A sound run of form has seen Gallow (Fakenham) Ladies A team close the gap to safety in the County Triples Premier League table.
They hosted North Walsham A, and a convincing win saw them take seven points, only dropping one. Shots total was 53-42. Best block, once again, was that of Pam Frary, Maureen Leverett and Louise Hannant winning 13-6.
Two days later the team secured another good win at Yarmouth, gaining seven more valuable points. Best block was skipped by Pam Whitehead, ably backed up by Rita Goold and Daphne Ramm. Overall shots score 77-35.
The team are now battling with Wymondham Dell, North Walsham and Diss to avoid the third relegation place as it looks as though Roundwood and Yarmouth are already destined for the drop.
Meanwhile, the Ladies B team secured their first win of the season versus Pentney 72 shots to 34, scoring seven points. Wendy Wilkinson’s block won 24-7, other winning skips were Goold and Kathy Sheppard.
This Saturday saw the team at top of the table Dereham where they lost 8-0.
Some of their matches have been very close but not close enough to gain the points required to keep them off the bottom of the Wensum League but their confidence is improving, a good sign for the rest of the season.
Many players have been involved in national competitions with great success. Pam Frary and Louise Hannant won the Area Final of the pairs competition to reach the last 32 and Cheryl Lincoln, Mollie Bowyer and Pam Whitehead lost in the Triples to a Norfolk Bowling Club trio skipped by England International Becky Field. Pam has also reached the last 32 of the O60’s Singles. She now meets the current holder of the national title, Carol Baker who comes from Diss, in the next round.
