Arclight Chiefs win Kings Coaches Indoor/Outdoor Championship

Arclight winners of the Kings Coaches Indoor/Outdoor Competition, that certainly sounds good.
I would like to thank all the players, not only the 9 that played in the final, but also Pam Smith, Andrew Johnson and Gill Cousins who were all unavailable for the final but helped get us there.
The support was fantastic thanks all, who cheered us on .
We had some good games on the way defeating Brightlingsea, Braintree and Silver End .
The final was certainly a nail biter that went to the final wood, the way bowls should finish, not good for the nerves though .
A great team effort as we all look forward to the outside season.
