Into the Peter Ungless Final!
In an impressive victory, the team from Auriol (Brian Russell, John Ainsworth, Doreen Weight and Jan Kentish; Di Newman, Geoff Izzard, Shirley Tracey and Chris Munro) totally overwhelmed the team from Malden Manor, accruing a lead of over 40 shots, in the semi-final match held at Auriol on Sunday 29 July. Our thanks to the small but committed band of members who braved the damp & drizzly conditions to support our team.

After a nail-biting finish to the Home and Away legs of our annual Hazel Williams Trophy match against Burpham BC, Auriol won back the Trophy. The first leg ended in a draw, but Auriol won the second leg, at Burpham, by 5 shots (76-71), thus clinching the series. The picture shows our winning team at Burpham.
