Victory for New Brighton Vikings in Championship clash
THE Merseyside CGBA Team Championship was held at the Ball Hotel in Widnes on Saturday and was won by New Brighton Quarry Vikings, who defeated the Walnut Tree in the final.
Chris Barton's 21-04 gave them a great start and with two other single figure winners the team from Wirral had a decisive victory.
This means that the New Brighton Club will go on to represent Merseyside in the World Club Championship Tournament early next year.
The final stages of the Ashman pairs was played on the Heswall RBL green the same day and, after a series of close games, was won by the Birkenhead Park pairing of Steve Wharton Snr and Stan Kelly who beat the Gladstone partnership of John Finch and Chris Barton. A great victory for the two Birkenhead players.
Semi-finals: S Wharton and Stan Kelly (Birkenhead Park) 15, D Jeffries (Gladstone) and K Ivers (Cammell Laird) 13; J Finch and C Barton (Gladstone) 15, J Ellis (Gladstone) and J Smith (Cammell Laird) 06.
Final: Wharton and Kelly 15, Finch and Barton 13.
It has been a busy week for the new Birkenhead League second division champions Heswall RBL 'B'.
On Monday they were well beaten by their first division opponents Gladstone in the final of the Birkenhead and Wirral Cartwright Cup.
Though Gladstone had to start with a deficit of 48, by the end of the match they had steam rollered their way to a 49-point victory. For Gladstone Liam Ryan had a tremendous 21-02 win while Alan Favager's 21-19 victory was the Heswall team's best.
However on Saturday the team had some consolation for this defeat when they reached the final of the Cheshire Association's Norman Cup by beating LMRCA in the semi final.
It has not been a great season for Albany but it was good news for the Club when Albany 'B' won the Wirral and District's Frank Hurst Trophy beating Grange in the final at Royden Hall last Wednesday.
Going into the final stages of the match Grange had a slight lead but with three winners in the back four Albany came from behind to snatch victory by just seven shots.
For Albany 'B' Dave Roberts top scored with a 21-09 win while for the Grange John McLoughlin had a great 21-08.
Sad to hear that Peter Smeaton of Thingwall BC passed away suddenly last Wednesday. Sincere condolences to Peter's family and the Thingwall Club.
