Central players had another busy day on the green on Saturday, with the men travelling to Iver Heath at the bottom end of the M40 for the National Club Two Fours competition and the women playing in the Quarters and Semi finals of the County Singles competition at Banbury Chestnuts.


In the Two Fours the rink of Alan Carter, Bob Joiner, Keith McNeil and ship Will Campion found their range after the first couple of ends and went ahead on the 4th end, to stay just in front for the rest of the game to win 18-14. Central's other rink of Lee Young, Andy Wilkin, Graham Morbey and Nigel Galletly got off to a good start winning the first five ends and then like Central's other rink, stayed in front for the rest of the game and also finishing 4 shots in front on 20-16.

Their next game is at home against Bletchley.


Central had 3 representatives in the Women's County Singles quarter finals, Mo Cox, Carole Galletly and Caroline Campion.

Mo won her game against Watlington's Katie Glenn 21-20, Carole 21-18 against Carterton's Wendy Sandy and Caroline recovered from a 9 shot deficit to beat Wendy Cross from the Shiplake Village club 21-19.

With three of the four semi-finalists being Central bowlers, the club was guaranteed a finalist, but also guaranteed that one of them was going to go home disappointed. The unfortunate semi pairing saw Mo and Caroline doing battle in a closely fought game on a tricky rink with Caroline taking her place in the final, winning 21-16.

Carole's semi-final opponent was none other than Oxford City & County's England International, Katherine Hawes and the pair produced a good contest which went the way of Carole 21-12, ensuring that Central will have the 2019 Women's County Singles Champion.
