North Cambs complete EBF Derbyshire Trophy clean sweep against Northants B at Sutton St James Indoor Bowls Club
North Cambs completed an EBF Derbyshire Trophy clean sweep against Northants B on Sunday at Sutton St James Indoor Bowls Club.
They won convincingly on all four rinks and by 40 shots overall to partly avenge their 0-14 defeat by Northants ‘A’ last November.
North Cambs led the match from start to finish. The race for the North Cambs spoons (awarded to the players on the rink that win by the most shots after 25 ends) went down to the very last bowls, with each home rink in contention.
They were won (again!) by Joseph Gowler, Tony Reed and Bob Ground, who won their match by 12 shots.
Result: North Cambs 14 points (110 shots), Northants ‘B’ 0pts (70 shots). Rink 1 – Joseph Gowler, Tony Reed and Bob Ground 30, G Agger 18. Rink 2 – Chris Pope, Frankie Howard & Robert Allen 26, R Keating 16. Rink 3 – Matthew Hewitt, Andy Hailes & Matthew Fox 25, M Linnell 16. Rink 4 – David Bailey, Simon Peach & Nigel Eagle 29, D Noble 20.
