"On the Green 2018" .... updated 19th October 2018

Final League Team Positions & Individual Performances

The Club has experienced highs and lows this season for both young and old. Whilst one team secured promotion sadly two others were relegated. A further plus though - two more of our Juniors achieved National Honours.       

Let's start our round up with our Junior Bowlers.

Welsh Junior National Honours....

Firstly congratulations to Rhys Boulton and Richard Jones on their continuance in the Welsh Junior Team and to Zack Hayward and Ben Turner-Renshaw for their deserved selection this season. Richard finished 8th in the Team's Averages and Rhys 12th out of 32 registered players. Both won two of their three games helping the Welsh Team secure its Premiership Status by finishing third.   

Juniors' League Performances....    

Colwyn and Llandudno District Bowling League 

Six Juniors played for this season's restructured C Team, carrying on the mantle of our "D" for Development Team, in previous seasons. We had to withdraw our  "D" Team before the season started as many members throughout the Club had become unwell and infirm during the Winter break. Richard Jones was again "Top Block" winning 9 of his 12 games and finishing 3rd in the Team Averages. Zack Hayward was second - also winning nine of his games but with a lower plus aggregate score. 

North Wales Coast League

Five of the same Juniors played for our  B Team in Division "D". Richard Jones was again the "Star Turn" winning 9 of his 15 games and topping the Team's Averages. He aslo excelled in the Season's End Divisional Merits by beating Miriam Forder Rhos Park "B" and "B" Division player in his first round game only to lose narrowly in the Quarter Final to Keith Bailey Beaumaris "A" and 4th in the "A" Divisional Averages. Rhys Boulton also won all his 4 games.    


Now for on overview on our League Teams and other Individual Performances.......

Clwydian Senior Citizens Bowling League

"A" Division. Our "A" Team struggled this season finishing 11th (5th last year) still under the stalwart stewardship of Ted MacCarthy. John Shaw and Colin Baily were first and second in the Team Averages.                                                                               

 "C" Division. Our "B" Team also struggled this season finishing 11th (3rd last year). Their performances much improved after the Mid-point. Thanks go to Tom Maddock for his last season as Captain. Christine Jones, this season's "C" Team Captain, will be taking over. Dave Robinson topped the Team Averages with his wife Muriel Robinson second.                                                                           

Our "C" Team were again the "Star Turn" this season! After gaining promotion last season, they finished an excellent fourth. Congratulations go to Chris Jones Team Captain for this considerable achievement. Edna Yates topped the Team Averages with Martin Williams second. Both were second and fourth in the Divisional Averages.         

Colwyn and Llandudno District Bowling League

"B" Division. Our "A" Team finished 6th same as last year under the Stewardship this season of Ted MacCarthy. John Shaw topped the Team Averages with Colin Baily second.

Sadly our further re-structured "B" Team, following the loss of many key players mainly through illness, finished bottom and was relegated to the "C" Division. Some consolation though for Team Captain Ann Yates and our Club's President - Ann is this season's Club's Victrix Ludorum.  Dave Robinson Topped the Team's Averages with Ann Yates second.

"D" Division. Our re-structured "C" Team was this season's "Star Turn" finishing 2nd (5th last season) and with it promotion to the "C" Division. Our grateful thanks and congratulations go to new Team Captain Ken Simms for all his hard work. Chris Triggs topped the Team Averages (5th in the Division) with Ken Simms a  worthy second - both winning 75% of their games. Chris also won the Club's Victor Ludorum. There were also four players with 100% win records - most notably Sandra Hughes, our Club's Lady Captain, who won all eight of her games.   

North Wales Coast League

"C"Division. Sadly our "A" Team struggled this year culminating in relegation to the "D" Division despite the stalwart efforts of Team Captain and Club Chairman Dave Jones. Dave is now stepping down and it will be left to the incoming Captain to regroup and bounce back. Wyn Owen topped the Team's Averages - finishing 10th in the Division and Ted MacCarthy was second.

"D" Division. Our "B" Team, this season again ably Captained by Chris Watson,  consolidated 9th spot in a much improving League. Richard Jones Welsh Junior topped the Team's Averages with Chris Triggs second.           

Vale of Clwyd Bowling League

This season they consolidated their "B" Division status by finishing 9th under the continued stewardship of Arthur Peake Team Captain. Ted MacCarthy topped the Team's Averages with Dave Jones second.          

So that's it from our news team for this season. Thanks for your company and for reading all our bulletins.
