INVITATION SHIELD 2018

INVITATION SHIELD FINALS DAY 11TH AUGUST 2018

Following the rain over the previous days the players of Ashill, Bradenham, Connaught and Diss were delighted to see the sun shining for the finals day, this coupled with a very pleasant temperature made for an excellent afternoon for bowling.

Rinks 4, 5, and 6 saw a repeat of last years final as Diss once again took the honours. Another very close encounter with Ashill, just 4 points separating the teams at the end of play.

The 3rd and 4th place match was also a repeat of the previous year with Connaught playing Bradenham. This year Connaught were not to be outdone winning 78-42. The foundation for the win began

on Rink 1 where a solid performance from Mick Utting’s block resulted in a 32-8 win.

On the adjacent rink 2 Owen Secker’s block also put in a workmanlike performance to win their game by 10 shots, 27-17.

On Rink 3 Sheila Braggs block were in the lead for much of the game only to behind on the 19th end, a 2 on the last end was needed to tie the game 19-19.

After the games, the players and guests enjoyed another excellent buffet prepared by Sandra Adcock and Marianne Liles with drinks served by mine host Bob Oatway.

Club President, Derek Liles, welcomed the visiting teams and thanked those who had donated raffle prizes. Derek went on to thank Sandra and Marianne for preparing the buffet, Bob for manning the bar and Elaine for attending to the raffle. Finally, Derek drew the attention of the gathering to the generosity of the sponsors, Bill and Diana Adcock and Marjorie and Vernon Plumpton who continue to support the event...

The visiting captains spoke in turn thanking everyone for their efforts, the Ashill captain made special mention of Bradenham who being a small club continued to support the event even though they had to seek players from outside their club.
The day concluded with the sponsors presenting the prizes to the competing clubs.
