If you fancy the thought of playing Crown Bowls in October then the STOCKINGFORD AA Floodlight Pairs is ideal! Details attached…
We are now in the ‘last four games’ period for Midweek and Thursday means which there are restrictions on players from a higher division dropping down to a lower division (known as Rule 11).
If you have any questions relating to Rule 11 please contact your league secretary. Any breaches of the rule will result in the result being struck off and a walkover avoid to the opposition so it’s best not to take any chances!
The rule applies for the Saturday Leagues from matches in the week of the 12th of September.
It’s been a cracking start to the season with some great matches! Including the new Coventry & District Secretary meeting the North Midlands County Secretary in his first match – what are the chances?!
I hope you are enjoying the live update of scores – yes you can enter the result at the club house over a pint and have the tables and averages update instantly. If you have any problems or suggestions about the system just let me know via the ‘About’ page or contact the League Secretaries. All feedback is welcome (and encourged)!
All that is left to say is to wish you (belated) good wishes and luck for the new season whether you are a County bowler, a league bowler or just a casual bowler. I hope you enjoy our great sport in 2015 and beyond.
The final Mid-week games have been played and the tables are now up!
In Division 3, it was mission impossible for Alvis B, leaving Walsgrave C top of the table in this tight division. Lime Tree A finished the job in style in Division 2 after only finishing mid-table last season.
And finally, with a losses to 18, 19 and 20, Dunlop B couldn’t have been closer to claiming the Division 1 title, so it is congratulations instead to Cov Colliery A who seem to have turned some of their recent misfortunes into a positive outcome.
Well done all on a brilliant season!
There are still ten matches to come for Thursday but most of the divisional champions are now decided.
In Division 1 Stockingford romp home, winning 13 and a shot difference of +495, even though other teams (including the second place) have games to play.
It is a very similar story in Division 2 with Attleborough Sports head and shoulders above everyone with an even more impress +502 shot difference, winning 14 out of 16, winning by 32 points.
It was much closer in Division 3, but Lime Tree A can celebrate even though they still have a game to play! At the bottom of the table it is all to play for with Bedworth Ex just one point ahead of Newdigate B, each with a game to play. Newidgate have to visit Alvis A (who themselves could clinch second place) whereas Bedworth Ex host the league winners.
All to play for still in Division 4! Haunchwood B head Bulkington by 2 points but Walsgrave B are just a point further behind with agame in hand. IMportnaly they have a much better shot difference so actually need just three winners (with a loss of less than 110 shots) when they visit Lime Tree B. However Lime Tree need the points to lift themselves off the bottom – they have 3 games to play, being 4 points behind BBC C who have a game to play… at home to Lime Tree. Interesting…
In Division 5 it was a cracking three way battle throughout the season behind Coundon C, Albany and Walsgrave C. Despite a final match loss against Walsgrave C, Albany came out on top by 8 points with a shot difference of +544, winning 13 and drawing 1 (he says desparately attempting to maintain an air of neutrality..!)
Good luck in the remaining games. Hope you enjoy the chance to hit the green again before the winter shutdown.
