Boxing Day (+1) Tournament – 80th Anniversary

This year is the 80th Anniversary of our annual Boxing Day Tournament, and to push the numbers up we have decided to run it on the day after Boxing day, Wednesday the 27th of December. The fun and games will start around mid-day, and it will cost £5 which goes towards prizes, bacon butties and a bit of fundraising. If you are planning to take part please let me or Mark know directly. Handicaps will be worked out once all entries are in. We are also planning to have a meal later in the evening, again please let me or Mark know if you would like to join on us.

Mid Lancs Week M

Report From Paul Eastham

In the last report of the year, the current leaders of division 1, MGS A completely blew open the title race this week with a 14-4 victory over David Lloyd. The win keeps MGS A at the top, 2 ahead of St. Andrews A as statistically the best player on the night was Tim Vickers, he won 5 games including an ‘egg’ (that’s to love) in the 2nd Men’s… I had never heard that before?

MGS B beat downtrodden Crusaders A 14-4 to climb 8 points above the red line. In the max point win, it was Tom Lowe & Lynn Hosegood who were the best pair on the evening; they won all their 6 games in the No 2 slot.

St. Andrews A beat Carlton A 11-7 to keep in 2nd place on the tables; Steve Taylor, Lizzie Balmforth & Ash Gibson won 5 games each to assist in the 3 point win. Next week Andy’s travel to Cross Feathers in a make or break match for both teams!

Meanwhile, Cross Feathers moved back into 3rd position on the table when they beat Hawks A 14-4. Rachael Graham and Terri-lee Holmes won all of their 6 games to be the best players on the night & next week they host St. Andrews A…….Fab!
