NMBA Result
Markham Wright Pairs Competition
Cramlington Bowls Club
Sunday 24th July 2011

The bowling gods were kind to us yet again, as we were blessed with glorious weather for our Pairs competition. We had a good turnout of twelve teams competing, forming two leagues of six teams, each team playing 3 games.

After the two morning games we retired for lunch at The Hind pub, where we provided with what was a superb lunch. I think some of the brethren would have been happy to stay there for the rest of the afternoon but thankfully they returned for the afternoon game.

After all 3 games had been played, the results were very close, with 3 teams in each group having 4 points. However the deciding factor was on points difference. With W Bros. John Meikle and Edwin Price advancing from one group and W Bros. Alistair Bennie & Ernie Yorston from the other.

What followed was an excellent and close fought final. In an elevan end final, the scores were level, 5 all after nine ends. However Bros. Alistair and Ernie picked up the shots in the final 2 ends to eventually come out winners.

Can I thank all who turned up to play and support us in what was another excellent day? Thanks also to W Bro. Dave Moffett and his wife for providing an excellent lunch.
