Another new knockout competition inaugurated in 2022 was the Club Triples. The two teams that reached the final, which was played on Friday 2nd December, are pictured below:
L-R; Robbie Hubbard, Geoff Worrall, Russ Malin, Mary Mullane, Dave Austin and Keith Boak.
One of the bowlers involved, Keith Boak, kindly provided the following report:
'It was a close fought game with only 1 point between the teams for most of the game - it was 8-8 at halfway, and a little later the scoreboard read 13-13-13.
Unusually, we were 2-up going into the last end, and we were still ahead with the skips to play. Geoff fired which resulted in them going 3-up and then blocked with his final bowl. Mary had the last bowl and after a long pause to study the head, delivered a surgical draw to clinch the win. The supporters seemed to enjoy it more than the players.'
The winners were presented with their trophy by club captain John London and can be seen here celebrating in the clubhouse.
