Winter Cup Finals Day

Winter League

The third staging of the Winter Cup will be held at Lindley Liberal Club this Sunday starting at 1.00pm. There are just eight bowlers left in the running from 142 that entered this year's competition and not one of last year's last eight reappears this time around.

There is a good mix of team representatives with Linthwaite Hall, Cowcliffe and Marsh United all having two bowlers in the final eight. In addition four of the League's eight divisions have an interest in the outcome. One of the four Scratch bowlers still in contention is Tony Butterfield of Kirkheaton Con and Tony would be a popular winner as he and teammate Garry Senior donated the trophy to the League along with a suggestion of the format which has proven to be a real attraction for an increasing number of bowlers. That has probably put the mockers on Tony getting any further but regardless of all that we will have a new name to add to the trophy which is now in its third year of existence.

Three of the final eight are lady bowlers and we are set for an interesting day of bowling at Lindley Lib on Sunday afternoon.
