North Cambs v Norfolk ~ Derbyshire Trophy ~ 2nd February 2020

Please see below a brief report from the EBF County Bowls game played yesterday. With the closure of facilities in our area becoming a regular occurrence now – including the loss of the Hudson Indoor Bowls Club last season with no replacement venue being found to date - I would greatly appreciate if you could help raise exposure of our great sport by continuing to print these press releases. The photograph shows the North Cambs players (white sleeves) alongside Norfolk players (blue sleeves) and officials.

Derbyshire Trophy 2nd February 2020.
North Cambs EBF v Norfolk, played at Sutton St. James Indoor Bowls Club.

On Sunday, North Cambs EBF’s final game in this season’s Derbyshire Trophy was decided by the very last bowl of the match. With North Cambs one shot down on the board, but with Andy Hailes, Anthony Hancock and Matthew Fox holding one in the last game to be decided, Norfolk’s Danny Cawthorne removed Hailes’s shot wood via a wick (deflection of a short bowl) and picked up three shots. This was the first and only time during the entire match of 600 bowls, played over 100 ends that Norfolk were ahead in the match. The scoring system (2 points for each winning rink and 6 points for the overall aggregate score) meant that Norfolk won the game 10 points to 4 which doesn’t sound particularly close – but other than a draw, it really couldn’t have been any closer!

The North Cambs spoons (awarded to the players on the rink that win by the most shots after 25 ends) were won by David Bailey, Simon Peach and Nigel Eagle – piping Chris Pope, Frank Howard and Robert Allen by one shot. That victory meant that Simon Peach ended the season with a 100% record in the competition, winning all 4 of the games he played in.

Derbyshire Trophy 2nd February 2020 – Full Result: North Cambs 4 points (85 shots), Norfolk 10 points (89 shots).

Rink 1 – Andy Hailes, Anthony Hancock & Matthew Fox 12, D Cawthorne 37.
Rink 2 – Chris Pope, Frankie Howard & Robert Allen 27, B Sadler 16.
Rink 3 – David Bailey, Simon Peach & Nigel Eagle 28, M Riches 16.
Rink 4 – Charlie Waling, Tony Reed & Bob Ground 18, M Turner 20.

North Cambs EBF is very keen to hear from bowlers (male and female) interested in playing at County level, as thoughts start to turn towards the upcoming outdoor season. The men will play in the Newton Trophy, whilst the ladies will play in both the Silver Jubilee Vase and Donald Steward Trophy competitions.  For an initial discussion just to learn of the format and what County bowls entails - with no commitment - please call County Secretary Paul Bennett on 01945 480857.




North Cambs v Linc's ~ Derbyshire Trophy ~ 26th January 2020

Derbyshire Trophy 26th January 2020.
North Cambs EBF v Lincolnshire, played at Sutton St. James Indoor Bowls Club.

On Sunday, in their penultimate Derbyshire Trophy match of the season, the North Cambs EBF team beat Lincolnshire on 2 out of the 4 rinks but lost by 23 shots overall.

The North Cambs spoons (awarded to the players on the rink that win by the most shots after 25 ends) were won (yet again!) by Joseph Gowler and Bob Ground, this time supported terrifically by Charlie Waling who was playing in Tony Reed’s absence.

North Cambs’ Rink 1 trio of Andy Hailes, Danny Stanton and Matthew Fox lost by 30 shots but the score-line was more down to superb bowling of their three opponents and some terrible luck, rather than bad bowls by the North Cambs players.  The score-line of 10-40 flattered their opponents, who although deserved to win, were not 30 shots better than the North Cambs rink.

Derbyshire Trophy 26th January 2020 – Full Result: North Cambs 4 points (80 shots), Lincolnshire 10 points (103 shots).

Rink 1 – Andy Hailes, Danny Stanton & Matthew Fox 10  v  J West 40.
Rink 2 – Charlie Waling, Joseph Gowler & Bob Ground 30  v  G Draper 13.
Rink 3 – David Bailey, Simon Peach & Nigel Eagle 29  v  G Parker 22.
Rink 4 – Chris Pope, Frankie Howard & Robert Allen 11  v  T Bannister 28.

North Cambs’ last Derbyshire Trophy game of this season is on 2nd February 2020 against the incredibly strong Norfolk side. It will be played at Sutton St. James Indoor Bowling Club and will start at 10am.
