Glossop Bowling Club - Finals Day 10 September 2017

They were watched on by other hardy members in the rain and cold winds to cheer on the winners and runner ups. Well done to all who came to watch and the winners and runners up. Please find below the results and the photos of the day.

Saturday Team Beat Etherow in Last Game of Season

Glossop Bowling Club Saturday team beat Etherow 12 points to 4 in the last game of the season in the Longendale League. They had six winners and managed to win the aggregate. It was a very rainy day. Congrats to Etherow for getting the green playable on such a wet day. It was a day more suited to ducks than bowls.

Get Together - Pairs Round Robin - A Great Time Had By All

A great time was had by all at the Pairs Round Robin on Sunday 20th August 2017. There was 11 pairs who played matches in two groups. The winners of each group played each other in the final. There was also a lot of people who came along to support the players. There was between 30 - 40 people attended. The weather stayed fine. The barbeque was a great success, we very much enjoyed Frank Hazelwood's chicken kebabs and the lemon drizzle cakes and blueberry muffins were delicious. Special thanks to Jenny Burgess, Jane Stanfield and Eileen Wood for organising the food.

The winners of the round robin were Pat Crichlow and Lyndon Ogden. The runners up were John Blurton and Tom Hughes. There is a few more pictures of the day. Special thanks to John Stevenson, Jenny and Jane with the draw and organising the games.
