A FOURTH successive home game for North Mymms saw East Barnet Valley come to Welham Green for a mixed triples match and take home the spoils by 69 shots to 62.

The rinks were shared two apiece, with Mymms' successes coming from Sue Maynard, Tony Wordsworth and David Braid by 19 shots to 10 and Peter Stokes, Pat Woods and Duncan Race, who were triumphant 20-16.

Away at last, the Welham Greeners travelled to de Havilland, who were only able to field three rinks.

For the ladies, the four of Diann Howell, Iris Hall, Joyce Barson and Rose Parkinson lost 21-14, but the men triumphed by a massive 60 shots to 11.

Brian O'Neill, Alan Barth, Derek Hall and Arthur Kenyon took their rink 34-4 and Geoff Matthews, Martin Barson, Alf Valentine and Peter Stokes won 26-7.

Earlier in the week Mymms had the pleasure of entertaining Barnet Blind & Partially Sighted in their annual encounter and were pleased to be asked to field an extra rink.

An enjoyable mixed triples contest ensued with the visitors winning one rink and losing on the other three.

Hopefully, the men will be able to maintain their good early form when they visit Hemel Hempstead tomorrow (Thursday) for their first St Albans & District League match.
