Accolades & bacon butties in the sunshine

Winter League

Before start of the final round of Division 2 matches at Springwood on Wednesday, a few presentations were made to club stalwarts who have made such a huge contribution to the success of the winter season at Springwood.

Mike Ralph referred to them as unsung club heroes and named them as Colin Hampshaw for his preparation of the weekly Meat Board which has been top raffle prize all season as well as other duties including helping with the weekly car parking jigsaw. John Pix is the greenkeeper who received many accolades this first season from the different club bowlers was also acknowledged with a gift from the club. Then all the catering team of which he believed that there were about 10 that have helped out at various times throughout the season but naming the four regulars as Josie, Helen, Evelyn and Linda. Warm and deserved applause for all the stalwarts from all the teams was well received.

With all that out of the way the bowling could commence and with nothing at stake and the bacon butties and sausage sandwiches going down well and the sun shining it became a social occasion. On the green, we had two close matches and two not so close. Lindley Lib cemented their runner-up position with a 6-2 win over the hosts representing Springwood 'A' but the 57-54 aggregate difference shows that this result was in doubt right until the end.

An even closer encounter when Thorpe Green 'B' and Huddersfield Recreation Club 'A' faced each other with a 57-56 aggregate advantage for Thorpe Green enabling them to level the division of points to 4-4.

Jackson Bridge overwhelmed Almondbury BC to run out 8-0 winners and Denby Dale finished the season by completing a double over Paddock I&C this time by 6-2.
