Durham League Comps Drawn

The Durham & District League competitions have been drawn and have posed some interesting ties. Sam Pattison travels away from home to Bowburn to face Chris Gething who skipped against Sam in the mixed pairs final last season.
Scott Morland travels to Spennymoor to face Joshua Jolly who is a prospect for the future and is no pushover and Jane Pattison has the plumb tie travelling into the hill to EverReady Craghead to play Mike English who is possibly along with Billy Maddison one of the best singles bowlers in the league.
In the mixed pairs Sam Pattison and Scott Morland, finalists of last year face a home tie to the competitions secretary John Webster and his wife, they faced these two at Sherburn a couple of seasons ago and threw away a big lead to lose the tie. This time it looks as though they represent Vane Tempest but at home am sure they can cause them a problem.
Barry and Sandra have what should be a straight forward home tie to Henry and McGorrighan of Pelton Fell. Although we know little about the opposition our 2 players are very strong (former champions) and will take come beating on their own patch.
The Hospital Cup poses a repeat fixture of 2011 with a trip to Nevilles Cross to play last years winners and League Secretary Brian Slinn. This was a game of one half last year, one LONG half. The green was fast and incredibly tricky but Sam Pattison, Scott Morland and Simon Brodie will be more prepared this time. Lets hope Ian Hudson isnt chatting up all the women around the green this year……………
