Newcastle League 2014 Season
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-
