Brenda Bell

It was with great sadness that we learned that Brenda Bell of the Thurcroft Ladies, had lost her hard-fought battle with illness and died yesterday.

She was always laughing and cheerful and will be much missed.  Our thoughts and sympathy are with her family and colleagues.

Sad News

Margaret Blades.  We have recently been informed of the loss of one of our founder-members - Margaret Blades, who died on 7th January.  Some of you may remember Margaret as a friendly, jolly person, but sadly she never really recovered from hip surgery following a fall.  She had been living in a care home for a number of years - there will not be a public funeral.

Elizabeth Hall  Liz, President of the SYCCGBA for a number of years, succumbed earlier this month to the effects caused by a long-running illness.  Those of us who knew her and appreciated the work that she did for the Ladies County Team were most distressed at her slow deterioration  -  but she was always strong-willed and  cheerful.  If you have an SYCCGBA blue book, Liz is the lady who's photograph is on page one.  Further details can be had from the SY Secretary - Keith Turton.

Awards Presentation Lunch 2023

A rather miserable day on Saturday November 4th saw a more boisterous gathering of ladies to congratulate our winners and celebrate another successful season.  An excelent meal, a drink or two and some good company rounded off the year well.  Kath Walton - our chairperson for many previous years, was present and  - at 91 - still going strong, but it was a pity that our current Chairperson - Pat Elliott - was unable to attend due to an attack of vertigo.  We all wish her a speedy recovery.  Also showing a good recovery from recent surgery were Pauline Farrar and Mary Bird. We are all looking forward to a more healthy 2024.

Our grateful thanks to Rosie Robins who organised everything to run like clockwork, and to all who helped the raffle raise £170 for our funds.

Champion of Champions 2023

Sunday 10th September was a perfect day for the final highlight if our season  -  

THE CHAMPION OF CHAMPIONS competion to crown the best of our players.

The first and second averages winners of all 4 leagues qualified  -  unfortunately 3 were not available to play (A Div 1; Vets 1; Doubles 2) - as they were already committed elsewhere, but we will be able to congratulate them all at the Presentation of awards lunch in November.  As permitted by Bye-Law 30, the next in line to qualify (Competition Winners) filled the 3 places

Because thunderstorms and heavy rain had been forcast, play got under way a little early, but we needn't have worried:  apart from a few drops around lunch time, the weather was ideally suited for bowling and the watching friends and supporters were treated to some of the very best play in every match.  All games were hard fought and the results of all were very close.  Eventually, despite a spirited fight-back from runner-up Doreen Farncombe,

the winner and CHAMPION OF CHAMPIONS 2023 WAS  -  MANDY CLARRICOATES!  Many congratulations
