Knypersley Do The Double in Newcastle League


The Knypersley team playing in the Newcastle league have completed a great double by winning the Newcastle League Division 1 title as shown in the table to the left and also winning the Burgess Cup K.O. Competition.


The Burgess Cup final was played by a slightly under strength Knypersley team because of holidays and unavailability against a strong Wolstanton Park 2 team.

The first 4 matches were all fiercely contested with Knypersley reducing the 5 chalk handicap difference to a plus 2 advantage.

When numbers 5 and 6 came off the green Wolstanton had taken a slight lead of 2 chalks.

Nothing in the game so far with a tight finish in prospect!

Julie playing at number 7 looked to be on track for a decent result but then froze on 20.

The pressure was now on Keith (Team Captain) but after some excellent bowling from his opponent he ran out to win 21-17, so winning the match by just 1 chalk for Knypersley.
