Tony Allcock Adventure

Our adventure to the quarter final stage of the competition ended in defeat by 28 shots to 12 against the 2018 winners, Banbury Central, who reached the final again with a 32-24 victory in  the semifinal.

In the final  against Bromley, Banbury Central were again successful winning 28-27.

A new experience at National Finals for 5 of the team must hold us in good stead for next season. Bring it on!


Tony Allcock National Final Qualifiers – Story of the game

Social had a great star against our opponents Bush Hill Park having a 9-0 lead after two ends. The position was 12-4 two ends later but fifth end saw the scores back level when we dropped scores of 6 and 2.

After 7 ends in this 15 end match Margaret’s rink was level at 9 all and Dave led 8-3. The ninth end had the match back even again with 3 shot differences on each rink. At 12 ends Bush Hill Park took the lead by 2 shots with Dave’s rink being level. The next end saw Margaret’s rink get level with Dave being up by 1 shot.

After 14 ends Dave who was nearly an end in front was a shot down and Bush Hill Park opted to concede a shot rather than risk losing more so it was down to the final ends.

Dave managed to win his end to finish at 11-11, giving us a one shot advantage with one end to play on the other rink.

The rink was 3 shots down when Margaret came to bowl but being the composed under pressure bowler that we know she is, Margaret managed to just beat their nearest bowl with her first and then switched hands to deliver an even better bowl to lie 2 and give Social a 3 shot victory. Congratulations to everyone a great team effort.
