Sun shines on triples

Lesbury Bowling Club

The club recently held their annual open triples competition under blue skies and quite warm sunshine.

There was a full entry of 16 teams from all over Northumberland and even down into Durham.

The standard of bowling was very high from the off and after the round-robin section, the semi-finals were contested by two teams from Amble, one from Consett and one that kept local interest involved from Lesbury.

After some superb play in the semi-finals, the final was to be contested by T Henderson, E Carr and M Creegan (s) from Consett and R Pringle, A Hay and H Miller (s) from Lesbury. Again there was some thrilling ends played but unfortunately for the local triple, they were beaten by a tremendous effort by the Consett triple.

In closing, the president of Lesbury Mrs C Gibson thanked all those who had played and had a long journey to get there. She thanked the ladies for their sterling work in the kitchen, keeping all fed and watered.

She also gave thanks to Mr Carlo Biagioni, of Carlo’s Fish and Chip Restaurant, Alnwick, for his continuous sponsorship of this competition. Without this it would be difficult to run the event.
