Congratulations to the B team for their win at home on Wednesday 20th July against Dursley B. All three rinks won, Arthur by 25-10, Rob by 31-12, and Bob by 40-8. A total of 96-30 in shots and 10-0 in points. Well done to all the players.

Unfortunately, the B team fixture on Tuesday 19th July away at Nailsworth B was postponed until August.

The A team was comprehensively outplayed at home on Tuesday 19th July by Victory Park A. The opposition quickly got to grips with the artificial playing surface and dominated two of the three rinks, with only Roy's rink offering some resistance. Malmesbury A lost 10-0 on points and 71-25 on shots. Victory Park A demonstrated the standard of play and skill that Malmesbury A has to achieve to win Division 1 of the Cotswold League. Malmesbury A should finish mid-table but the team has to travel to Cam Mills A and play Fairford A the division leaders at home before the final position is determined.

In the National Singles, on Friday 22nd July, Alan will play M. Woolford from Chippenham Park and Gary will play Tim. If they win, they will play on Monday 25th July at home, together with Paul.

In the County Over 60s triples, Brian's Triple is at home to Marlborough and John's Triple is away at Devizes this weekend.

Next week, Malmesbury B is away at Fairford C on Tuesday 26th July whilst Malmesbury A has a bye week in the Cotswold League.

Finally, do not forget to sign for the Club Competitions for 2022.
