NE League Finals – Sunday 25th September 2022

A good end to the season, as we hosted the North East League competition finalsĀ  with Redland interest in two of the comps.

The green, club and catering were all first class.

In the singles Jim against Ken Tudor (Olveston) traded shots early on, but as the pace quickened it seemed to suit Jim and he pressed home this advantage for a reasonably comfortable 21-11 win.

In the fours it was more fraught, a game of 5 quarters , but very entertaining for the spectators, we were up, we were behind, we were back up, we were drawing, and so it went into an extra end, the two leads not “dappingĀ one on” it was left to Will (number 2) to draw shot with his first wood 9 inches from the jack and that’s where it stayed, so we won 21-20.

An excellent day for all of our guys.

P.S. There was a debate as to whether Andy was more help to us with his bowling prowess or his bacon roll cooking, let’s just say the bacon rolls were very good!

Thanks to Wendy (for supervising Andy, tea making and bar) Pete in his capacity as Club President, Roger Jones and Kev for marking and Calvin for setting up the green.
