2017 Championship Finals

Please note the Championship Finals have been moved to Gosforth BC

As many of you will be aware St Georges BC will be competing in the BE Two Fours on Sunday 30th July and therefore felt that they could not facilitate this event.

Club Two Fours

St Georges BC are through to the fifth round following their 19 shot win over Gosforth. Rink scores: R Kier, A Docherty, N Aitchison & D Parkes bt M Cymber, S Harvey, S Richardson & C Cooper 21-10; D Bennett, P Lawson, K Jameson & G Myerscough bt M Bennett, J Minto, P Harvey & C Yeomans 20-12. St Georges now play Heaton Hall (Lancashire) with the winners of this tie qualifying for the National Finals.

Edwardson Cup

Backworth Welfare retained their title with a 13 shot win over Fossway this afternoon (Sun 9th July) at Ponteland B.C. In their quest to lift the title for the first time Fossway could not have made a worse start, trailing by 21 shots to 4 after only 4-ends. Not down hearted though, they fought their way back into the game and with only 4-ends remaining they had cut the deficit to 5 shots. Backworth then rallied and scored 7 shots across the board to secure the title for a seventh time.

County Finals 2017

Important: All County finals will now be played at Gosforth  (West Avenue). This is due to St. George's recent success is the BE two fours.

Full schedule to be posted early next week.


2 and 4 Bowl Singles

 And your finalists are....


Pairs Championship

2016 champions Josh Minto & Chris Yeomans (G) are through to the semi-finals following an 8 shot win over Ronnie Kier & Karl Jameson (ST). Standing between them and qualification to the National Finals will be Portland's Gren Richardson, who had a 19-16 success over Craig Cooper (G). The other semi-final will see Jack Miller up against club colleague Mick McGreevy, following their victories over Paul Ging (BW) and Philip Harvey (G) respectively.


Fours Championship

St Georges Neil Aitchison & Co took full avantage of a home tie with an emphatic 23-1 win over Gosforth's Brian Duall and are now one win away from qualifying for Leamington Spa. Their opponents in the semi-finals will be Hexham Elvaston's Darren Cooper.


Top Club

Northumberland's only remainining contender St Georges BC were eliminated today by Dipton BC by a scoreline of 3-2. Darren Parkes was successful in the 4-wood singles as was Neil Aitchison in the Triples. The game rested on the outcome of the Pairs, and with 5-ends remaining there was a need for Dan Bennett & Gary Myerscough to overturn a 5 shot deficit, but unfortunately it was not to be.


Alsop Cup Triumph

The Alsop team bounced back from their narrow defeat to Durham a week earlier by defeated Title favourites Cumbria by 2 shots this afternoon. However with just two winning rinks Northumberland picked up only 14 of the 22 match points available. A total which still leaves them as outsiders to win the title.



Middleton Joy but agonising defeat in the Alsop

Northumberland defeated Cumbria by 12 shots in the Middleton today (17th June) and collected 16 of the 22 match points and head the Group with one fixture remaining, away to Lincolnshire in 3-weeks time. In the Alsop we narrowly lost to Durham (2 shots) despite winning on 4 of the 6 rinks.
