Having successfully competed in the early rounds of the Denny Plate, the West Berks Men bowled their way through to the semi finals of this national competition.
The QF match was played on Saturday, 20th January 2018 against Newquay at Taunton Deane, a neutral green. West Berks made a good start and went ahead 30-21 but then Newquay came back at them and closed the gap to 32-30. At 15 ends West Berks had pulled ahead again to 61-52. Newquay fought back hard to come within two shots at 73-71 and then went ahead. The atmosphere was tense but with the noisy encouragement and support of the West Berks ladies cheerleaders our chaps made one last big push with some awesome bowling. The final result was West Berks 84 – Newquay 77. Congratulations to all players – a fine achievement.
West Berks is proud to be one of only four clubs in the country still competing in the Denny Plate.
The semi-final will be played against Hounslow on Saturday, 10th March. Two rinks will be played at West Berks and two rinks away at Hounslow. This promises to be a great match and not one to be missed. Details of how you can support West Berks will follow.
