Connaught drew at Weeting on 31st July 2018 by shots 45 – 52 and points 4 – 4

RINK 1  P Wilson, J Moon and J Overton won by 22 shots to 12. This was a very difficult green but we found it after a slow start and all had good woods to win by 11 ends.

RINK 3  J Moss, B. Moss and T Shoebridge won by 15 shots to 11. A tight game all the way through, but a good performance to win 11 ends.

RINK 5   M Eades, C Smith  and A Sopp  lost by 8 shots to 29. A night to be forgotten on a green that was very heavy for our team, played on by a strong Weeting team, only winning on 6 ends.

A bit of a disappointing result but we go into the final game 7 points ahead of Watton so must not lose by 8-0 to win promotion.
