24/05/2019 The travelling Timber Trundlers graced the green today with a touch of nostalgia with their wooden bowls. Their strength was evident with a 83 to 45 win over the gallant Cranborne.
14/06/2019 Today's visitors to the green are old friends Mere whose Westbrook League team are currently top of the table. With the recent cancellations of the Verwood and Moordown matches (at their request) and the very poor response for members to play at Romsey (only 2 names) causing yet another cancellation, let us hope the match against Mere goes ahead. It is very sad to see the Cranborne captain let down so pitifully and members are asked why have they joined a sports club only to not play ! Let us turn the corner today and support YOUR club.
17/06/2019 A competitive match was enjoyed against Mere who always provide strong opposition. Although Cranborne lost 2 rinks to 1, it was a close contest on two rinks with the final result being decided on the last end on both. Scores - Cranborne 41 Mere 59. Nevertheless a pleasing performance for the club members. Next up is the trip to Ferndown on Friday 21st June, with a full team and a reserve bowler available for the match.
17/06/2019 The match against Swanmore on June 26th has been cancelled.
21/06/2019 The result of the club's visit to Ferndown resulted in victory for the home team 93 shots to 54. Next match up is at home against Pelhams on Monday 24th June.
24/06/2019 In welcome warm conditions, Cranborne played well at home against a strong Pelhams team with the rinks equally divided at 2-2 with the shot count being Cranborne 62 Pelhams 65, a good result against a large club.
30/06/2019 Playing on a Sunday in pleasant conditions, the team had a great result against Lyndhurst winning on all three rinks with a shots for total of 63 and a shots against total of 43. A very satisfactory result.
05/07/2019 The first friendly in July away to Verwood resulted in a 2-2 draw on rinks although the hosts ran out winners on shots 65 to 48. Nevertheless, a pleasing performance.
22/07/2019 With the Moordown match and the Wingreen tournament not taking place, the team traveled to Wimborne. Although the home team won on the 4 rinks - 2 were only decided by one shot. Final match score 44 to 83 against.
23/07/2019 With news of the results of Sunday's Presidents Shield awaited, today we welcome the team from Sherfield English, who travel to us from near Romsey.
24/07/2019 News of the Presidents Shield held last Sunday is that the winners were Tony Busby and Geoff Adams. Runners up to them were Paul Waite and John Mills. Well done to all who participated in the competition. Pat Dommett, the President, donated all the prizes.
