League Merit Finals
The league finals will be next Sunday 10th September at Nercwys. Each team in the league is entitled to send their merit winner or one representative to the finals. The current holder Geraint Roberts (Caerwys) is also eligible to enter. Last year 50 teams sent representatives and it would be nice to see a similar number this year.
Scratch time is 10:30 but please try to be at the green by 10:00 if possible so we can get started on time. If anyone wants to confirm their attendance in advance you can text me on 07768 582849 or email me at email@example.com.
Refreshments will be available all day, starting with bacon baps and sausage baps from 9:30am. There is limited seating at the green so you may want to bring your own chairs.
Selwyn Roberts Charity Cup
Esclusham B (Div 3) met Coedpoeth (Div 4) in the final of the Selwyn Roberts Charity Cup final at Rhydymwyn on Tuesday 22 August. Although Coedpoeth played well, they were no match for Esclusham B on the night. The whole team, but particularly the youngsters, all bowled extremely well and were deserving winners. Commiserations to Coedpoeth who have had an excellent season and possibly would have hoped for a better result.
Sid Hall Cup
Cunliffe A were on top form when they met Gresford Colliery in the final of the Sid Hall Cup on Thursday 24 August at Treuddyn. The Colliery played well but struggled to find their best game. Cunliffe A were worthy winners, taking the cup for the third successive year.
John Ledger Shield
Well done to Cunliffe B who had a decisive win over Aston A to claim the second division John Ledger Shield on Tuesday 15 August at Cilcain. Aston A struggled to find their best form on the night and Cunliffe were ahead from the start. Full results on the fixtures page.
Congratulations to Esclusham B who beat Gate Hangs High to claim the
third division Cambrian Shield on Tuesday 8 August at Coed Talon.
Details of the match and full results are on the fixtures page or
competition link above.
Congratulations to Flint who narrowly defeated Hoole Park in an excellent final on Tuesday 1 August at Argoed.
Hoole Park won the first four games and it looked like it was going to be a one-sided match. However, Flint rallied to take three of the next four games. Game ten gave Flint their forth win, but more importantly they pulled back a lot of the aggregate points, leaving the teams Flint 154 to Hoole Park 153. The match came down to the result of the ninth game between Peter Brown from Flint and John Evans from Hoole. It was a tight game with some excellent bowling, from which Peter came out victorious. The final match result was Flint 6 (175) - Hoole Park 5 (167).
Fred White Trophy
Well done to Rhydymwyn who beat Penyffordd B, on Tuesday 25 July at Aston, in a match that was neck and neck until the final two games. At one point the teams were four games all with just four points in the aggregate. The full details of the match result can be found on the Comps tab above.
Captains are reminded that dress code applies for the finals (collared shirts and black trousers) and that to be eligble to play in the final of a cup, a player must have played at least three league games for that team.
Please check the Comps tab above or the Fixtures lists for the dates and venues of these cup finals and it would be great if people not involved could come along to show their support and create more of an atmosphere.
