Stones Cup

The season is almost over, and there are just the games in the Stones Cup to be played. The schedule is elsewhere on this web site, and it will be a great help if results can be forwarded to the Registrar as soon as possible after the games are played.

While we have some clubs who have volunteered their green for use for the semi-finals and final, we are keen to ask for any other clubs who are willing and able to do so, as we need some flexibility as it will depend on which teams reach the last four as to which greens we are able to use as neutral greens.

Midweek Cup Final

On a cool but fine night at Barkers Park Treeton A retained the Midweek Knockout Cup trophy on Wednesday evening. A good crowd had gathered to support both teams.

After the first three games Phoenix B held a two point advantage with good wins for Graham Beecham and Brenda Woodward, with Paul Schofield redressing the balance somewhat by winning his game for Treeton.

Treeton, however, came on strong in the second half to win all three close fought encounters to tip the balance their way, running out by a final margin of 14 points. A victory by Keith Richardson over Steve Cartwright in a high quality final game confirmed the victory.

So congratulations go to Treeton A and also to Phoenix B for reaching the final and putting up a spirited fight.

Finally a big thank to everyone at Barkers Park for providing a green in good condition and their warm hospitality.

2017 Rotherham Combined Presentation Night

It was agreed at the Mid-season Meeting that we would again hold a separate Presentation Night this year.

The Presenation Night will be combined with a Race Night, with pie and peas being served midway through the evening, so it should prove to be a very enjoyable evening.

It has been booked for Saturday, 4th November at the Phoenix Sports and Social Club, and all clubs agreed that they would buy at least two tickets at £5 each. The doors will open at 7pm, with the first race starting at 7.30pm prompt. There will be a vegetarian option to the pie available, but we do ask that you let us know in advance. All clubs/secretaries are requested to confirm the number of your team members who will be attending by Sunday, 29th October, so that we can finalise catering arrangements. Of course, if more than two people from each club wish to attend, they are more than welcome to do so!

As preparation for the race night I am asking for 8 clubs or members to sell a full race card of 8 horses at £3 and also to obtain a sponsor for each race. The winning horse of each race will result in the owner who as paid £3, winning the sponsors prize for that race what ever it is. On the night individual attendees will be given a race card with all the horses running and in which race and are asked to bet on which horse they feel is going to win. The betting is run on a tote system and goes up in multiples of £1 bets but individuals can obviously buy multiple bets if they wish to do so.

We will also be running a raffle on the night, and clubs are requested to bring a raffle prize with them on the night. All money raised from the raffle and the race night will go back into RCCGBA funds, which will, hopefully, allow us to keep league costs down for future bowling seasons.

So, you could have a great night out and as well as helping towards the cost of running our bowling leagues!

A poster advertising the event can be printed off by clicking here, and we encourage all clubs to put a copy on the notice board in your club hut as soon as possible.

If anyone needs any futher details, please contact David Hamilton, either by email or by phoning 0777 6454318.

Race nights are great entertainment, even if you don't know much (or anything) about horse racing!

Vets League

We have learned that Phoenix A have withdrawn from Division 2 of the Vets League.

All clubs in their division should therefore be advised that their fixtures will no longer take place, and there will be a bye for those games for all future fixtures.

However, please remember that the Phoenix B team also play in Division 2 - their fixtures are unaffected and will take place as detailed on the previously issued fixture lists.

Brinsworth Bowling Club

Due to building works to the new Community Centre, the front car park will be out of use. There is a car park on Field View to the rear of the site, so anyone visiting Brinsworth Bowling Club should use this car park, wheretheir is ample parking space. There is a footpath from here which goes past the children's play area, which then brings you to the bowling green.

When approaching from Bawtry Road along Brinsworth Lane, Field View is the third road on the left, and is the last turn-off before you usually reach the Community Centre car park.

Information and document downloads

To avoid having to scroll down this home page to access the various document downloads issued at the start of the 2017 season, we have created a separate page where they will all be gathered together.
Further items will be added to this page as the year progresses.
Please note that a printable version of the Constitution, which is required to be available at every club during the season, is also available on the downloads page, so there should be no problems in clubs obtaining extra copies if necessary.

Copies of the Calvert Cup and Club Champions entry forms/rules will be available shortly.

And Terry would probably appreciate the extra space in his garage!!

Major road works in the Anston area

We have been advised by Anston BC that the A57 is having major road works from Anston to Worksop starting 4th April for 12 weeks.
They suggest that, to avoid this, people travelling from Worksop come through Woodsetts turn left after Woodsetts onto Woodsetts Road,.and then at the junction in North Anston left again down the hill to the Bowling Green.
Similarly from Sheffield, come off at the Todwick roundabout towards Dinnington and then take the first right at the cross roads past the dumpit site into the village. Turn left at the junction through Old Anston up the hill, turn left at the
main road and down to the bowling green.
Unless of course Sat Nav says different!
Please allow extra time for travelling until these road works are completed.

Friday fixtures

To resolve some green sharing issues, a small number of changes have had to be made to the Friday Doubles fixtures.

In all cases, all that has been necessary is the home and away legs between the two teams have been reversed from the list issued earlier this month.

Revised versions are now available as downloads on this web site, but the affected games are as follows:

Stag A v Tabard (fixtures of 26th May and 18th August reversed)
Stag B v Maltby Community (fixtures of 2nd June and 25th August reversed)

Brinsworth B v Phoenix B (fixtures of 28th April and 21st July reversed)
Swallownest B v Phoenix B (fixtures of 5thMay and 28th July reversed)
Phoenix B v Wickersley CI (fixtures of 12th May and 4th August reversed)
Phoenix B v Anston BC (fixtures of 2nd June and 25th August reversed)
Phoenix B v Bradgate (fixtures of 16th June and 8th September reversed)
Phoenix A v Spartans (fixtures of 9th June and 1st September reversed)

We apologise to the teams affected for the need to make these changes, but if there are any problems caused, please attempt to resolve things between team captains or let the Registrar know.

Finally, my email address is now functioning again, and all outstanding correspondence will be dealt with as soon as possible. The promised contact sheets will be distributed in the next 24 hours - please advise if there are any changes to your team/club's details.

Stones Cup update

Apologies to the extremely late posting of news of the semi-finals and final of the Stones Cup for 2016. The full results are availble by clicking on the Stones Cup link on the left of your screen, but for those who have not noticed, Firbeck beat Wickersley CI by a comfortable margin, but it was a far different story in the other semi-final, where Dinnington beat Treeton in the most dramatic of circumstances.
After all four matches were played, the scores were level at 69-69, and two games were won by each team. Under competition rules, that meant that a 'sudden death' end had to be played. Dinnington won the toss and set the jack, and went on to win the end by a single point, meaning that they went through to the final, which was played at Shireoaks in early October.

Despite comments from some people regarding the location chosen for the final, the final was well attended with over 50 spectators to see Dinnington face Firbeck. It was a keenly contested final, with the outcome by no means certain until the final game was played. In the end, Firbeck A won 72-67 to take the trophy.

Thanks also go to Shireoaks, who were great hosts for the final, with the green in very good condition, considering it was early October.
