Coming up this week ...

Portal News

No bowling to talk about but still plenty going on as we look forward to what will be appearing on the website this week. Difficult to look forward so let's take a look back and go back to 1954 when the News of the World Yorkshire County Championship was staged at Moldgreen Con. Six Huddersfield bowlers among the last 16 including the winner of the title. We share a copy of the Finals Day programme with all the results pencilled in.

As well as that we also expect to be posting other news every day of the week which will also include ....

  • Still more 'Name the Foreign Green' competitions featuring greens just outside the town boundaries

  • A Bowling/Huddersfield/General Knowledge crossword

  • All Our Yesterdays featuring a potted history of Springwood BC from when it was first founded in 1909

  • Copy of the programme from the Final of the News of the World Yorkshire County Championship staged at Moldgreen Con in 1954. A rare retro look back.

  • The GreenFinder collection of 89 greens added to the website

  • More photographs added to the Veterans League online album from 2015

  • ... and probably lots more news we are still to learn about some of which might even come from you. Tell us your club news.

The Top Five most viewed posts over the last week were:

  1. Name The Foreign Green

  2. Michael Dyson R.I.P.

  3. YCCGBA wide-reaching memo

  4. Veterans League 2020 Balance Sheet

  5. £6,000 Financial support for local bowling clubs

The homepage photograph has changed today from the unique design of the clubhouse at Thongsbridge to a rotating quartet of photographs from the Veterans League 2019 Rose Bowl Finals Day at Almondbury BC. A remarkably hot day with great high-quality competitive bowling played in the friendliest of spirits. A classic.
