Mixed triples league results

TRIPLES COMMENTARY

An innovation in this Covid dominated year was to hold the Triples event as a league running from mid July to mid September. Ten teams of four players entered and played every week. As the weeks passed, certain teams emerged as title contenders then two or three weeks from the end, a series of surprising results changed the picture. In the final week, it became clear that one of the Fab Four, Goldfingers or Jackdaws must win the title.

In their last game, the Fab Four needed just a point, Goldfingers need a win and Jackdaws needed a big win and hope that Goldfingers win narrowly. The playing schedule was established with the correct crystal ball because on Saturday 19th September, the Fab Four played Goldfingers and, on the next rink, the Jackdaws were also doing battle. What a game the Fab Four and Goldfingers gave us! It went down to the very last bowl on the last end. Goldfingers triumphed 14-12. Jackdaws won their game and finished on the same points as Goldfingers but with an inferior shot difference.

So congratulations to Goldfingers (Sheila Wadsworth, Alan Knight, David Price and Anne Wallace) who are this year’s Jack Linden trophy winners.

As can be seen from the final placings, no less than six teams finished with just 2 points separating them. There was plenty of competitive bowling but always in the right spirit. The format of this event has proved very popular and many thanks to all who took part.
