BOWLING CLUB - Eardisland men bowlers bowed out of the Hereford Times Cup at the first hurdle, but could hold their heads high as they only lost to Ross, certainly the largest and arguably the strongest club in the county, by a narrow margin of seven shots. There were good wins for the rinks skipped by Tony Stokes and Jonathon Farndon, but they were not enough to balance out the crushing defeat experienced on the other rink. The club travelled to Bulmers on Sunday afternoon and enjoyed a second away victory of the season, 71 shots to 69. The best winning rink was Tony Stokes, who skipped Wendy Powell, Sheila Kruft and John Moses to an 11-shot win. On Wednesday evening the side enjoyed more success, winning 93-60 against Kington at the recreation ground. Eardisland had three winning rinks with Tony Stokes once again best rink, skipping Jayne Sharp, Doug Tantrum and John Moses.
