Latest noticeboard: Weekly Round Up   - by Dennis Skayman

I will start this week's round up with a look at the Egham Quarter Final.
South Shield v Lincoln IBC played at New Earswick on Sunday 14th January
South Shields' started the stronger after a few ends on the board had moved into a 12 shot lead.
After 5 ends a couple of Lincoln rinks found the pace of a much slower green than we are used to and had pulled back to overall to 6 shots behind.
After 8 ends and the Lincoln rinks shortening the length of the jack pulled back to level across the board.
The next few ends the game changed one way and then the other as each rink completed the ends, with two Lincoln rinks pulling further ahead on shots and the other two dropping as many the game was too close to call.
Then suddenly all Lincoln players found weight and line at 12 ends Lincoln had gained a lead advantage of 14 shots.
As the room erupted with shouts of Shields' Shields' it spurred their team on to have a mini rally and at 14 ends across the board Lincolns lead was down to 6.
Our boys and girls dug in deep with 2 rinks finish and 2 with one end each to play South Shield conceded the game with the score at 79 shots to 63.
Yes yes the cry from the Lincoln followers a place in the semi finals v Victory (Portsmouth) on Sunday 5th March at neutral venue Riverain IBC (Hitchen).
One or two of the Lincoln players on the losing rinks were a bit disappointed when leaving the green on the way they had played.
Remember these games are a team effort a semi final spot doesn't come round many times, the next game they will be the ones drawing the shots or hitting the head when it matters , or even better still all players find the line and weight and don't forget that bit of luck.
At Lincoln were all in it together.
All players hold your heads high and well done also thanks to the band of travelling support bring on the semis.
Special mention and thanks to New Earswick for holding the game.
