Middlesex "Liberty" team suffered heavy defeat, to a very strong "Surrey Liberty" playing at home. By the wide margin of 81 shots to 143 shots. The Surrey team grew in confidence as the match progressed, and ran out worthy winners. No excuses, and good luck to them in the next round of the competition.
The loss of 6 "Senior Players" impacted greatly on team selection! How-ever this gave an opportunity to 6 "Liberty" debutants to show their skills on the day. All performed well, and a special mention must go to debutants, Eddie Carnihan and Geoff Lawrence. Neither was on a losing rink.
Top Rink was Colin Mason, Allister Frankland, Geoff Lawrence, and Andy Law who won by 18 shots to 16 shots.
Keep smiling everyone, and enjoy your bowling.
Middlesex C.I.B.A. Team Manager.
