Championship update - 16th August.

Pairs first round commenced at 9:30am where R Brown (AK) narrowly lost out with a 20-21 defeat to Hunts which came as a result of an extra end. Meanwhile K Proctor (BD) made quick work of Wilshire, progressing to round 2 with a 29-14 victory. Their success was short lived as they suffered a devastating 25-8 defeat against Somerset later that afternoon.

A day of rest for Northumberland Women tomorrow as their penultimate championship takes place 1pm on Saturday. Our Junior Pair duo R Cartwright (BD) and M Ross (G) face Cambridgeshire in their first round.

 
Championship update - 15th August.

S Carter (HX) continued in a blaze of glory, defeating Kent 16-10 which meant she faced Leicestershire in the last 16 for her place in the quarter finals. This tie proved to be her closest game yet as she was 2 down going into the last end, sadly it wasn't meant to be as she ultimately lost out 16-13. FANTASIC EFFORT!!
-----
In the afternoon R Brown (AK) put on a show for the spectators! 5 up with 2 ends to play and the Norfolk skip played an impressive shot to score 3 making it anyone's game going into the last end. Shots were againts when Ray came to play her penultimate bowl, this drew in for an amazing second. Norfolk failed to play the bowl out for the game which meant Ray could surrender her last bowl, therefore only dropping 1 to win the tie 21-20. They'll face Hunts tomorrow morning.
Also in action tomorrow are sisters K Proctor and R Cartwright (BD) as they take on Wiltshire.

League Update - Nines & Knight

Further to the previous notification on the Nines League; I can now advise the Nines League and fixtures have been resolved. There is now only 1 league consisting of 12 teams; due to this structure some games have been given a date of a Friday evening (early season) - these can be played on that evening or can be arranged. Furthermore to enable this 12 team structure to work, along with same clubs being in the Knight Cup, there has been subtle changes in Knight Cup Division 2, 3 and 4 from originally scheduled (change in numbering only). 

 

Mixed Pairs

The draw for the Bowls Northumberland Mixed Pairs competition (link) has now taken place. Apologies for delay in completing this, but there were queries that have now been resolved.
