St Helens Pensioners Cup Finals
The teams arrived on an overcast day with the weather threatening to break with rain forecast. The President’s Cup, played on green 2, was contested by Eccleston A (scratch) and Rainhill A (36). The Chairman’s Cup, played on green 1, was contested by Carr Mill B (6) and Lady Margaret A (scratch).
Both competitions produced some excellent bowling with demonstrations of short straight marks and some long falling marks being played. At the half way stage Eccleston, with a mountain to climb, were 40 behind and Carr Mill were 17 behind. The second half again produced some excellent bowling before the heavens opened.
The players did well to play in the conditions with the greens characteristics changing minute by minute. However, there had to be winners with Rainhill taking the President’s Cup and Lady Margaret taking the Chairman’s Cup.
Trevor Bold, Secretary of the St Helens Pensioners League, thanked the committee and members of Windle Bowling Club for hosting the finals and then presented the trophies to the winners.
