Brunel League 2018 – Solid Start by the Northey team – Wednesday 25 April
The Northey Team started their Brunel league matches with a solid home win against the Wheatsheaf from Corston. The Northey were making their debut in the top division of the Brunel League, having gained promotion at the first attempt last year. On a cold night the Northey started well, with wins in the doubles for Keith/Kevin and Steve/Graham but they lost the other doubles match. Both of the first triples were won (Keith/Steve/Kevin and Bob/Pete/Graham) giving an unassailable 4.1 lead. The Northey then fell away and lost both of the other triples, in close games. The final result was 4 (73) to 3 (53), to the Northey. Well done all, a good start to the season.
Northey Spring Cup 2018 – Sunday 22 April
The first major Trophy event of 2018 saw thirty club members competing for the prestigious Spring Cup, sponsored by BathAquaGlass. This is a good warm up for the new boules season and gives a chance for novices to play in their first competitive event. On a bright and dry day, the draw teamed experienced and novices together in a combination of triples and doubles. After four rounds the top scorers played each other in the final. A close and well fought final saw Lesley Holley and Keith Edwards narrowly defeat Heather Mahoney, Liam Holley and Pete Dixon. Heather was the surprise star of the day playing in her first competitive event and helping her team to the final. An enjoyable day for all with great and close games throughout. Well done all and particularly the winners.
