Central League secure the Ron Day Cup

The Weston Central League secured the Ron Day Cup, despite losing the second leg against the District League.

THE second leg of the Ron Day Cup took place at the 49 Club between the Central and District league teams.

Central had a 47-pin lead from the first leg and got to a steady start on the first set, winning by four pins, Andy Collard (49) top scoring for District 49. The District got off to a great start in the second set with spares from all three players, but an outstanding performance from John Bastin (62) helped Central take the set by six pins.

Now 57 pins down, the District had to start pulling pins back to give them any hope and on a low scoring third set, they pulled 21 pins back.

In the fourth set, it was nip and tuck with Central just staying in front and taking the set by seven pins and with one ball of the night left, the game on the night was all square. Phil Dean for the District scored four to give victory to the District.
