Hutton Short Mat Bowls Club held their first charity tournament of the year.

HUTTON Short Mat Bowls Club held their first charity tournament of the year at Hutton Village Hall in aid of Children’s Hospice South West.

The tournament was again well attended and thanks go to all clubs who entered a team. The 16 teams were split into two groups with each team playing four games and the winners of each group playing in the final.

The winners of each group were Escley from Herefordshire, who were playing at Hutton for the first time and the Motley Crew, from Somerset, and after an excellent final played over 10 ends, Escley were the eventual winners.

Thanks go to captain, Frank Paige, for organising another excellent tournament and to the ladies who worked tirelessly in the kitchen.
