St Albans held a mixed triples round robin competition on Sunday.

The winners were the ladies captain Jacy Farrer, Richard Griffiths and Andy Thomas with the runners-up Pauline Gardiner, Colin Orchard and Nick Reynolds.

Tricia Gascoine played Harpenden’s Linda Newby in the first round of the district singles competition.

It was a very tight contest with the lead changing hands several times during the game. Gascoine won the penultimate end and led 19-18.

On the 26th and last end, Newby had two shots sitting on the jack and needing one more shot to win.

Gascoine made a valiant attempt to move the jack to no avail and Newby came in with her last bowl to win the game 21-19.
