Central League overturn a deficit to lift the cup

The Central Skittle League overcome a deficit to beat the District League and lift the Ron Day Cup.

THE second leg of the Ron Day Cup took place between the District and Central Leagues at the Golden Lion, Worle.

With an 18-pin lead from the first leg, the District won the first set by three pins. The second set went the way off the Central, winning it by 18 with some steady skittling by all three players with Dave Bastin top scoring with 49.

Now with only a three-pin lead going into the third set, the District again got off to a bad start only for Warren Main to put in an 18 spare to win the set by one.

Going into the fourth set four pins down over the two legs, the Central saw some great skittling by all three players with captain John Bastin leading the way with 57, securing a victory on the night by 38 pins (441-479) and over the two legs by 20 pins.
