Edwardson Cup win was highlight of the week

Alnwick Bowling Club

ALNWICK bowlers had a comfortable first round victory over Gosforth Garden Village in the Edwardson Cup, winning by 58 shots to 32.

But it was all bad news in the league.

In the Northumberland Bowling Association Nines, they were beaten by leaders Backworth 6-2 but the winning margin was much closer, with the four losing out on the last end by two shots after going in level.

In the county Clegg Cup league, they are finding the heavy Tyneside greens a burden and lost heavily to Heaton Victoria 12-2.
