Ona day when the weather could not have been better for bowls, this was almost the match that never was when both sides set out to play an away match. With Highworth players at the Wantage green, 5 minutes from the green or in and around Faringdon, the decision was taken to recall all back to Highworth and look to fulfil a match there, potentially without the after-match meal. Fortunately, Highworth members, Christine & Neil Biles, Maggie Jordan and Shaun Hicks responded to the situation and the meal was served up al fresco due a party taking place in the club at the time. For the record, this match should have been at Wantage and the return fixture in July will now take place at Wantage rather than Highworth.

The rain held off mainly thanks to a strong wind that blew throughout the afternoon and on a slow green the Highworth friendly team opened their season with a win. 9-year old Morgan Potter made his debut for Highworth and, despite the conditions, plugged away throughout, finishing on the winning side thanks to the efforts of Ian and grandad Stuart.
