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.

Men's success

With the end of the season drawing to a close, it is very satisfying to confirm that our A team in the Borough mens fours finished in a comfortable 3rd place.

In addition they have reached the final of the Borough team competition against West Mersea to be played at Severalls on Sunday 11th September. To add to our success, the men have reached the final of the group 1 unbadged double fours, following a win last night against Wivenhoe in a very tight match.

The final is to be played on the weekend 17th/18th September against West End on their green. Support for our teams would be appreciated

Sudbury Triple League Winners

Following our convincing win against Colchester tonight l am pleased to advise that we have won the Sudbury Mixed Triples League (SMTL). This was a close run thing which came down to our final match, Boxford Blue and ourselves have been front runners all season, Cornard and Bocking were also in contention. For your information this is only the second time that Arclight have won the SMTL in the history of the competition, l therefore consider this a notable achievement for the club. I would personally like to thank each and everyone of you for your support and efforts throughout the season which is much appreciated. There have been times when l have been scratching around for players, particularly the ladies, however there was always someone to put their name forward, conversely there has been other times where l have found it difficult to leave people out due to the number of names listed for selection. I hope everyone was happyand understood my decisions. To sum up a big thank you for a very successful season and a very WELL DONE.
