IMPORTANT NEWS ABOUT WALLASEY WEBSITE AND NEW RESULTS SERVICE

For all Association members who like to keep records of their own and their teams performances during the season, I can now inform you that we have now adopted the Crown Green Bowling Results Service

 operated by Mb Bowling results and currently used by the Birkenhead Evening and Afternoon Leagues, the Bebington & District League and the North Wirral League.

For all the Wallasey results, match sheets, Individual & Team Averages please enter into your web browser    http://bowlingresults.co.uk/wallasey/  where you will be able to access a mine of information.

You can also see this website at that address so it is worthwhile book marking the site once you access it.

My thanks go to Mike Beckett for all his help in setting up this excellent results service and for his speedy response to all my requests for help.

New Brighton Queens Royal are the 2014 Division One Champions

Despite losing only their second match of the League Season on Thursday, New Brighton Queens Royal have been crowned Division One Champions for the second year in succession. They finished nine points ahead of Runners Up, West Kirby Victoria and will now represent Wallasey in the Federation Team Knockout on Sunday September 14th in Mid Cheshire. Congratulations go to New Brighton Queens Royal on their success and also to West Kirby Victoria for managing to win every League match of the season but who, unfortunately for them, had 9 fewer individual wins than the Royal throughout the season.

10 winning cards for New Brighton Quarry Vikings in Wallasey News Cup Final Victory

New Brighton Quarry Vikings proved to be too powerful for Sandridge in Thursday's Wallasey News Cup Final at Upton Victory Hall and with 10 winning cards on the night, a 54 shot handicap was overturned into a final 49 shot victory for the Division One team against their Division Two opponents. On a wonderful evening for a Cup Final, the Vikings set sail for victory with a crushing 21-05 win for Phil Vaughan followed by 21-14 and 21-15 wins for Chris Barton and Jim Kearney. Sandridge did fight back with a good 21-13 win by Chris Morrison but the 54 shot deficit had already been reduced by 21 after the first four. The match was completely turned by a rampaging display by the Vikings middle four, who produced another two 21-05 wins through Joan Dewhurst and Ian Gallagher, backed up by Peter Birch winning 21-07 and Jamie Box winning 21-10. 57 shots were gained by this pillaging quartet and the score after 8 blocks now stood 160-136 to the Vikings, which did include the 54 shot handicap for Sandridge. Another 3 Vikings winners in the back four, Steve Clayton 21-11, Brian Leonard 21-11 and Graham Bunting 21-14 squashed any chance of a Sandridge fight back but despite an excellent 21-19 win by the Ridge's Kevin Fairclough, the match finally ended with a convincing 242-193 victory for the New Brighton Quarry Vikings team. Association Chairman, Mike Costall thanked the Upton Victory Hall Bowling Club for hosting the match at their excellent facility and thanked Mary Fishwick our Referee for the night, Colin Jones and Ken Palin our two measurers and both teams for their sporting behaviour throughout the Final. He thanked Tommy Walker and his two granddaughters, Beth and Caitlin for their work with the raffle and all the spectators for turning up to support the two teams on the night. A delighted but surprised New Brighton Quarry Vikings Chairman, Graham Bunting was then asked to step forward and accept the Cup from Association President, Keith Etches. Graham thanked his team for an excellent performance and praised the Sandridge team for such a sporting match.

Wallasey News Cup Final tonight

There is one change to the New Brighton Quarry Vikings 'A' team for tonight's Wallasey News Cup Final at Upton Victory Hall (6-30pm Start), with Ian Stead replacing Karen Smith at number 3 on the card. Ian will be playing Sandridge's Chris Morrison. This should be a good match and hopefully we can attract a decent crowd to support both teams.

Wednesday August 6th

West Kirby Park are the new Division Three Champions

Congratulations to West Kirby Park Bowling Club who have won the 2014 Division Three Championship.

Ruthless 'Royal' power to clean sweep in Presidents Cup Final

New Brighton Queens Royal were in a ruthless mood against Sacred Heart last night to win the Presidents Cup Final against Sacred Heart by 252 points to 213 points. The current Division One Champions and leaders of the this year's Championship completely overwhelmed the gallant Sacred Heart team, who had won the 2014 Division Two Title on Tuesday night. Having to pull back a handicap of 96 shots, New Brighton Queens Royal's front four managed to reduce this by 39 shots, with Steve Nugent 21-07 and Les Henderson 21-09 setting the tone for the night. Robbie Hall 21-14 and Craig Saville 21-15 completed the first four winning cards. Another two single figure winners for the Royal in the middle four, Steve Scott 21-08 and Colin Saville 21-09 backed up by two 21-13 wins for Matty Cunliffe and Geoff Lynch virtually sealed Sacred Heart's fate and with three more single figure winners in the back four, a best of the night 21-02 for Anthony Thompson and 21-05 and 21-09 wins for Andy White and Paul Saville respectively, left Mike Nelson to complete the match with a 21-13 victory for the powerful New Brighton Queens Royal outfit. Despite the score line in this match, Sacred Heart deserve great credit for their efforts but as most teams have found out this season, New Brighton Queens Royal just keep pounding away at the opposition and they thoroughly deserve their success. Mike Costall thanked the Royden Hall Bowling Club for allowing us to use their excellent facilities and green and thanked our Referee, Peter Fishwick and Colin Jones for doing the measuring. He thanked Mary Fishwick for running the raffle and congratulated New Brighton Queens Royal on their success. He praised the spirit Sacred Heart showed during a difficult evening for them but did point out the that New Brighton Queens Royal are setting the standard that we all have to try and match. Association President, Keith Etches, presented the Cup to a delighted New Brighton Queens Royal Captain, Geoff Lynch. One of the highlights for me during the evening was hearing Robbie Hall waxing lyrical about the green, or at least I think he was but my hearing is not quite as good as it used to be.

2014 Pairs League Fixtures

The 2014 Pairs League fixtures can be seen below. The Pairs League fixtures, results, score sheets and League Tables etc will be appearing on the new MB results service shortly. All matches must start no later than 6-15pm. Result Sheets, Rules etc will be distributed to Club Secretaries within the next few days. As already stated in an earlier post, we have 28 teams entered into the leagues this year meaning that we are operating 4 Divisions of 7 teams giving each team 12 fixtures. The following post was published on Thursday August 17th.

2014 Pairs League

The 2014 Pairs League will start on Tuesday August 12th. This season we have had 28 entries for the competition and this means that we will have 4 Divisions of 7 teams per Division. Each team will play the other team in their Division home and away and because of the number of teams entered, the competition will have to run over 14 nights and not the 10 nights as last season. This means that 1 team in each division per night will not have a match. We will use Tuesday's and Thursday's as usual for the matches but some matches will have to take place on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday once the Birkenhead League season and the Wirral Cup Finals have finished. If any team that has entered the competition now find themselves unable to commit to playing all the matches as scheduled with full teams and now wish to withdraw from the Pairs League, I need to know before I compile the fixture list. The cut off date for withdrawals is Thursday 24th July. The Divisions will be as follows:

Division One Division Two Division Three Division Four
 New Brighton Queens Royal  Wallasey RBL 'A'  Grange  Moreton RBL
 West Kirby Victoria  Liscard  Bronze  Poulton
 New Brighton Quarry Vikings  Manor Road 'B'  Magazine  Queens
 Manor Road 'A'  Sacred Heart  New Brighton Quarry Vikings 'B'  Manor Road 'C'
 Hoylake Central 'A'  Royden Hall  Harrison Park 'B'  Wallasey RBL 'B'
 Harrison Park 'A'  Hoylake Central 'B'  West Kirby Park  Telegraph
 Upton Victory Hall  Sandridge  Great Meols  New Brighton Quarry Vikings 'C'

I had not had any withdrawals by the 24th July.

Wallasey go top after excellent victory against Colne Valley

Wallasey defeated Colne Valley 21-11 this afternoon to overtake their nearest rivals and go top of Division Five with both teams having one match left to play. At the very tricky West Kirby Victoria green our home side had 10 winners from the 12 games, with New Brighton Queens Royal player Ray Lynch posting the best card of the day with a top quality 21-07 victory. Frank O'Neill, 21-11 and two 21-13 wins from Steve Nugent and Eddie Dutton helped us to a very good and vital 57 shot home victory with the score 239-182 to Wallasey. On another tricky green, away at Milnsbridge Bowling Club, Huddersfield things looked very bleak for us with the first 5 cards going to the home side but crucially both Matty Gilmore and Owen Doyle took their opponents all the way only for both to lose to 20. I might add that both the winning woods against us were unbelievable efforts by the home players. Phil Vaughan and Ian Hazlehurst put us right back on track though by winning 21-18 and 21-20 respectively. When James Fitzpatrick came from 03-10 down to clinch his match in another 21-20 victory it was left to Paul Saville with a 21-10 best Wallasey winning card and Robbie Fitzpatrick with a 21-11 victory to give us an excellent five away winners on the day. All our players home and away today played as a team and supported each other from the sidelines during difficult periods and this result gives us a great chance to finish top of Division Five at our first attempt. Our next match will be against East Lancashire on Sunday August 31st.

2014 Pairs League

The 2014 Pairs League will start on Tuesday August 12th. This season we have had 28 entries for the competition and this means that we will have 4 Divisions of 7 teams per Division. Each team will play the other team in their Division home and away and because of the number of teams entered, the competition will have to run over 14 nights and not the 10 nights as last season. This means that 1 team in each division per night will not have a match. We will use Tuesday's and Thursday's as usual for the matches but some matches will have to take place on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday once the Birkenhead League season and the Wirral Cup Finals have finished. If any team that has entered the competition now find themselves unable to commit to playing all the matches as scheduled with full teams and now wish to withdraw from the Pairs League, I need to know before I compile the fixture list. The cut off date for withdrawals is Thursday 24th July. The Divisions will be as follows:

Division One Division Two Division Three Division Four
 New Brighton Queens Royal  Wallasey RBL 'A'  Grange  Moreton RBL

Barber Bill proves to be a 'cut above the rest' in winning the Veterans Merit Competition

Harrison Park's Bill Jones bowled consistently well all day to win the Veterans Individual Merit title today in Central Park. An excellent Final with Manor Road's Ken Howard, in which the lead constantly changed hands saw Ken build up a 12-05 lead only to be pulled back to 12 across by Bill. In a nip and tuck match Ken was up 14-12, Bill responded to lead 16-14, the match was tied at 17 across and 19 across before Bill finally took the honours with a two to win 21-19. In earlier rounds Bill had beaten Bob Hodgson 21-14, Ian Mitchell 21-16 and Peter Dodd 21-14 in his semi final match (not the wisest thing to do I might add). Ken had been involved in two titanic struggles before beating Maureen Saville 21-20 and John Cosgrove 21-20 and he found the change of greens even more to his liking in his 21-04 semi final win against Colin Saville. Our Chairman, Mike Costall once again gave thanks to Terry Fanning for being an excellent host to the 24 players who turned up today and thanked all the markers and measurers for helping out throughout a really enjoyable competition. Annie Henderson presented the trophy to Bill after the Final on behalf of her husband, Les who had so generously donated the Cup to the Association in 1996. I would like to thank everyone who played today and stayed to watch such an excellent Final and Mike Costall for his help in keeping things running smoothly whilst our Competition Secretary, Keith Etches was on the green.

Queens win Association Cup after an excellent Final at a wet Manor Road green

Queens defeated Moreton Royal British Legion by 16 shots at Manor Road tonight to win the Association Cup. Ironically, after the original match in May was postponed because of a waterlogged green, tonight's Final was played throughout in steady rain. Tony Ratcliffe 21-08 and Reginald Hudson 21-19 got Moreton RBL off to a good start, only for Dave Bayne 21-06 and Alan Cresswell 21-19 to hit back immediately for Queens and give them an early 69-67 lead after the first four blocks.  Martin Goodenough 21-11 and Rob Smith 21-18 restored the lead for the Legion but a best of the night 21-05 from Jack Williams saw Queens take a big stride towards victory. The Legion's Ted Smith was having none of it though and his 21-06 victory saw the Moreton side 10 points ahead with 4 jacks left. The experienced duo of Noel Boyd 21-06 and Dave Hulmston 21-09 turned things round again for Queens to see them hold a 17 shot lead with the last two jacks on the green. Vic Peers sealed victory for the Queens with his 21-19 victory and despite the Legion Captain, Ian Kendrick winning his match 21-18  and the two sides having six winners each, an excellent match was eventually decided 206- 190 in Queens favour. Queens 4 single figure victories to just 2 by the Legion was the deciding factor at the end of the night. This match was played throughout in a great spirit between the two sides and was a credit to the Third Division. A delighted Tommy Scroggie received the Cup from Association President, Keith Etches after our Chairman had thanked both teams for a great match in trying conditions, the Referee, Peter Fishwick and the two scorers Colin Jones and Ken Palin.

Charity Day Success for Macmillan Cancer Support

Sunday's George Gilmore Memorial Trophy match at Manor Road Bowling Club proved to be yet another very well supported event, with players from all Three Divisions of the Wallasey Association taking part, with many players being accompanied by their wives or partners. Their was plenty of entertainment provided for the spectators with the celebration from Helen Lynch after partnering Craig Saville to a 21-20 victory over Julie and Paul Saville being one of the highlights of the day. This particular match set the tone for an excellent afternoon and Helen and Julie proved to be as competitive as any during the long hot afternoon. It would be difficult to comment on all the matches but another pleasant sight during the afternoon was witnessing Hilary and Paul Gartland winning for the first time in this event. Hilary was absolutely delighted to come off the green winning and Paul was quick to let everyone know how she carried him through the match. Great credit goes to Doreen and Ron Hitchmough for making this another match played in just the right spirit for a Charity event and I think they were as pleased for Hilary and Paul as everyone else. Robbie Hall and Barbara McBurney provided us with some top class bowling and plenty of entertainment against another good pairing in Joan Dewhurst and Chris Barton. Robbie, never short of a word or two on the green in any match, proved as quick witted as ever with some sharp observations about other matches on the green at the same time as his match. Winning and losing didn't matter on Sunday though as the Macmillan Cancer Support team benefited to the tune of £736 thanks to everyone's efforts. Thanks to all the Executive Committee for providing an excellent buffet for all the players after the match and a huge thanks to Doreen Hitchmough for her 'gentle persuasion' tactics in selling the raffle tickets. An unbelievable total of £271 was raised in the raffle. Thank you to all the players who took part on Sunday and to the Manor Road Bowling Club for yet again allowing us to use their green and I can inform everyone that I am going along with our Chairman, Mike Costall to Clatterbridge on Thursday to present the £736 cheque to the Macmillan Cancer Support team. For the record if anyone was interested, the Presidents team won the match in the end but both teams had 10 winning pairings each.
