Convincing cup win for Clevedon

Clevedon made further progress in the Turnbull Cup by visiting their old and feared rivals Bristol, and to their delight came away with a convincing win.

Clevedon made further progress in the Turnbull Cup by visiting their old and feared rivals Bristol, and to their delight came away with a convincing win. They next play Yeovil in the quarter-finals on a neutral green at Street.

In a strange juxtaposition of fixtures in the Weston Over-60s Triples League, Clevedon met the Prom Vikings twice in one week, but with many of the same players involved, the scores were reversed with each team flourishing on their own green.

Clevedon 85, Bristol 67 (Turnbull Cup): N Neath, M Bryant, G Jay, M Payne 19-26;

M Langley, A Morgan, S Withers, N Pearce 22-18; D Bessant, R Pitts, N Westlake, D Mason 16-14; K Bristow, M Short, JP Branfield, J Hick 28-9.

CLEVEDON Promenade travelled to Bath to play in the National Two Rinks. For the winners this would mean entry into the final 16 of the competition. The Prom started off well and were six shots up after three ends, however after 10 ends they had slumped to 10 shots down. To say that they were running hot and cold in Bath about summed up their position.

After 16 ends Prom had reduced the deficit to just six shots and the end game was hotting up, even though the sun had set and the chill wind was biting into the spectators. The game ended with Bath holding onto their six-shot lead and winning an exciting match. They will now face Bristol.

It is with great sadness we learn that the president of Clevedon Promenade, Noel Davies passed away on Friday, July 10 His typical Welsh humour will be missed by his many friends in the local bowling and skittles community.

Over the years he made a huge contribution to the "Prom" bowls club, having served as captain and on the selection committee for a number of years before becoming president. Noel was always keen to accept and implement new ideas, to encourage new bowlers, and to improve the game of bowls.

He was a competitive person, not only at bowls but as a skittler, sadly however, in latter years he had to be a spectator-due to his illness, but attended many bowls matches and continued in his role of captain of the Promenaders skittles team.

OVER100 couples, divided into four sections, have taken part in the Somerset County Mixed Pairs, and the last eight played the quarter and semi- finals at Bath. There was excellent bowling, with exciting nail-biting matches, two of which warranted an extra end. Congratulations to Julie Ratcliffe and Brian Deverill (West Backwell) and Muriel Lewis and Ian Blatchford (Nailsea), who will play in the final at the end of August.
