's rink were another rink that were left behind in the early stages as the home side went into an early 2-5 but recover quickly to lead 8-7 at ten ends. Fifteen ends saw Lincolnshire increase the lead by 16-12. Lincoln then hit a brick wall as Northants won 8 of the next nine ends to lead 17-29. Lincolnshire were galvanised into action and took the game by the scruff of the neck and proceeded to win eight of the last ten to win convincingly by ten shots, 32-22 to be Lincolnshire's best rink.

M Asplen's rink was evolved in a strange game which saw 70 shots shared between the two sides, luckily our share was larger than theirs. Lincolnshire started by dropping six in the first two ends before scoring a five in the third and then lost the next two ends to be behind 5-12 at five ends. We then dominated the next five ends to make the score 12-13. Four ends from the next five put us back in front 17-14. The next five ends saw Lincolnshire move to 25-19. Winning 17 shots to Northants 6 put Lincoln 34-20 before Lincolnshire dropped 10 shots in four ends, including a maximum six on the twenty sixth end, before we scored four to Northants two to win a strange game 38-32.

A very good win overall against a very competitive and experienced Northants side to set us up nicely for the long, long journey to Lowestoft next Saturday to face Suffolk. A win would then put our destiny in our own hands as we would then have two home games to play to complete the fixtures.


Match Result.
