FINALS NIGHT - 27th March

The top 2 teams in each Division met at Great Ouseburn to determine the final placings in this years league competition witnessed by a good crowd of about 40 spectators.

In the first match Arthur Jacksons St. Cuthberts 'B' side never offered any serious challenge to Ralph Parsons Easingwold 'B' team who out drew and out played the Crayke side from the start. With the final score at 34-18, Easingwold B therefore matched their last years 3rd position whilst St. Cuthberts had to be content with 4th place.

In the battle for the coveted Hanson "wooden man", Hambleton 'B' met Boroughbridge 'A'. Both teams had won their respective Divisions by similar huge margins (see above) so each was keen to prove that they really were the leagues best team. To begin with, it looked as if the match could go either way and after 6 ends Hambleton just had the edge at 12-10. They increased this lead substantially to 22-10 after winning the next two ends on both mats. Boroughbridge, realising they needed to raise their games then swapped over skips on both mats but to no avail. Both Hambleton triples continued to play steadily keeping the pressure on their opponents and eventually triumphed 38-26 with an end in hand. This was a sweet victory for Hambleton who have had to settle for the runners up place in each of the last 7 years!

The evening was hosted by the Great Ouseburn Village Hall SMBC who provded tea/biscuits and raffle and umpired by Derek Williams (who recently qualified for his International Badge after his work at the World Championships in Potters).

CHALLENGE CUP DAY 2006

 

Saturday February 25th 2006: 11 of the leagues 15 clubs entered a full team of two triples whilst Raskelf and Tollerton entered a hybrid team (RasToll) making 12 entries in all. Last years format was repeated with all clubs placed into two Groups and playing all others in their Group (triple A playing the opposing triple A and triple B likewise playing the opposing triple B over timed 35 minute games). Thus each club had 5 matches with a possible maximum score of 30 points.

 

Hambleton (Group 1) and St. Cuthberts (Group 2) were the only two undefeated teams only dropping two points during the course of the day so a close Final between these two looked inevitable. This lived up to expectations with either side failing to pull away and scores remaining very close. With the final end to go, St. Cuthberts Arthur Jackson, Ian Battersby and Len Lofthouse were tied at 7-7 against Danny Brown, Derek Williams and Barry Simmonite. On the other rink Hambletons Alan Banthorpe, David Paterson and Margaret Mellors were 13-11 up on Chris/Christine Peel and Ken Thompson. A strong finish by the Crayke club could have secured victory - however both of their triples could not find the winning shots needed thus allowing Hambleton to retain the Cup for the 2nd year by a 23-18 margin.  (See PhotoGallery)

 

Presenting the Trophy to the winning side, the Chairman of the league, John Bunting, announced the welcome news that at long last, a runners up Cup was to be inaugurated. This is to be donated by the St. Cuthberts club and will be dedicated to  Reg Tilley, the clubs late President and life member.
