Norley Make it a Hat-trick of Murphy Cup victories.
Last Thursday saw the final of the Murphy Cup held at Grapes Inn on Halton Road. Norley going for their third win in succession took on Hazel Pear, and what a final it turned out to be with Norley the victors by four chalks. Peter Illidge got the points moving for Norley with a 21-07 win followed by Mark Winnington also 21-07. However Hazel Pear fought back Paul Drinkwater and Phil Wingfield both winning 21-13. With the second four going on to the green the handicap had been reduced to 13 calks in favour of Hazel Pear. Fifth on the green for Norley Barry Ellams saw the lead reduced to one chalk after a 21-09 win, but Hazel Pear come racing back with a 21-11 victory for Connell Redmond. The seventh game was a very tight affair that saw Fred Worrall victorious 21-20 against Jimmy O’Brien, the last game on the green saw some excellent bowling from both players but the day belonged to Norley’s Chris Coral with a 21-07 win leaving Norley the winners by a mere four chalks. League Secretary Pat Crowe thanked Grapes Inn for the use of their facilities and both teams for a fantastic final. Pat was very disappointed by the lack of support for the leagues senior competition with just a handful of spectators showing up.

Third placed Castle completed a full house 126-168 victory at Helsby A, best winner on the night Elle Winnington 21-07. Hazel Pear extended their lead on the teams below them with a superb 168-76 win against Helsby C with no fewer than four players winning in single figures, leading the way Jimmy O’Brien 21-04 Connell Redmond 21-07, Joe Tomkinson and Adele Maddison both 21-09, that win made it a bad week for the Helsby teams.
