Latest News

3/7/2022: ABINGTON REACH BENS TRIPLES FINAL

ANOTHER THREE names for the county honours board. Debbie Bradshaw, Diana Brown and Barbara Astle have reached Bowls Northamptonshire's Benevolent Triples final.

They had been placed in the slightly less hectic lower half of the draw, but still had to win three games in two days to get to this point. And with their biggest winning margin of the run being just four shots, it shows they never had a moment to breathe easy, except for immediately after each success was confirmed.

 

It's the second year running Abington have made the final of 'the Bens' - and it was very nearly an all-Abington affair this time. Sadly, Gill Crossley's trio, after a magnificent 22-6 thrashing of Abbey Park's Janet Swift in the quarter-final, couldn't get past Alison Dring of Wellingborough in the other semi. Hopefully, their clubmates will fare better.

Results haven't been quite so uplifting for the men of Abington. Three entrants in the county pairs made their group final on Friday 1st July, but none went any further. And on the Saturday, Abington placed only 22nd in the final reckoning of the Manfield Cup. Just a single winning rink (skipped by Phil Reeve), and one drawn. Nonetheless, the post-event BBQ went a lot better, enticing plenty back to HQ.

27/6/2022: ABINGTON ARE currently finding it tough in the top flight of the Monday Triples League, but the story was happier further down the divisions this week.

For the second week in a row, Abington A took only one of the five points from a game they so very nearly won. The margin of defeat was even more agonising, as Desborough A won by just a single shot on the aggregate. All three rinks conceded on the final end, and the As slipped down to sixth in the 1st Division. The gap to the top teams is still easily surmountable, with Earls Barton A's surprise win over Kingsthorpe A shaking up the order, but Abington would still be amongst the leaders were it not for these last-end heartbreaks.

 

Meanwhile, the B-team got back on track in Division 2 with a needed 4-1 win at Whyte Melville. Oddly, they stay in fourth place even as the teams either side of them swap positions. Nevertheless, the four points keeps them on the tail of the second promotion spot, with Wootton Grange A tightening their hold on first place.

 

And down in Division 5, the C-team steamrollered their opposition for the second week running to stay in second. 69-31 and all five points from Kingsthorpe C as they reach their halfway point of the campaign. The bulk of this pasting came from Fred Bosworth's rink who ran up a simply ludicrous 38-8 scoreline. 16 shots were added over the last four ends.

25/6/2022: THE WOMEN'S club competition sheets have now been uploaded onto the website. You can see them here, with the men's club comps here
