Home coming produces rich reward

The club returned to it's roots after an absence of over ten years as they played at their original venue when the club was first set up in 1989 at the North Wymondham Community Centre. Their first opposition back at the venue was second placed Carleton Rode who laid just a point behind them and soon found the new venue tough going. The first session saw Brian Saunders, Jack Marshall and Jack Pye storm to a 27-12 win over A. Biddulph, A. Bond and N. Davidson. The home triple quickly adapted better to the mats and raced into a 21-0 lead after eleven ends. The Rode triple came back into it late on to reduce the arrears but were well beaten. On mat 2 Roger Steele, John Jeffery and Jon Sparham beat M. Taylor, D. Blundell and T. Taylor 24-14. This was another solid performance but Jon had admitted he did not play as well as he could of but still managed to keep the Rode triple at bay. Ends two to six produced twelve shots and although the Rode triple replied Wymondham hit back winning more ends and with a brace and four over the last two ends put a gloss on the scoreline. 

Second session saw Pat Saunders, Mark Linsdell and Debbie Sparham beat G. Atter, K. Buck and G. Mobbs 20-11. The home triple could not settle against a stubborn Rode triple who played well early on, epsecially Graham at skip as they lead 5-8 after nine ends. This prompted a change as Deb was struggling to grasp the lines at times and made a positive impact at two with Mark now skip they won the next six ends to lead 18-10 with three ends remaining and taked the game away from the Rode triple. On mat 2 Steve Easter, Melvyn Barker and Chris Mann beat J. Pinchen, K. Newby and T. Newby 25-9. This was a solid perofrmance from the home triple who after a dropped three and brace on ends six and seven which saw the score at 9-8, the triple then reeled off the next seven ends to lead 21-9 with just four ends remaining for a strong win.
