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.

Northern Counties 2018 Championships Updated

The Northern Counties 2018 Championships took place at Houghton Dairy Lane on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th August 2018 and results are shown (under read more).


Triples Round 3 Results

Round 3 of the triples was played tonight. It was a good evening for Gosforth, with the West Avenue club having 3 victories out of 3 so far (and now 4 out of 4 - with the last game eventually reported). Possibly the best result of the evening was the triple skipped by Collingwood's Alan Hall recording a great victory at Backworth's Paul Ging. 


Pairs Results

Round 3 of the pairs was completed tonight (Thursday). Both of the 2017 finalists Gosforth's Mick McGreevy and holders Chris Yeomans progressed, although Yeomans had to overturn a 13-1 deficit to advance to Round 4.


Reporting Results

Just a brief reminder on the reporting of results. All ties must be reported within 24 hours of the commencement of the tie. For pairs/triples/fours (including mixed pairs, senior 4's) all names must be written on the scorecard, along with the competition, i.e. Triples and the relevant tie number.

At the end of the game the scorecard must be signed by the losers.


County Singles Round 2

Monday night brought the conclusion of the County Singles 2nd round or for some going through the pain of watching England again!! There were no fewer than 6 former champions, including the current champion in action. The current holder Backworth Welfare's Paul Ging eased through, but for 3 of them it was a different story.
