The weather held out on Father’s Day as Maidenhead Thicket hosted London Welsh for the very first time.
A match played in good spirits throughout was won 106-85 by London Welsh, with David Crooks, Pauline Tuttle and Terry Davies (skip) playing the top rink for the home side.
The visiting captain, Professor Andrew Thomas, praised all involved for a competitive game and fun afternoon and also presented Thicket captain Tom Hanks with the London Welsh plaque.
Both clubs now hope to make the game a regular one on the bowls calendar.
This weekend’s smart motorway closures on the M4 will be shorter than usual due to separate bridge works taking place in West Berkshire (Junctions 13-14)
