Top Club win for Men

Top Club win for Men

Highworth Men overcame Westlecot A in round 2 of the National Top Club competition. Playing at Westlecot the men got off to the best possible start with a win for Richard Young in the 2 Woods against John Thomas. 

The triples of Kieron Pollock, Stuart Murray and Tom Walkley gained the upper hand in their game after a close first few ends and were always in control to close out the second point for Highworth. 

The pairs of Kevin Brown and Shaun Hicks struggled throughout their game and conceded after 14 ends to hand Westlecot their first point. 

At this time the rinks and singles were very close and could have gone either way. However, Keith Latimer, Chris Mussen, Chris Davis and Gary Willis held firm on a very tricky rink, riding their luck at times, to close out the win to bring the final point Highworth needed for the victory. 

At this point Tom Pittuck and his opponent Robbie Ferguson formerly of Wanborough agreed a draw in the Singles to leave Highworth winners 3.5 to 1.5 and a game against Westlecot B in Round 3.
