Gresford Colliery won their home game against Houldsworth Working Men's Club at Gresford Colliery in the Arthur Land memorial Super Cup by 26 points in the home leg tie.
It was on a four home four away basis and is 31 up and as shown when they played against the Cunliffe a few weeks ago they are a very good team, especially on their home green where they have the likes of Dean Ferris, Lee Turner, Tommy Johnstone and Andy Murray at their disposal for the second leg, all seasoned county players.
The Away leg is to be played on Friday 31st July at Houldsworth.
Any support at the away game would be most welcome.
Can all clubs please adhere to the below rule, as delays cause a lot of trouble with regards to putting together reports to the newspaper.
The home Team must upload the result to the results web site within 24 hrs following the match and the winning Team in cup matches must also upload the result by the following day. Clubs failing to get the results in on time will be fined £10.
* W G Roberts Handicapped Cup *
Cunliffe A & Ponciau Park will contest the final of the WG Roberts charity handicapped cup, after Cunliffe beat Esclusham A and Ponciau over come Esclusham B in the Semi-Finals.
With the handicaps there have been some close matches throughout this competition this year, notably in the Prelim Round Gresford Colliery B beating New Broughton by just 6 points, Gresford Village A beating Garden Village B by 8 points, and Ponciau Park just beating Gresford Colliery A by 3 points in the Quarter-Final are amongst quite a few close games.
Although there have been some misgivings about the handicaps, they did encourage more teams to enter this competition than usual which then made the games more interesting and will also end up making more money for the chosen Charities.
The final of this cup will be held at Esclusham B.C. on Friday 21st August and should also be a close affair with Cunliffe A needing to make up 65 points and the result could go either way.
*** The venues for the next rounds of the WG Cup and the Cyril Adams County Cup can be found in the cup/fixtures tab to the left.***
Please remember that postponed matches should be played within 14 days if reasonably possible.
Just a reminder, that it is the responsibility of the winning team to put the result onto the web site in cup matches ASAP.
