Frinton’s Harris Bowl Team vanquished their Maylands foes last week with a resounding 4 ½ to ½ win. The ever-present Frinton wind increased to near gale force for the match, which didn’t suit the visitors. All the matches were played in good spirits, insuring a pleasant day for the players and their caddies.
