Carl Elston Write Up

 We start this week the the round the board league. First game I have is the cricket club v kings arms. With the kings lads getting a good win 7-2 away from home. 

Kings Arms
Cricket Club

Across the water next to Conway where the comrades hosted llandudno athletic. With the home team taking the spoils with a 7-2 home win. Staying on that side of the A55 the pen y Bryn A took on their local rivals the pen y Bryn B and what looked to be a very close game with the B edging it 5-4. Travelling back towards llandudno now and off to penrhynside where the cross keys played host to the Virginia. Another tussle here with the away team winning 6-3. Back in to town for the final match with the Labour club taking on townhouse with the home side winning 7-2. On to the 501 league now. First game up was the buffs derby with the A at home to the B. A couple of close games here but the A taking the win 7-3 with Richie protheroe taking out a 106 finish. And also Danny Owen and rango throwing some brilliant darts in their doubles game. Next up is the Alex pen, v penrhyn arms with the arms lads taking the win 7-3. Last card received is the old hall v maelgwyn B and a good win for the home side 7-3 despite Bob Wilson having a 19 and 21 darts legs. Please everyone ensure you put any achievements on the Back of the cards. It’s always good to give recognition. Player of the week this week is shared between Richie protheroe and bob Wilson, their prize is a twix to share. Good luck to all this week. Carl.

I’d like to congratulate the Kings Arms on a momentous win at the Cricket Club. Just like the Maelgwyn in the “501” the Cricket Club team has dominated and this win shows how well the Kings Arms team has done. Without their star player in Paul Thornton who was away on holiday, the Kings capitalised on this.  Mike Williams led from the front as he beat Tom Thornton in the opening game, and Rob Thorpe taking an excellent scalp as beat Malcolm Sprague in the next game. But the Cricket Club have not been a top team without their own star players and back they came with wins for Chris Hornikel and Mark Nellist to level the match at 2 a peice, but last years players league champion and currently leading this years as well Brian Beacher pushed the Kings Arms noses in front again with an excellent win over Andy Christian and then Ian Adamson placed the Kings in commanding position as he beat John Gregory to put the team 4-2 up in the singles. There was no living with Kings in the doubles as they took all three doubles 2-0 and secured all three points. Again well done the Kings on a fantastic performance.

In the Premier “501”, Pete Sim-Mutch of the Maelgwyn ‘A’ leading the table from Paul Eccles of the Pen Golf ‘A’. If this what happens when you lose a bit of weight Paul I’m going to have to get onto slimming world. 🙂

Early days yet and some players have had a blank night so it will be as we get nearer the christmas period that the table will be looking more correct.
