Ladies’ over 60’s 10 June
After a fortnight off play resumed in the Trend sponsored over 60’s ladies’ league on Tuesday 10 June. Onchan A were top scorers winning five games the only fly in their ointment being Brenda Williams who took a game off them to prevent the full house. The Villa girls all reached double figures to give them a respectable score. Onchan B had a closer encounter with Douglas ending level on games and winning by just 2 points. The outstanding game of the match being Wendy Cowin’s 21-20 win against Joyce Gardiner. It was just as close at Peel where Sunset had a 2 point advantage over Marown in a lower scoring match. Noble’s Mixed had a good win, 4-2 on games with Lin Ruscoe and Josie Harding winning to single figures, with Pearl Quinn and Roma Ware being the winners for the home side, while Mooragh Park also won 4-2 at Ballaugh. Good wins by Ann Gale and Jenny Maddrell for the visitors kept the home team’s score down. The other game of the morning saw a 4-2 victory for Castletown, with Marie Ashurst winning to single figures as did the two winners, Gwen Tuck and Voirrey Curphey for Port Erin. By contrast Sue Peach was taken all the way by Sylvia Shelbourne before coming through 21-20.
