Bury Sunday morning league

team pairs K.O. competion.






    Sundays in October have become quite exciting for The Eagle & Child Bury Metro

    League team.

    This team was formed 4 years ago from non bowlers (exceptions being the captain

    and the 2 girls Jackie and Fran).

    A great group of people that rally round when work needs doing,

    bowl with enthusiasm but in the general order of things seldom

    won and propped the league up.

     (But who cares, we enjoy it they proudly proclaim)


    So a week last Sunday ( 8/10/17 ) they proudly returned "buzzing" having qualified for

    the team pairs K.O. semis


    Onward to Sunday the 15th drawn against the 3 times and last years winners Seedfield

    with a 10 start H' Cap.

    Straight away staring down the barrel of a gun Steve Dunn and Shaun Zivkovic take

    a beating using up the H' Cap.

    BUT a gritty performance from Jeff Lewis and John Smith, and

    a win from the girls Jackie and Fran, leave the Capt Alan Clarke and HON secretary 

    Ian Howarth needing to win by 2 or more.

    Which they duly do at 21-16, and hey it's finals time. 


    Now it's Monton in the final and we think there may have been a bit of

    skulduggery as Fran and Jackies partner and husband both

    play for Monton, and the possibillity of no tea could have been at play.

    We also think Alan Clarke gave Shaun and Steve a good talking to,

    as they went on and only allowed their opponents to score 1 point.

    Add the H' Cap and hey we have a chance.

    Another gritty win from the girls and great support from Jeff and

    John and out goes the call, we need 3 points to win.

    Alan and Ian duly oblige by winning their game 21-16, and the team

    that only came together 4 years ago with limited experience are

    leading winners.

    The clubs first trophy for over 2 years to some great members.

    Well done all of you, it's fantastic.


    PS. I think the "Duck" and "Snowy" did get their tea after all !
