Tis the week before Christmas

Winter League

A preview of the Division 3 matches to be played on Monday 20 December


It is the week before Christmas and the last round of fixtures of 2021 at Thorpe Green take place on Monday. The fixture of most interest this week in Division 3 is with the leaders Thorpe Green 'C' taking on third-placed Brockholes with the two teams separated by 8 points. Both have won 5 of their 9 matches to date in the most competitive of the three divisions in the Winter League. The Thorpe Green side hasn't been beaten since the opening day of the season, a run of eight matches without defeat and that run includes an 8-0 whitewash win over Brockholes in mid-October.

Lindley BC 'B' know which of those two teams they are hoping come out on top as they sit 6 points adrift of the leaders and a game in hand and, with the right results, could take over at the top this week. They will not be phased by their bottom-of-the-table opponents Springwood 'B' who reverted to type last week after clocking up their first win of the season the week before.


Rastrick 'B' shared the points with Thorpe Green 'C' last week which means they have still only had one win in their last 6 matches after starting the season with three straight victories. This week they take on Lowerhouses 'B' whose aim of moving away from the nether regions of the table has faltered after two successive defeats.


Dalton are on a good run of four matches unbeaten although three of those were drawn and they meet the bottom two teams in their next two matches so will expect to extend that unbeaten run. This week they face Huddersfield Recreation Club 'B' who ended a run of 7 defeats last Monday when doing well to beat Milnsbridge 'B' 6-2


This is the last round of fixtures before the Christmas break as there will be no matches between Christmas and the New Year. A last chance for watching some bowling in 2021 awaits everyone who cares to join the party at Thorpe Green on Monday with the action starting from 12noon.
