On The Green

"On the Green 2019"  -  last updated  Wednesday 14th August....


Early August continued where July left off, with a remarkable and outstanding period for the Club as mentioned briefly in our 'Latest News' section. At the start of the week pleasingly, three of our Teams remained 'Top' their leagues and two players continued to 'Top' their Divisional Averages. This, however, has since changed but there are still 'Many Positives'. Further match reports follow...


Clwydian Senior Citizens Bowling League

"A" Division.  Yesterday's 'A' Team's 9-3(Agg 162-197) away loss against Denbigh 'A', saw them still retain fourth spot in the Division. Best equal winners Colin Baily and Laura Williams both 21-15. Next week sees them host seventh place Rhuddlan 'A' at home.        

C" Division.

Please see the "Latest News Section" for our "B" Team's report.

Our "C" Team remain bottom in fourteenth spot after again losing 9-3 (Agg 153-193) in their morning home match with Dyserth 'B'. Best winner Chris Watson 21-9 Next week, sees another 'Tricky' encounter when away to Trefnant 'B'. 


Colwyn and Llandudno District Bowling League

"B" Division. Last Wednesday our 'A' Team drew 6-6 (Agg 183-184) at home to  Rhuddlan - winning six of the match games and losing the Aggregate by one point - now seeing them fifth in the Division - but by no means safe. Let's hope those two additional 'League Points' lost don't bite them at the season end with only two points separating fifth and eighth. Next week they are away to second to bottom Llysfaen seeing the first of four 'Potential Relegation' matches ahead of them with their rivals hoping to avoid the drop. In effect there is now a 'Mini League' within the Division.     

"C" Division.  Last Wednesday also saw our 'B' Team relinquish 'Top Spot' to Rhos Park 'C' after a heavy but not unexpected away loss to then second to bottom Sunny Rhyl 9-3(Agg 133-184). Best winner Chris Triggs 21-7. Their false and unexpected low 'League Position' is entirely due to their under performing players - which clearly wasn't the case this week.        

Rhos Park 'C' are now 'Top'on on 102 points, four points ahead of us in second on 98, Eirias Park 'B' on 97 in third and Old Colwyn 'A' on 96 in fourth. Next week we host seventh place Rhos Park 'D'at home. Rhos Park 'C' host Abergele 'B' at home and should maintain or even slightly extend their lead. Eirias Park 'B' host our 'C' Team at home and will no doubt overtake us. 

This Monday, instead of playing Abergele 'B'  in the League, our 'C' Team played Craig-y-Don 'B' at Penmaenmawr in the Quarter Final of the League's Consolation Cup. Despite their considerable net handicap advantage of 69 points, they lost the match on Aggregate Points 237-199. Craig-y-Don 'B' also won all the individual games with Chris Watson being our Best Loser on 21-17.          


North Wales Coast League"D" Division

Last Saturday's, convincing away win over Vardre 'B' 9-3 (agg 198-121) saw our 'A' Team still retain 'Top Spot'. Best winner Scott Williams 21-4.  

Llanrwst 'B''s home game with Mochdre Park 'B' was again postponed due to the bad weather. Interestingly next week sees us host third place Llanrwst 'B' at home. Despite their many games in hand now, a win should see our team promoted at the end of the season. Next week Bryn Newydd in second place have a difficult away task at Kinmel Bay.  


Vale of Clwyd Bowling League

Last Thursday's convincing 10-2 (Agg 193-148) home victory over Rhuddlan 'B' saw three straight wins and with it twenty six points out of a maximum of thirty six - elevating them to a well deserved sixth spot in the League - still with a game in hand on fifth place Rhos Park 'B'. This followed last Friday's excellent 7-5 (Agg 186-177) away win over third place Dyserth 'A'  and a week last Thursday's convincing    9-3 (Agg 195-142) home win over Sunny Rhyl. Next week they are away to bottom club East Parade 'A' who are now nineteen points below them and every chance of another victory. It's all very tight at the top now with only ten points now separating second to seventh. The remaining matches are all potential wins which could conceivably result in a 'Top Three Finish' resulting in a considerable change of fortunes compared to the earlier part of the season.   

So many congratulations to Team Captain Arthur Peake for 'Masterminding' these victories and his players for their considerable personal efforts.Ed.
