The midweek Munro Cup team returned to action after a five week absence, yesterday 25th June, when they made the very short trip over the bridge to the Murch, to face their nearest and dearest neighbours.

Dinas got off to a strong start, with Gareth Griffiths' rink prominent in the early exchanges, and after six ends they had established a 12 shot advantage, leading 28-16.

During the middle third of the game Captain Paul Marks and his rink really came to the fore, picking up 16 shots to power into a 17 shot lead, which they continued to build on, eventually recording a very impressive 32-9 shot victory.

Elsewhere, after an impressive first half performance, Griffiths' rink slowed, and even though they dropped seven shots in the final ends were still able to record a healthy eight shot 26-18 win. Club Chairman Neil Giles and his rink had a tough first nine ends and were level pegging at the half way stage at 5-5. Thereafter however they were able to take firm control of proceedings, winning seven of the last nine ends, to come home 19-9.

Dinas just missed out on a clean sweep, as, despite a strong finish, Alun Jones and his rink slipped to a narrow five shot defeat, leaving the final score at 88-52 to Dinas, who took 'home' 12 points.  

This win, the teams fourth on the bounce, lifts them up to fifth in the midweek league table, having garnered 58 points from their six games to date, and within touching distance of the league leaders.
