Over-80s KO decimated by no-shows

Veterans League

The Preliminary Round of the Over-80's KO competition was blighted by the non-appearance of 5 of the 21 entries to this year's competition. Four of those no-shows were in the Paddock I&C leg of the opening round which resulted in just two matches being played there on the day.

Still in contention is three-time winner of this competition, Frank Greenwood of Golcar Lib, after he beat Brockholes bowler Les Chadwick 21-18 at Marsh United.

We have the eight names going forward to the quarter-finals which will be held on Thursday 31 August on a green still to be nominated. I am grateful to Bob Haigh for sending me a selection of photos taken at Marsh United and these are displayed below.

with reference to the 4 no shows at paddock, mike wood who entered from brockholes rang me at 08.30 on friday morning to inform me that he was unable to attend the prelims due to him having got a call from calderdale hospital at 0600 that morning , his wife barbara was seriously ill and urged him to get there a.s.a.p. i then rang john townend (the organiser at paddock) at around 0900 hrs to let him know that mike would not be attending. unfortunately barbara passed away in the early hours of this morning (sunday)
