The ‘B’ team in the East Beds League 5th division acquitted themselves well in the final of the East Beds Knockout Cup against 1st division Ampthill ‘A’ team. After a slightly nervous start Baldock recovered and with 4 ends to play on each rink they trailed by only one shot. The next end on both rinks proved disastrous and Ampthill ran out worthy winners by 12 shots.

The midweek team closed their season with two good wins, firstly against Henlow by 72 shots to 64 and then against Shephalbury by 91 shots to 62 thus reversing the defeat earlier in the season. The midweek team only lost 5 of their 37 fixtures.

The club travelled to Welwyn Garden City for their last friendly match of the season and won on only one of the four rinks but the margin on the top rink of Doug Nicholls, Steve Garrett, John Russell and John Murison was large enough for Baldock to win by 84 shots to 79.

Sunday saw the finals of the club competitions played in glorious sunshine with a good crowd of supporters. The men’s championship was again won fairly comfortably by Ian Greig but the ladies championship was a nail-biting affair with Shirley Page coming from 13 - 3 down to win 21-19.

The spotlight this week falls on the midweek team who had two away matches. On Tuesday they travelled to St Ippolytts but lost the match by 64 shots to 66. Better fortune prevailed on Thursday when they travelled to Letchworth Garden City and won by 67 shots to 55.

The club had only one match over the weekend which was away to Flitwick. The club put up a spirited performance to win on 3 of the 4 rinks for a total score of 93 shots to 69. Baldock’s top rink was John Tait, Alan Russell, Anne Graves and Dave Turner.

This coming weekend sees the last match of the regular season followed on Sunday by a massive competitive day. In the morning the East Beds League ‘B’ team, from the 5th division, play Ampthill ‘A’ from the first division in the final of the East Beds Knockout Cup. Sunday afternoon see the finals of the club competitions with play starting at 2pm and continuing into the early evening. Spectators are welcome at both events.
