Another bowling season is again nearly coming to an end with only a handful of matches left to play in all leagues.

 

Saturday Coast League. 

The A team have since the last report have lost 3/9 away at Blaenau, won 8/4 at home to Llanrwst, lost 5/7 away to Conway and drawn 6/6 home to St Asaph A. Over the last few weeks captain Keith Bailey has been struggling to field a team and has been thankful, especially against St Asaph A, to Ken Parry and Hefin Jones for turning out. 

The A team are currently equal 3rd place in the league on 119 points and Barry Harris is lying 2nd in the league aggregates after 18 games having won 16 and lost 2 with an aggregate of plus 159. 

The B team have beaten Highbury 8/4 at home, lost 3/9 to Rhuddlan away, beaten St Asaph B 9/3 at home and finally beaten Bala 7/5 away. 

The B team are currently after 18 matches lying second in the league on 135 points 13 points behind top team Highbury on 148 points. Brian Begley is 4th in the league aggregates having played 18 won 14 and lost 4, with an aggregate of plus 151. Ken Thomas is in 8th spot having played 18 won 13, lost 5 and with an aggregate of plus 99. 

The B team also beat Conwy B in the semi final of the May Ashenden Saturday Knockout Cup 249/181 (including the handicap). Unfortunately they lost in the final against the Colwyn Bay British Legion on Friday 12th August by 227/208 (including the handicap). To be fair, the choice of the supposedly neutral green heavily favoured the Legion with at least two of their players being ex Conway players. But anyway congratulations to the B team on reaching the final and winning £ 150.00 in prize money for the club.

 

Tuesday Super League.

The Super League team have since the last report lost 4/6 away to Llanrwst, won 6/4 home to Conway, lost 4/6 away to Gresford, won 8/2 home to Abergele, lost 0/10 away to Esclusham and finally beaten Rhos Park 7/3 at home.

 

The team are currently equal 3rd in the league after 19 games on 99 points. Barry Harris is 2nd in the league aggregates having played 19 games, winning 16, losing 3 with an aggregate of plus 96. John Short is in third spot having won 15 lost 4 and an aggregate of plus 114.

 

Also must congratulate John Short on winning the Hwfa and Beryl Roberts Memorial Open Singles Competition on the 17th July, beating Jason Jones 21/20 in the final.

 

Monday Night League.

 

Since the last report the team have beaten Llanfair 6/4 at home, lost 2/8 away to Bangor, beaten Caernarfon 7/3 away, beaten Menai Bridge 9/1 at home and beaten the Llanfair Acadami 8/2 away.

 

The team are currently 6th in the league with the winners likely to be Penygroes or Llangefni who the team have to play at home over the next few weeks. Bangor were in contention but on a matter of "principal" decided to concede their rearranged match at home to Penygroes giving them the 10 points. 

 

Wednesday Night League.

 

The A team have since the last report lost 4/8 at home to Llanfair A, beaten Caernarfon 8/4 away, beaten the B team at home 8/4 and lastly beaten Benllech 9/3 away.

 

The team are effectively going to finish second in the league behind Llanfair A with only one game to play. Ken Thomas is 1st in the aggregates having played 9 and winning 9 with an aggregate of plus 62. 

 

In the two legged final of the Festival Cup the A team lost on the combined aggregate by 3 points 238/241. After the first match the team were down by 13 points 163/176 and with every hope of overcoming the deficit at home. However the playing conditions were horrendous with rain and a gale force wind and the team could only manage a 175/165 aggregate win. The last hope was for Derek Stanley who had to win the last match or at least lose by 19/21, but after being 4/17 down he came back to 15/17 before his opponent went on to win. The club received a losers cheque of £22.50. 

The B team have only played two matches, losing 4/8 home to the A team and losing 2/10 away to Llanfair A

 

The Veterans League.

 

Since the last report the A team have beaten Penmaenmawr 8/1 away, beaten Bethesda 9/0 at home, lost 2/7 away to Craig y Don, beaten Llandudno B 7/2 at home, beaten Caernarfon 7/2 away and Criccieth 6/3 at home.

The team are second in the league behind Llandudno A. D T Evans is on top of the aggregates having played 17 games, winning 16 and losing 1 with an aggregate of plus 156. Ken Thomas is also in top ten having played 17 winning 12, losing 5 and an aggregate of plus 60.

 

The B team have lost 3/6 away to Craig y Don B, beaten Menai Bridge 7/2 at home, beaten Llanfairfechan 6/3 away, beaten Gwyngyll 8/1 at home, beaten Dinas 5/4 at home and finally beaten Dwygyfylchi 6/3 away. 

The team are currently in second spot in Division 2 on 106 points only one point behind leaders Llanfair PG. Robin Davies is 3rd in the aggregates having played 16 winning 15 and losing 1 with an aggregate of plus 154. Trevor Ashenden is in 9th spot having played 13 games winning 11 and losing 2 with an aggregate of plus 91. 

On other matters must again congratulate the B team on reaching the final of the Glynne Owen Knockout Cup Final at Blaenau Ffestiniog . Unfortunately they lost the combined aggregate 155/135 to Caernarfon but again won £30.00 for the club. 

Congratulations also to Adam Harris who reached the last 64 of the 101st All England Championship, this year held at the Llay B C in Wrexham on the 30th July. Unfortunately Adam lost 12/21 in the first round to Shropshire's Andy Moss who went on to lose in the final 21/18 to Mattie Gilmour from Merseyside.

Finally as a number of club members will have noticed the condition of the Bowling Green has deteriorated dramatically over the last few weeks. After making a donation request to the Beaumaris Town Council, they have now kindly agreed to donate £600.00 towards the total cost of having the green repaired. The club have engaged the services of Chris Slater to undertake the work, hopefully in mid-September. To accommodate the timing of the work, I as the current President of the North Wales Saturday Coast League have decided to move the Presidents Day Competition to be held on the 1st October to the Llanfair PG green. I therefore must thank the Llanfair PG bowling club committee for accepting my request to use their green
