SOLIHULL Municipal Bowls Club have enjoyed the highlight of the season so far at Whitnash, followed by great disappointment two days later at Kings Heath.

The Muni were drawn away to Whitnash in The Wardrop Top Club Cup, and did not expect to be successful, but having been encouraged to enjoy the game, come what may, the club’s 11 representatives clearly enjoyed themselves very much.

Club Chairman Geoff Wyatt fell 10-1 down to John Loveridge after seven ends of the two wood singles, but recovered to 16-8 after sixteen ends. Geoff was staring defeat in the face at 19-15 after 25 ends but six unanswered shots over the last five ends saw Wyatt return with a wonderfull win.

Muni Secretary, John Bentien came up against double Warwickshire champion Dan Ward in the four woods singles and found the green very difficult to read. John was 8-3 down after nine ends but took eleven shots from the next five ends to turn the tables and then to control the pace of the game to take a super surprise success by 21-16 on the 23rd.

The Muni are at home to Bilton from Rugby in the second round.
