After the opening of the green last Wednesday, this weekend saw the season kick off in earnest.
Yesterday (Saturday) saw the annual Captain v President match, with bragging rights in the Wilsher household at stake. Both sides claimed victory - Captain Paul courtesy of a match score of 111-59, but President Bob coming out on top in their rink 15-12. Fun was had by all, and the afternoon was finished off nicely with BBQ burgers and sausages made by the fair hands of Kevin and served up by Bev and Pat.
Today saw the first match of the season - a home friendly against Rosedale. On a chillier day, West Ealing ran out winners on all rinks, with an overall score of 67-49.
The Middlesex Women's match against Hampshire, originally scheduled to be played at West Ealing on 7th June, will now take place on 12th August..
The West Ealing quartet representing Middlesex in the Home Counties Championships will face Sussex's Sidley Martlets in the Semi-Final (15th May at Old Coulsdon BC)
