Unbeaten run to win

Alnwick Bowling Club

TWO Alnwick players recently won the Rothbury Bowling Club open pairs.

George Turner and Dougie Miller had an unbeaten run to win the competition over 42 ends.

In the final they beat local pair Tom Dixon and George Donkin by one shot after going into the last end all square.

In the only league match of the week Alnwick travelled to Walker in Newcastle for the Northumberland Bowling Association Clegg Cup league game and were given a hammering, losing 12-2.

There are no league matches this week because of the County president’s tour to Nottingham for which Alnwick are providing six players.

In the only friendly of the week, Alnwick overcame long-term friendly opponents Saltburn by 24 shots.
