Presentation Day

 

Many thanks to Little Hulton Cons yesterday (19th September) where some excellent bowling was enjoyed by all who attended the Semi-Finals and Final of the Jervis Cup.   Plodder Lane overcame a strong challenge from St. Mary's 'A' in Section 'A' and Peel Park from Roe Green in Section 'B.   The final between Plodder Land and Peel Park went to the last bowl and resulted in a draw.  In accordance with the Competition Rules, each team nominated one Player to play a deciding game, resulting in a win for Peel Park.

The presentation of prizes was followed by hotpot and the raffle.  

Many thanks to everyone who attended and made this day such a success.  (And to the sun which decided to make an appearance).
