St Bede’s prove too strong for Mill­brow as they claim the sil­ver­ware

Runcorn & Widnes Weekly News - - Theguide -

THE first cup fi­nal of the year in the Widnes Domino League was fought out between St Bede’s ‘B’ and Mill­brow ‘B’ at Farn­worth Sports & So­cial Club as the teams fought for the Bat­tle of Bri­tain Cup.

Mill­brow won the drop. How­ever, their pair­ing of Ken Shin­gler and Brian Bishop proved that hav­ing the drop does not al­ways work in your favour. The pair­ing of Gra­ham Lu­cas and John Parker were too good for their op­po­nents win­ning the con­test 2-1.

Un­de­terred by their op­po­nents’ good start, Mill­brow de­cided that Syd Attwood and Trevor Pic­ton were the pair to un­set­tle St Bede’s next duo.

They were up against a good team in Vin Murty and De­nis Kin­sella. Sadly for Mill­brow they were over­come with­out win­ning a leg.

There then fol­lowed a short break for re­fresh­ments in which time both cap­tains Jim Swain and Tony Barker could rally their troops.

Jim’s teamtalk worked the bet­ter as the pair from St Bede’s, Harry Pot­ter and Pe­ter Craig, proved the suc­cess­ful pair­ing as they over­came Olly Kerr and Ken Leth­bridge 2-0 thus en­sur­ing the match went no fur­ther with St Bede’s run­ning out the win­ners 3-0.

Con­grat­u­la­tions go to them and com­mis­er­a­tions to Mill­brow.

Many thanks also to match ref­er­ees Andy and Tony and to Farn­worth for spon­sor­ing the cup and pro­vid­ing the ex­cel­lent buf­fet on the night. ●
