Cammell Laird came from behind to defeat Port Sunlight Village & Works by 17 shots at Thingwall Bowling Club today. Port Sunlight started best with three of the first four jacks including a 21 - 10 from Port Sunlight's Mike Brannon. Going into the middle four Lairds trailed by 14 shots but although the four jacks were shared David Owen brought his team back into the game with an excellent 21 - 07. Port Sunlight still led by 3 shots going into the last four but when Rob Lewis pipped Mike Smethurst 21 - 17 Lairds had taken their first lead of the game by 1 shot. Geoff Stamp then turned in a game changing performance in what looked like a difficult game with Port Sunlight's Captain Nick Woodward with a 21 - 05 win that earned him the Man of the match award. Port Sunlight never recovered the defecit after that with the last two cards shared 21 -14 each.

Again thanks to both clubs for an excellent game and to Thingwall for making their green available and in great condition. Thanks also to referee Kye Gorman, Mo Evans for running the raffle and doing the refreshments and our Lady Chairman for running the sheet and keeping everyone in order. Full scores available on the Cup results link.

HESWALL RBL B WIN THE GEOFF CLARE TROPHY
Heswall RBL B won the Geoff Clare Trophy today by 5 shots in an exciting final at Cammell Lairds. Bebington Park had started well with a 21 - 7 win by John Burke but Heswall fought back taking the other three games to lead by four shots after the first four. With the jacks shared in the middle four including a 21 - 6 from Chris Wentworth Bebington Park had created a 10 shot lead going into the last four. Tania Gilfoyle then had an excellent 21 - 5 win and Malcolm Gilfoyle 21 - 13 to bring Heswall back into the game and led by 14 shots with two games left on the green. Gordon Ditchfield pulled the game back to 1 shot with a 21 - 8 win. The match came down to the last game on the green with Alan Davies of Heswall defeating Kevin McLaughlin 21-17 despite trailing for most of the game to eventually run out 21 - 17 winning the match by 5 shots.
I'd like to thanks both teams and their supporters for a match played in an excellent but competative spirit. Also thanks go to Cammell Laird for their hospitality and Mo Evans for doing a fantastic job with the raffle. Thanks also to referee Steve Dutfield and our Lady Chairman, Christina for officiating and leaving me to do very little. The Trophy was presented by our President, Dave Hulmston in the absence of Audrey Clare who we wish well as she has not been too well recently. Get well soon Audrey.
Below are some photos of the winners and runners up and the presentation of the Trophy. Full scores are on the Cup Match link above.
