TERRY SUMMERSGILL MEMORIAL TROPHY   7th April


On a pleasant Saturday afternoon 14 bowlers from Borough Bowling Club took on 14 bowlers from North Cliff Bowling Club for the Terry Summersgill Memorial Trophy. The game was always intended on being a social event with a raffle and tea and cakes to raise funds for St Catherine’s Hospice who had given great care to bowler Terry  in his final days

The day was a great success and Borough won eight out of the ten matches played to take home the trophy 

£551 was raised on the day and the following day Robin Hoods Bowling Club kindly donated their charity Car Parking fund of £235, which means a total of £786 will be donated to St Catherine’s Hospice

TERRY SUMMERSGILL MEMORIAL MATCH

On Saturday 7 April Eddie McCormack will lead a team of 12 friends of Terry's from North Cliff to play a similar team of 12 from Borough in what we intend to become a curtainraiser each season. We are going to run a raffle in order to raise money for St.Catherines Hospice who gave Terry some fantastic care for his final days. We have been pledged some special prizes already from members of other clubs which should help us raise a good sum of money in Terry's honour, and we hope as many members as possible will turn out to make this a special day.

BOROUGH WINTER MERIT

57 hardy winter bowlers turned out on a wet Sunday for the latest Crown Green Bowling Merit at  Borough Bowling Club
It was always going to be a tough contest to win and after Robin Hoods Bay's Tim Purcell defeated Borough's Ian Hadden 21-20 in a quality semi- final he looked a good bet with the local bookie
Castleford's Colin Schora had a different idea after dispatching Whitby's Alan Landers 21-18 in his semi-final
It was a ding dong final and Tim was 20-19 up with a good wood on the block when he looked to the bookie for his payout but he hadn't figured with Colin bowling a brilliant last wood to level the scores at 20-20 
Colin then made a brilliant lead on the next end that wasn't beaten to take the day in style.
Congratulations to Colin Schora and commiserations to Tim Purcell
A consolation tea and biscuits doubles contest was run for first game losers that was won 21-20 by Gary Pulestan and Phil Rippingale beating Kath Brown and Danny Cooper
