Bradley Park Bowling Club are very grateful to the following:-
Congratulations to Quarry who were crowned champions of the Bradley Winter Bowling League 2018/19 on Wednesday night. Last years winners, Ifton Miners, finished 2nd, with Magnum Force in 3rd. Click through on the left to see the full table. League chairman, Ray Barnes, hosted a presentation after the final matches and thanked everyone for taking part and playing in the right spirit. He also thanked all those who have helped him throughout the season, in particular Chris Nevitt and Brenda Jones (pictured below with Ray) who have been stalwarts in the "restaurant", serving everyone with tasty food and hot drinks on some very cold nights. He went on to thank his wife, Liz, who does a lot of unsung work behind the scenes. Brenda Jones, in her Welsh CGBA role, awarded the prize money to each team captain and is pictured presenting the trophy to Graham Rogers of Quarry.
Bradley Park Bowling Club recently won an award for the Club Organisation of 2019 at the Wrexham Borough Council Sports Awards. This is a great accolade for the club as these are prestigious awards that recognise individuals and organisations that contribute to the health and well-being of the local community. Pictured are some happy club members representing Bradley at the event.
One of the matches postponed from Wed 30th January, Llay v Bunbury, will take place tonight.
Tonights matches have been postponed due to the weather and snow covering the green, rearranged dates will be announced soon.
Bradley Bowling Club held a fundraising and presentation evening on Friday 21st December 2018 in aid of "Spot the Jack disability bowling club".
The club would like to thank everyone who supported the night, it was a great evening with acts Pete & Yvonne Shaw and Ioan Davies giving up their time for free. Various prizewinners from this seasons bowling stepped forward to collect their trophies and awards.
Thanks once again to Lisa Jones and the Cooperative Society for donating a fantastic hamper and food and to everyone else who kindly donated prizes and helped organise and run the evening. Along with those attending, you all contributed to raising over £500 on the night.
In total, Bradley Bowling Club has raised around £1,000 from both this presentation evening & the charity pairs competition and we are very proud that we are able to offer our facility to make charitable donations in this way.
A big thank you to everyone!
Good luck, good health and all the very best for 2019
The winners of the Sam Roberts Charity Pairs competition on Saturday 15th December 2018 were Kevin Francis and Tony Bellis, beating Steve Dace and Chris Jones in the Final.
Bradley Bowling Club and Hope House, the benefitting charity, would like to thank everyone who turned up to play and give their support, especially on such a cold and wet day.
We would also like to thank Lisa Jones and everyone from the Cooperative Society for sponsoring the event, along with all those who kindly donated prizes and helped out in any way.
£425 was raised for Hope House and a cheque has since been presented to their ambassador, John Matthews.
12th Team Means Fixture/Date Changes
A 12th team - Gresford Village - has entered the league and as a result, at this late stage, it was easier & quicker to regenerate the entire fixture list. The first weeks fixtures are unchanged but please look carefully after that as dates and fixtures have changed extensively.
The fixtures have also been arranged on the website so that the match listed first on any night gets 3 jacks, the second gets 2. This has been done fairly throughout the season. The fixture list will be pinned to the clubhouse noticeboard to make this clear.
The match between Bunbury and Gresford Village on Tues 25th September is to be rearranged.
Fixtures have been updated to include all Home & Aways for each team. They have also been spread out so that each team has 5 home and 5 away games in each half of the season, with no more than 2 consecutive home or away fixtures in either half.
This year, to fall in line with normal practice, THE AWAY TEAM HAS THE JACK.
The fixture list will be pinned to the noticeboard in the clubhouse and will indicate which fixture on each night has 3 jacks to start with and which fixture has 2.
If you have any problems with the website please contact Kevin Nugent, Bradley A Captain (details under Club Contacts).
For 2018/19 there are 11 teams. Fixtures start on Tue Sep 25th.
