JUBILANT John Cooper and his team were celebrating on Saturday night after they sneaked a memorable victory over May & Baker at Parsloes Park, but it proved to be the one ray of sunshine on a disappointing day for Plashet Park.
Cooper and his team of George Gale, Ken Carter and Alan Hogwood were neck and neck with the May & Baker rink of J Fergie jnr, B and G Driscoll and skip T Hatch, until Cooper grabbed the shot on the final end for an excellent 17-16 victory.
In the end it mattered little as the other two rinks in this East Ham & District League clash were lost.
Peter Chilkes' rink of Frank Adams, Ted King and Harry Morley were certainly holding their own for much of their clash with H Gammark, H Constable, J Fargie and skipper K Trimmer, but a disastrous end 16 which saw May & Baker grab four precious shots proved decisive.

Plashet never recovered from the setback and in the end, went down 28-19.
The other rink were always playing catch-up against a solid May & Baker team of J Mead, J Burell, K Newberry and skipper H Woolward.
