Madeira staged an interesting encounter when they played hosts to the playing members of the English Bowls Umpires’ Association.

Post tea, the visitors continued to out-score the hosts and, having led by twenty shots at the three-quarter stage, they were pegged back slightly over the closing ends to win 121-103 (18+).

The best performing Madeira rink was that of Mavis Mears, Betty Roberts, Keith Ewins and skip John Flockhart who by 11 shots.
