Triples 2nd December

 Today we had 2 teams enter the Triples, David Herbert, David Edwards & Paul Williamson along with the team of John Marshall, Phil Bradley & Scott Naylor. The round robin stages were hard fought with John, Phil & Scott just failing to progress further. This was a good showing for John's team as Phil only started to bowl with us in September, and Scott having started last season and this being his first taste of competitions.

The 2 Davids and Paul had a good run playing several of the top teams and eventually reached the Final where they came up against the England trio and last years winners of Lee & Bronagh Toleman and Lawrence Moffat who had only dropped 18 shots in their previous 7 matches.    The match went to the last end with the Fenton team being 2 shots down as they started, but with Fenton holding 3 shots and Lee having the final wood, he chose to fire but missed the head leaving Fenton with 3 shots and the winners at 6-5.

David Herbert, David Edwards & Paul Williamson are now the NYSMBA Triples County Champions, and have qualified for the Northern Championships to be held at Barnard Castle in March.

Various photos from the competitions can be seen on the Photo Gallery.
