One way traffic at Wymondham

Defending champions Wymondham proved too hot to handle for bottom of the table Connaught “B” as they swept to another huge win at their North Wymondham venue. Even without England Premier’s Jack Pye in their line-up the home side accumulated a massive 141 shots while the visitors scored just 17 shots in a damaging 10-0 defeat. It is not the first time, and will no doubt not be the last time, that the Breckland League giants simply brush aside an opposition team visiting Wymondham with no real hope of stopping this short mat bowls juggernaut. In the first half Mary Fisher, John Jeffery & Chris Mann scored a 39-8 win while Billie Barker, David Chadwick & Jon Sparham won by 22-3. You would think it could not get worse for the visitors in the second half but it did as Steve Easter, Jack Marshall & Melvyn Barker raced to a 42-2 win while Hayley Osbourne, Simon Warnes & Debbie Sparham won by 38-4. It may only be one month into the new season but Wymondham are the only unbeaten side in the Breckland League while their main rivals Carleton Rode and Connaught “A” have both already lost a game apiece. The Rode went down at Connaught “A” while Connaught “A” lost at Harling Unicorns. This week Carleton Rode picked up a solid 8-2 away win at Thetford where Neil Davidson’s triple won 22-11 and Russell Davidson’s triple won 24-6. It was a good week for Hingham who produced two home wins. They beat Harling Griffins 8-2 with Graham Tweed’s triple winning by 27-6 and followed that up with another 8-2 home win against Shropham. Joy Townsend’s triple led the way in this match with a 22-9 win. Shropham also suffered a 6-4 home defeat against Harling Unicorns with visiting skip Mike Tarrant winning 26-14. A local derby at Harling saw Griffins beat the Unicorns 8-2 with G A Hume winning 28-9 and G L Hume winning 19-10.
