Ladies County Triples

Liz Tunn, Jill Nicholson and Pam Smith played against Edna Woods, Doreen Cottee and Judy Bohannon from Tiptree, in the quarter finals of the ladies county triples. It was an extremely close game with it finally being decided with an extra end which Tiptree managed to win.

Our ladies bowled well throughout the competition, beating teams from Frinton,  West End, Arclight and Thorpe-le-Soken to reach the quarter finals.

TMJ Indoors Final

Arclight Saints managed to get through to the final of the TMJ Indoor Tournament, playing against Silver End.

The match was an extremely close one with Arclight Saints Pairs Team losing 10-32, our Triples Team winning 16-14 and our Fours Team just losing by 18-19. Two more shots for us in the fours would have sealed over all victory for us in the final.

Well done to all those who played and to our loyal supporters at the match.
