Muras Cup Defeat

Northumberland's Muras Cup team narrowly went down to defeat in their opening game of the season against Cumbria at Dalston this afternoon. The game was delicately poised throughout with both after 5 and 10 ends the sides could not be seperated - with 28 all (at 5) and 54 all (at 10). However, over the last few ends Cumbria took a slender lead and ran out 106 to 92 winners (with rink scores being 6 - 16).


Mixed Pairs Dates

The Mixed Pairs Dates in the Yearbook only for rounds 3 and 4 are incorrect. The dates should read as follows: -

Round 3 By 21 June

Round 4 By 5 July

The dates published on the website are correct and have always been this way . Apologies for any confusion this may have caused.


Edwardson Cup Update

Backworth Welfare remained on course for a hat-trick of titles with a good win away at Collingwood. They will will now face another tricky away tie at Walker BC.

The next stage of the Jubilee Cup will take place on Sunday 20th May - at Benfield and Cramlington. The group winners from stage 1 at Benfield were Cramlington B and Newbiggin A, and now take there places at Cramlington on Sunday. The winners of group C and D staged at Cramlington were Benfield and St. Georges - and again they will take there places at Benfield on Sunday.


Player Registration Reminder

Just a brief reminder that all players must registered for your respective clubs - this process is normally done through the membership lists/payments that were sent to the BNMS Treasurer in October. Any players that maybe new to your club or perhaps have moved clubs, then these cases must be registered before playing in any league games for their respective clubs.
