A sterling performance keeps us in the promotion hunt
Another fine away performance saw the men to a 51-39 victory against Sunningdale B on Wednesday (Aug 11) and the eight points keeps us in the promotion places for a chance to play in the top tier.
Winning on two rinks, with the third losing by just a shot, showed our battling spirit came through to play well on Sunningdale's tricky green.
Our top rink was Trevor Dobson, Gregg Scott & Derek Spence (skip) who won by seven shots.
A disappointing setback against division leaders
Our team suffered disappointment in losing on all three rinks away to highflyers Windsor & Eton B on Thursday (June 28) - especially as we were on top in two rinks right up to the end.
Winning ways continue
A close game but a battling finish from Alan Dell's rink with Graham Sinclair, Tony Britton, secured an 8pts-2 win over Windsor Great Park.
Although that was a losing rink, pulling back to reduce the shots difference gave us the victory and the bonus points. The result means we are still vying for top spot with Windsor & Eton B, who with their result are ahead of us on shots difference.
Winning rinks were: Rink 1: John Isaacs, Alan Diver and Ian Smith 21-14 and
Rink 2: Paul Lester, Mike McLachlan and Trevor Dobson 20-13.
Full points makes us front runners again
A brilliant 81-30 home victory against Maidenhead Town C saw our team back on top of the division again.
In taking all ten points, top rink honours went to John Isaacs, Mike McLachlan and skip Alan Dell who stormed to a 36 shots to 5 win.
The result meant our team has won six out of the seven games so far, and with Maidenhead Town B collecting only six points at home to Desborough B, Wraysbury are ahead by two points at this stage.
Our KLV team back on the winning trail
After last week's reverse to Desborough which spoiled our winning run of four unbeaten games, our team swept to a comprehensive victory to take all ten points away to Maidenhead Thicket B on Friday (June 8).
Top rink was Paul Lester, Trevor Dobson and skip Andy Doughton winning 19-11.
But it was some tremendous last end magic from Derek Spence's team (with Trevor Woodham and Ken Spears) to pick up four shots and turn around a three shots deficit, which clinched the clean sweep.
Despite maximum points, Wraysbury still remain in second place, as top side Windsor & Eton B also secured ten points away at Maidenhead Town C.
Winning run brought to an end
The winning run of four on the trot had to come to end and it did, away to Desborough B 57-37 on Friday (Jun 1).
Our players found it tough, but picked up two points with one winning rink, thanks to Trevor Dobson, Dave Harrel and Ian Smith who took their match 12-11.
And then a fourth victory
Wraysbury took all three rinks in a comprehensive 69-39 win against Sunningdale B at home on Friday (May 25) - a result that gave us 10 points and saw us remain on top of the table.
A great all-round effort, with best rink of the day being Tony Britton, Mike McLachlan and Andy Doughton who won 29-10.
A great start to the season - winning three on the bounce
The Men's team got their Berkshire KLV League campaign off to a great start -
played three... won three, putting Wraysbury on top of the division.
The opener was away on grass at Windsor Great Park and we took the match on a narrow 43-42 shots margin but won 2 rinks to 1 and securing 8 points.
It was a good result on a tricky green. Top rink was Fred Parsons, Gregg Scott & Ian Smith (16-9).
This was followed by another close but hard fought 54-52 home victory against the Windsor & Eton 'B' team. Leading the way was our only winning rink of Graham Sinclair, Dave Harrel & Alan Dell (26-7).
But a second rink win was denied to Fred, Alan Diver & Derek who, leading by four into the last end, suffered a single shot defeat with a devastating last bowl from their skip to wipe out our positions. But it was a 6pts-4pts result.
The result of the third round KLV match against Windsor and Eton 'C'
was a 60-43 home win for Wraysbury .
This match was originally scheduled to be our away match but, due to the clash with the royal wedding preparations, the two fixtures were switched around with league approval. Leading the way to our 2-1 rinks victory and 8 points were Tony Britton, Mike McLachlan and Andy Doughton who won by 30 shots to 10.
