QUARTER FINALS – played at Kettering Lodge BC on Sunday, 7th July, 2019.

1. Tim Chapman, Peter Morris, Roger Tansley & Mick Sharpe, Kingsthorpe BC beat Bryn Walker, Paul Coley, Nigel Hawkins & Walt Winsor, Wellingborough BC 15-14 shots.

What a close match this turned out to be with Wellingborough starting off very well with a 5-0 lead after 4 ends, but then Kingsthorpe won the next 4 ends and collected 9 shots, including a 4 for a 9-5 lead, and with just single shots scored over the next 4 ends Mick and his men kept ahead 12-6. The next 2 ends saw the determination of Walt & his men for they collected a good 4 and a double to tie things up at 12 each, and with one end left Walt’s Wellingborough men were just 1 shot up at 14-13, but the last end produced a double for Mick and his men for a passage to the Semi-Finals.

2. Will Clelland, John Bookless, Brian Diver & Norman Gibb, Corby Seagrave House BC beat Andy Cragg, Tom Fuins, Geoff Hayter & Rod Rigby, Bugbrooke BC 17-13 shots

In this match Bugbrooke won more ends than Corby Seagrave House, but 8 of the 10 were singles, whereas the 8 from Corby included a 5 and two 3’s. Bugbrooke scored first with a double, but that 5 came next for Corby, and after 5 ends Norman & his men were 9-3 up, and after dropping two singles, they picked up a 3 to go 12-5 ahead, and then followed 5 singles of which 4 went to Rod and his men for them to close to 9-13 with 5 ends left to play. In picking up a treble on the 17th end, Bugbrooke gave themselves a chance at 13-16 with one end left, but Norman and his men got a single for the win.

3. Richard Horrell, Barry Melville, David Bailey & Terry Cutting, Thrapston BC beat Phil Reeve, Tony Aston, Dave Vernon & Pat McAlwane, Abington BC 22-6 shots

In this match Thrapston started very well indeed, and after 6 ends of play they were 10-0 up, and after dropping two singles, they added 5 more to their score, including a 4, to be further ahead at 15-4. Things did not get any better for Pat & his Abington men, for they were stuck on that 4 for 4 ends as terry & his men added 7 more shots to lead 22-4 with 3 ends to play. Abington picked up a 2 on the 16th end, but it was not enough and they conceded victory to Thrapston.

4. Alan Coleman, Terry Brown, Tony O’Leary & John Freeman, Abington BC beat Tony Gilbert, Malcolm Winckles, Pat Crouch & Carl Haines Desborough Town BC 15-14 shots

Another very close finish in the end, but at the halfway mark it did not look like an Abington win. Desborough restricted John & his men to just two singles in the first b8 ends, whilst they were scoring well to lead 13-2, with the 9th end being particularly good for them when picking up a big count of 5. The Abington players, however, dug in deep, and with their vast experience, they then restricted Carl & his men to just one more shot on the 11th end, as they t ‘went to town’ in scoring 13 shots for the narrowest win.

SEMI-FINALS – played at Kettering Lodge BC on Sunday, 7th July, 2019

1. Alan Coleman, Terry Brown, Tony O’Leary & John Freeman beat Richard Horrell, Barry Melville, David Bailey & Terry Cutting 18-15 shots

Thrapston started well in winning the first 2 ends with doubles, but the next 5 ends were all Abington as they scored very well to take a good 11-4 shots lead after 7 ends. After 10 ends of play John & his men were still 12-7 up, and with a 4 and a single on the next 2 ends, that became 17-7 with 6 ends to play. Terry & his men won the next 4 of those last ends to give themselves a chance at 12-17 down, but after dropping a single on the 17th end they were presented with a 6 shots deficit playing the last end, which they did win with 3 shots, but it was Abington through to the Final.

2. Tim Chapman, Peter Morris, Roger Tansley & Mick Sharpe, Kingsthorpe BC beat Will Clelland, John Bookless, Brian Diver & Norman Gibb, Corby Seagrave House BC 22-16 shots

In this match Corby Seagrave started pretty well in posting a 5-2 shots lead after 4 end, but the next 4 ends were all Kingsthorpe as they scored 11 shots without reply to take a very good 13-5 lead, although Norman & his men were in there fighting hard and in collecting two trebles to a double conceded, they got within 4 shots at 11-15 down with 7 ends left to play. Mick & his men struck back hard with a good 4 on the next end, and after dropping a double, they scored 3 more shots to lead 22-13 with 3 ends left to play. Norman & his men won all 3 of those ends, but just in single counts, so it was the Kingsthorpe men who are through to the Final.

Congratulations to the Semi-Final winners, who will now contest the County Final at Northampton Express BC at 10.0 a.m. on Sunday, 28th July, 2019, with the prize for the winners qualification for the National Finals at Royal Leamington Spa next month.
