After a good start to their Municipal League 1 season, Romilly were away to Gelli Park in the Rhondda who, in previous seasons, have always proved difficult to beat.

But, with confidence high, the ‘Rom’ responded to an early five-shot deficit to take a two-shot lead into the second half. With the weather remaining good, Romilly produced some excellent bowls and, by the 15th end, led by 16 shots with three rinks

ahead. Maintaining their form for a superb victory, Romilly took 12 out of 14 points.
