Bowlers launch cam­paign to give Wed­nes­day num­bers a boost

Caernarfon Herald - - FAMILY ANNOUNCEMENTS -

RE­NEWED ef­forts will be made by bowls en­thu­si­asts in the com­ing weeks and months to at­tract new teams to boost the mem­ber­ship of the un­der­strength An­gle­sey/Ban­gor and District League’s Wed­nes­day Di­vi­sion.

Dur­ing the 2017 sea­son, just seven teams were in­volved and the de­ci­sion on the 2018 line-up will be made at the league’s AGM in Jan­uary.

A league mem­bers’ meet­ing, hosted at Bethesda, con­ducted a re­view of the re­cent sea­son and came up with pro­pos­als for the AGM.

One of the ma­jor top­ics was the Wed­nes­day Di­vi­sion’s nu­mer­i­cal weak- ness and, in that con­text, Cric­ci­eth in­di­cated they in­tended to ap­ply to join but Caernar­fon, bot­tom last term, are ex­pected to drop out.

Hints were made by Menai Bridge that they were con­sid­er­ing ap­ply­ing and ex­ist­ing mem­bers Bethesda are think­ing of en­ter­ing a sec­ond team.

Beau­maris A were Wed­nes­day Di­vi­sion cham­pi­ons last sea­son, while Llangefni re­tained the 10-team Mon­day Di­vi­sion ti­tle.

Changes are mooted for the league Pres­i­dent’s Day sin­gles’ com­pe­ti­tion, to give the event an early sea­son date rather than late on to im­prove its sig­nif­i­cance, and a com­bined league sin­gles’ cham­pi­onship is also be­ing ad­vo­cated, in­stead of sep­a­rate events for the Mon­day and Wed­nes­day Di­vi­sions.

Ar­range­ments for the Eric Whit­worth Cup and Fes­ti­val Cup, the Mon­day and Wed­nes­day Di­vi­sion knock­outs, are likely to be al­tered.

In­di­vid­ual bowlers with best ag­gre­gate records for 2017 were pre­sented with their awards

They were: Mon­day Di­vi­sion’s best senior, Kevin Fal­lowes (Beau­maris) and best ju­nior, Fin­lay Pry­d­derch (Caernar­fon); the Wed­nes­day Di­vi­sion cor­re­spond­ing win­ners, Tim Wil­liams (Beau­maris A) and Han­nah Jones-Wil­liams (Caernar­fon).
