Wiltshire 'Ashes' - Devizes BC v. Trowbridge CTBC
Well done to Trowbridge CTBC with a clear 4 - 2 win.
Although we lost by two matches it is worthy to note that a swing of just 3 IMPs on one match would have resulted in a draw between both teams.
The matches were played in a very friendly atmosphere and included a wonderful supper thanks to Chaz, Lucy and Emma and the evening was well orchestrated by Gerry our Director for the evening.
This was the 8th "Ashes" match since inception in 2011 and Trowbridge are now 4-3 ahead with one draw.
