Last weeks midweek men's and ladies league teams both had success.

The ladies game on Wednesday evening at home to Witney Town produced a nail biting finish.

Mo Cox, Bev Mcneil, Helen Young and skip Caroline Campion held on for a 14-13 win after their opponents just missed out on a share of the points, picking up a three on the last end.

Myra Lewis, Jenny Williams, Anne Norton and skip Carole Galletly were level at 12-12 with three ends to play, but had no answer to the strong finish by their opponents who collected seven shots without reply to leave leave the Central ladies suffering a 12-19 defeat.

Central's third rink of Gill Hunt, June Bone, Annie Gilkes and Pam Shepherd turned their game around from a 6 shot deficit to pick up 16 shots  to the Witney Town ladies 2 over the last six ends for a 25-17 win and more inportantly an overall match win by two shots.


The men's 'A' team had a more convincing 82-64 win in their Oxfordshire Bowls League game away to South Oxford. 

Allan Hunt, Jim Gow, Lionel Lewis and Lee Young lost a tight game 18-21 in a game of two halves in which they lead at the halfway stage before losing out in the second.

Stewart Boyd, John Pardoe, Mike Andrew and Ian Whelpton won 19-17 in a game that tight throughout.

Central's third rinkn of Ian Gilbert, Luke Gilbert, Graham Morbey and skip Keith McNeil won overwhelmingly 29-11. This was established by them picking up a 6 on the eigth end and thena 5 on the twelfth.

The fourth and final rink saw Nigel Galletly, easing himself back in at lead after a his recent health scare, backed up by Paul Humphris, Alan Carter and skip Will Campion win their rink 16-15 after conceding a four on the nineteenth end.


Sunday's friendly match with Southam ended in abandonment with four ends left to play and Central leading on all three rinks when a heavy rain storm resulted on soaking not only the players but also the rink.

The deluge had begun.
