ABBOTS LANGLEY BOWLS CLUB O


ne of the essential parts of the preparation on the actual match day is the meal which


follows. At Abbots Langley Bowls Club we do not have


the facilities to prepare cooked food thus the match repast tends to be a ―ploughman‘s‖ or, as was the case on the August 20, with Joan Sutton in charge, a ―super ploughman‘s‖. The match, which was against Oxhey, had all


the elements of the English summer. When the match started at 2.30pm the rain


was heavy, within the hour the sun was breaking through and by 4.30pm it was a beautiful summer‘s afternoon, wall to wall sunshine – from questionable beginnings a glad to be alive day. There were three men‘s rinks playing in the


Watford and District League together with one ladies rink. The ladies lost narrowly, the men won


convincingly and then followed the meal, an excellent repast thanks to Joan. Overall the ladies have finished third in their league which comprises 10 teams and whilst

they tied with Tring who finished in second place, both teams having 12 points, Tring had a slightly better shots difference. Paula Vaux, our ladies captain, was pleased with the season a whole. The foundations have been laid for the big


push for first place next season. Well done ladies. The Watford and District League is still being


contested by the men with the last games to be played after this issue goes to print. Overall though the men are more than holding


their own with much of this is down to the drive and enthusiasm of Wilf Johns the men‘s captain aided by his accomplice and vice-captain Graham Picton. In the Veterans League both pools are


currently mid table and already planning for the indoor season which starts in September.
