Match to celebrate anniversary

NORTHAMPTONSHIRE Indoor Bowling Association was recently the guest association to visit Northampton and District IBC to help celebrate the club’s 25th anniversary.

The county team had no fewer than eight former presidents in the team, plus a number of executive officers.

Owing to the huge loss on just one rink, they succumbed to defeat to the host club by nine shots.

The Northampton club’s huge winning-rink did so by 51 shots to five shots against. This aggregate made all the difference to the result because otherwise rink wins were shared and the county’s losing rinks did so by relatively modest margins.

Final score was Northamptonshire 167 shots – Northampton and District IBC 176 shots.
