EBA Draw Arrived!

The EBA draw has landed (yet again not to the club secretary to his dismay lol).
The 1st Round of the 4 Bowl Singles is a little disappoining as our 2 competitors has been drawn against each other. Barry Hopkins Jnr will face Scott Morland. The winner will face a home draw to either Craig Northam of Darlington RA or Vic Tunstall from Hundens Park.
The 1st Round of the pairs has been kind as both rinks have hom draws Barry Hopkins rink face a very tricky tie with John Fielding of Darlington RA where Scott Morland faces a less fearful draw against Les Parnell of Stockton BC.
We have 1 rink in the triples lead by Barry Hopkins that has a home draw to R. Carson of Elm Tree Bowls Club. Elm Tree os a bit of an unknown quantity to our players as they don’t feature in any of leagues but am sure it will be a tough test.
The 2 bowl singles only has 1 entry of Scott Morland and he faces an interesting task away to Keith Burton of Darlington RA. As an ex-South Park man this will be a keenly contested game – if the right Scott Morland turns up it could be a cracker.

Fixture Release

In the Darlington & District League we will host South Park Vets in the 1st Division 3 fixture. Thats likely to be a feisty 1st fixture and if we are able to field a full strength squad could we could get our season off to a flyer.
In the Durham & District League we face a tricky trip to relegated Witton Gilbert, always a tricky place to go, to come away with anything more than 4 points would be classed as a good start.
