Season Summary

Again, its that time of year again – blinked and you missed it!

Its been a solid season for the club, although we retained the Millennium trophy for the 2nd season running we failed to maintain our league form in each league. We can be pleased with finishing 6th in the South West Durham League, as it was our 1st season in the 1st Division. Our final game in the Durham and District League ruined what was almost a very successful run, we need 7 points to win the league and we lost 1-0 at home to Wolsingham. The Sherwood League saw us finish 3rd which was ok but after doing the league/cup double last season in was quite a drop back.

Despite all this our biggest success was gaining 5 new bowlers, not only were they an asset on the bowls green, they are probably showing more interest in the club on a social side that our old regulars. This can only help take the club forward – we have 3 social events planned over the winter and will be ordering club shirts in the close season.

D’ton League Resignation

We have this week officially resigned from the Darlington & District League, after a season of being treat unfairly in a registration dispute our decision was fasttracked to 2013.
Despie our problems the decision mainly is to secure the future of the club, we are now a mixed gender club and all leagues we will now participate in are mixed. Over the years we have had dwindling male membership and now we can push forward as one team.
As previously stated we have now joined the South West Durham League and look forward to the new challenge!

2013 South West Durham League

Our fixture list has arrived for the 2013 South West Durham League. We have a fairly nice set of opening fixtures starting at home to Langley Park.
Our first away game is only as far as Bishop Auckland then with 2 more home games and a bye we should be able to start without disgracing ourselves.
After a torrid season last year in the Darlington & District League we are really looking forward to the new challenge and hope we can field a regular full team to compete.
