Central's women had a successful weekend in the County competitions with the rink of Carole Galletly, Pam Shepherd, Helen Young and Caroline Campion qualifying for the Bowls England National Fours Championship in August.

They had a close game on Saturday morning against Karen Alder's rink from West Witney, but came out 19-12 winners to claim a semi final place where they met the Banbury Chestnut's rink of Chris Purnell, Sheila Maishman, Pat Ray and Pat Taylor. The Central girls took the game 28-12 to book their place at Leamington.

 

South Oxford BC hosted Sunday's County rounds of the National Two wood competition and following on from her success in Saturday's Fours, Carole Galletly progressed through three rounds to reach the Final and at the same time qualify for another visit up the M40 to Leamington.

Banbury Central men returned to Witney Mills to play the Men's National Top club, four days after having lost there in the league.

Lee Young got Central off to a flying start with a comfortable 15-8 win in the Two-wood. After a tight start he found his form and the recalled Middleton Cup lead never looked troubled. 

AlanCarter, also on Middleton Cup duty this year, took over in the full singles and similarly eased to a  21-9 victory.

Yet another Central player featuring in this year's Middleton Cup team, Will Campion, paired up with Graham Morbey in the Pairs and fought a close to be 111-12 down after 14 ends. Things changed remarkably as they then took a six, a five and a four on consecutive ends to put the game beyond doubt, sucring a 32-13 win, which ensured an overall win for Cenral.

The Four of Chick Boyd, Nick Spencer, Andy Wilkin and Keith McNeil were always in control looking comfortable at 18-8 with five ends to go, but a spirited recovery by the Mills made it look closer, getting back to 16-20 down before Keith's men finished strongly, reasserting their authroity by winning the final two ends and finishing 26-16 winners.

Central's only defeat was in the Triples where Tom McKenna, Bob Joiner and Nigel Galletly were up against a very in-form Paul Robbins who had some telling woods that Nigel couldn't quite match, losing 14-20.

Overall a 4-1 victory gaining sweet revenge for the League defeat and moving on to play either South Oxford or local rivals Banbury Borough in the next round.

 

Women's National Top Club.

Central played Oxford Cioty & County in rainy conditions down at Oxford on Monday night.

In a closely fought contest the team came away with a 2.5 - 1.5 win.

The Pair of Pam Shepherd and Caroline Campion won comfortably 23-14, the singles was won 21-10 by Carole Galletly.

The Four of June Bone, Jenny Williams, Mary Tee and Mo Cox were under pressure from the start from a strong City & County rink skipped by current international Kath Hawes, supported by International Team Manager Gail Gilkes. They lost their game so it was all down to the triples to decide the match.

Central's Eloise Jones, Sue Waring and Helen Young kept it close throughout and managed to draw the game 16 all. to give Cenral the half point needed for the win.

Well done everyone. 

The club completed a clean sweep of victories over the last week.

Thame BC v Banbury Central BC - League Cup first Round.

On Thursday May 3rd Central went to Thame BC for the first round of the 2018 League Cup competition and came away with a good 73-49 victory.

Keith McNeil's high scoring rink of Stuart Boyd. Jim Gow and Andy Wilkin roared away to a 19-4 lead before dropping a 7 to give the Thame four some hope. It was quickly dashed on the next end with our boys picking up a six  and eventually running out 29-14 winners.

Nigel Galletly's rink of Ian Gilbert, Bob Joiner and Nick Spencer won 13 of the 18 ends played. In a tight game (4 all after 6 end and neither side scoring more than a two on any end, a good run of ends in their favour saw the Central lads end with a comfortable 17-7 win.

Les Campion's rink of Dave Green, Michael Andrew and Ian Whelpton was also tightlly contested (5 all after 6) but winning 12 of the 18 ends saw them run out 15-19 victors.

The only loss of the eveing was Will Campion's rink of Alan Carter, Luke Gilbert and club President Graham Morbey who shared the ends but dropped a few large scores, losing 12-18.

TThe next round is against Watlington, away again. in the quarter-final on August 16th.

 

The club started the new season last Sunday with a visit to the Startford Upon Avon bowls club, situated alongside the famous river. 

On a cold but dry afternoon, the match produced plenty of quality bowling from both clubs in the 18 end game and a win on all 5 rinks by the Central side who recorded a 107-62 victory.

Andy Winter, Jane Williams, Ian Gilbert and Graham Morbey led the team home with a 23-6 win ahead of Terry Ulph, Randy Chaney, Pam Shepherd and Keith Williams, second highest at 21-10. Sue Winter, Luke Gilbert, Carole and Nigel Galletly recorded a 9 shot win at 23-14. Two shots behind them on 24-17 were Jill Hart, Paul Humphris and Bob Joiner, but there was no record of whether or not this was with 25% removed from their scorecard. Even so, if not they were still one shot ahead at the finish. Jenny Williams, Pete Buzzard, Alan Carter and Will Campion rounded off the day with their 16-15 win, to send the Central bowlers home happy with their winning start to the season.

The outdoor season finished on a wet note but with an excellent game at home to our friends from Byfield.

Thanks to Nigel, Ron and Eric, my outdoor season finished on a high, thanks again lads.

I have had great pleasure in my role as Press Officer for the club and I also managed to please Steve at the BG. 

From the Press point of view, I have been able to report on great success for the club in both the County and at Leamington. It is great when a plan comes together.

 

Back to Sunday's game which was brought to a sudden halt, as we all abandoned ship when the Heaven's opened with a sudden deluge. The rinks were shared two apiece, with Byfield edging the game by one shot, 56-55. In the spirit of the game we loaned June and John Bone along with recent new boy Chris to our visitors to complete their line-up. You could say that the Bone's made a major contribution on the two rinks that went in Byfield's favour. John went in at lead, helping his new found team mates to a 17-8 win over Bob, Jenny, Andy and Terry, whilst June used her local knowledge to help her adopted rink go even better, with a 18-7 victory against Jim, Mo, Sue and Pete.

 

Thanks to the excellent trio around me, who covered my mistakes as we romped to a 21-9 win, and finally our captain Keith who has worked hard throughout the season in getting teams out and who showed his skipping prowess as, with help from Eloise, Melody and Graham he led his rink to a 19-12 success.

 

If only we had given the opposition someone else instead of the Bone duo!

 

That's it for the outdoors, next month we will be back indoors, where I will try to avoid a wrong bias and the potential hazard of my wood ending up in the swimming pool.

 

I will put my pen to paper again in the spring.

 

Our run of defeats continued on Thursday evening when we travelled down the road for an evening game at Adderbury and returned home having lost 75-115. This made it five losses in a row.

Mal's rink with Jon P, Graham and myself led after 15 ends only to let it slip and go down 12-18. 

Bob R, Sue Winter, Tony Lawford and skip Tom McKenna really suffered at the hand of the opposition, losing 13-35.

Mo moved to the back end of the rink and skipped Eric, Andy and Terry and things looked good until they dropped a six on the 19th end which led to their 19-21 defeat.

Bob Wilkins' rink with Sue Waring between two Ray's, unfortunately not of sunshine, were chasing the game from the start and ended on 16-25.

Our final rink skipped by Ron C, with Ann, Jane and Alan setting things up for him was the big plus of the night with their 21-15 shot win. Was the inclusion of two girls in this rink that made the difference.

 

Saturday's return match against Rugby Rail was was extremely tight but we managed to get back to winning ways, albeit by one shot, 110-109.

Andy, Sue Waring, yours truly, with Terry at skip won 19-12. I must have had some good wood's during the afternoon.

Eloise, Mo, Tony Smith and skip Jim had a much needed 27-16 win.

Kay, Jane, Ray and Tom Rogers found their opponents much to strong and lost 9-29.

Our triple on the day, Pete and Jill with Pam at skip had a tight game only to lose 17-21.

Pauline, Keith, Eric and Will who also looked after the bar, lost by one shot (the bowling kind) 18-19.

Last but not least, Paul at skip had the pleasure of bowling with Chris, Sue Winter and Jenny (two ladies again!) and came off the green with a 20-12 victory.

 

Byfield at home will hopefully be another win.

 

 

 

Congratulations to Carole Galletly on reaching the final of the National Mixed Fours at Leamington on Saturday along with team mates Kathy Hawes (Oxford City & County), Mark Sykes (Banbury Borough) and Howard Watts (Headington).

After wins against rinks from Sussex 22-16, Hampshire 21-14 and Derbyshire 25-19, there Essex opponents in the final took the lead in the sixth end and managed to stay in front for the rest of the game to run out 23-16 winners.

Our ladies exploits at Leamington in the National's started as slowly as was possible with Carole, Pam, Helen and Caroline going out of the Fours in the preliminary round on August 7th, followed by Myra and Helen going out in the first round of the Pairs ten days later.

The third week of the Championship's saw an improvement in the weather and with the sun on their backs, our Senior four of Mo Cox, Mary Tee, Carole Galletly and Caroline Campion showed their true form, with three good wins against Nottinghamshire, Dorset and Berkshire taking them into a semi-final against the Hertfordshire, Riverain rink.

A place in the final was not to be, but congratulations to one and all for such a sterling effort.

 

Sunday saw our girls contesting the County Top Club final at the Thame club, playing against the ladies from Shiplake Village B.C. and hoping to go one better than last year when they lost in a closely fought final against Thame.

 

This year they took the title with a comfortable 3-1 win.

Mo Cox, fresh (or tired) from her exploits at Leamington, got things off to a good start with a comfortable 21-7 win in the singles. Mary Tee and Pam Shepherd followed this up with a 32-16 Pairs win, whilst Eloise Jones, Gill Sharp and Myra Lewis wrapped up the Triples 23-13. The only lost point was in the fours where Melody Sykes, Bev McNeil, June Bone and Anne Norton lost out to their opponents 12-23.

 

Well done girls, after a dissapointing start to the month, you are leaving August on a high.

At last, the "A" team got their act together with an outstanding win, the best of their very few this season, in the final League game of the season, away to Oxford City & County "A".

After winning the County Offcers Cup the previous Sunday, Nigel continued his winning vein, collecting a vital 1 shot win 20-19 supported by his rink partners, Jim, Tom and Bob.

Graham, with Andy at three and father and son Ian and Luke at the front had a resounding 27-8 win, but even this was beaten by Alan, Lionel, Lee and Wills who romped home 33-10 winners.

Jon P, Stuart "Chick", Mike and Ian contributed 13 shots to Central's overall 93 shots but saw their opponents, led by the evergreen Alan Ley collect 25 which was only one short of half the City & County 52 scoreline.

 

The final readings showed Central in 5th place, half a point behind West Witney and only 2.5 points behind third place City & County. With last seasons League champions, Carterton, being relegated this season, it shows how competitive the league is and how easy it is to end up in trouble.

 

Let's hope that next season the title is within our sights rather than the threat of relegation.

Tune in next May when it will all start again.

 

The "A" team pulled out the stops last evening in their last league game of the season with a 5-1 win against Oxford City & County "A".

The win ensured another season in the leagues first division.

Well done to the boys for hanging in there.

Congratulations to Nigel Galletly on winning the Oxfordshire Bowling Association, Officers' Singles Cup.
 
The OBA Domestic Finals were held at the Witney Town Bowls Club last Sunday and Nigel took the Officer's Cup title 21-19, coming from behind in a tough close game against South Oxford's Keith Mobley.
 
Due to his semi-final opponent Tim Ludlow featuring in two semi-finals they had to play the semi earlier in the week, Nigel winning 21-15.
 
This is the second time Nigel has won this competition, the last time being in 2011.
 
Congratulation are also due to Ian Gilbert, who is comparatively new to the game, in reaching the semi-finals of the Allison Cup. In his semi he lost 14-21 to the eventual winner Brian Smith who was playing on his own green.
 
 
It's been another exciting week.
 
In the Oxfordshire Bowls League the Men's "B" team successfully put to bed any fears of relegation in Division 3, but the "A" team still have some work to do in their last league game of the season away to Oxford City & County "A" to ensure their safety from relegation after dropping too many points this week at home to Headington "A", already Division 1 champions for 2017.
 
The "B" team's 3-3 draw away to Chadlington was gained with three excellent winning rinks who unfortunately were unable collectively to cover the loss of the remaining foursome. 18-16 wins were recorded on the rinks of Tom, Alan, Graham and Keith, and Ed, John B, Tom R. and Terry. Team captain Mel along with Bob R, Tony and Eric went one shot better, winning 17-14. Ron C, Ron H, John H, and Bob W had to succumb to a strong Chadlington foursome 22-11, enough to give the home side the two points for the overall shots win.
 
The "A" team gave it their best against a Headington side that had already wrapped up this years league title, but had to settle for a 1.5 - 4.5 points defeat and a shot score of 68-83. Well done to Nigel, Jim, Lionel and Bob who held on for a   20-18 win. Will alongside, Alan, Paul and Lee was unlucky to have to share the points on their rink after going into the last end all square. Ian W with Jon, Stuart and Graham saw their tight game drift away over the last few ends, whilst Keith, Andy, Ian and Luke G battled hard without any reward.
It was interesting walking around the back of each rink with my beer noting the comradely attitude between the two clubs but still keen to win.
 
The girls were certainly 'singing in the rain' after another big win, 42-15 in their league game against the Woodstock/Kidlington side, with excellent bowling from all the team; Carole, Mary, Jill H, Pam, Jenny W, Jane, June, Ann, Eloise, Gill S, Helen and Caroline.
 
In the two friendlies it was a case of "AFTER THE LORD MAYOR'S SHOW". Tuesday's friendly at home to Middle Barton saw us win in style 76-59, however, Saturday's game away to Rugby Railway brought us back to earth, a very wet and soggy one, after losing out 60-99.
 

 
 
I enjoyed my trip to Leamington, despite the defeats of our girls in both competitions in games that would have been enjoyable to any neutrals watching.
 
Myra and Brenda (photo left) won their first game of the Senior Pairs 23-22 against a duo from the Goodwood club in Leicestershire, but found their next opponemnts from St.Austell, Cornwall too tough a pasty, losing 16-25.
 
In the Fours, Caroline, Carol, Pam and Helen gave it everything but found themselves 3 down going into the last end and finishing up losing 12-18.

Banbury Central women were involved in two County finals this weekend played at the Oxford City & County club.
 
In the mornings Fours, mother and daughter Caroline Campion and Helen Young teamed up with Pam Shepherd and Carole Galletly to win 20-15 against rink from West Witney, maintaining their slender lead to the end of a closely contesting game.
 
The afternoon session saw Helen featuring again, this time accompanying Myra Lewis in the Pairs. Unfortunately the mornings result could not be repeated and they finally lost out to their City & County opponents by 4 shots.
 
Both the Central teams will be representing Oxfordshire in the National Championships which start this weekend at Leamington.
 
We wish them every success.

 

 

We nearly had the perfect week with the girl's again in sparkling form in both the West Oxfordshire League and the County Top Club Trophy.

 

The girls certainly have produced a glorious run this season, beating Carterton/Burford this week,61-34. This resulted from three good rinks once again, with excellent performances from, Helen,Eloise,Jenny Gill, Pam, Bev, Jill, Anne, Mo, Mel, June and Mary.

 

The County Top Club found Mo defeated in the singles by one shot, whilst Mary and Pam won the pairs.

In the triples it was a win for Eloise, Myra and Helen followed by a win in the fours for Jill, Bev, Sue and Anne to book a place in the final against Shiplake Village in August.

 

As Hannibal said in the TV series "I LOVE IT WHEN A PLAN COMES TOGETHER", applied to the mens "A" team in the Oxfordshire Bowls League when they produced the right result against basement boys South Oxford "A" winning 87-65 and collecting a valuable 5 points in the process.

Will's rink had a thumping 30-12 win and it was nice to see Keith's rink at last get the rub of the green to help to snatch a one shot win, 15-14. Mick's rink provided another point with their 25-17 victory, whilst Nigel's rink just missed out on a perfect result going under 17-22.

 

The "B" team's two shot defeat away to Hanbourough proves how close it is in their division behing runaway leaders Charlbury. Jim Pickering's rink won 23-14 and Tom McKenna's rink won by the closest margin 16-15. Ron's four drew 15-15 but unfortunately for Central, Mal's rink lost 13-25, which left the host's two shots in front  on 69-67 and a points result in their favour of 3.5 to Central's 2.5.

 

An exciting week for the club resulted in another heavy win for the ladies. Both mens league teams gained valuable league points. But the ‘A’ team relegation fight will go to the wire.

The ‘B’ team drew and intriguingly the way it’s going in this division makes good copy for all to read.

The friendly home game was against Chandos Park, what a difference a week can make a 27 shot win followed by a 40 shot defeat. You win some, you loose some. A bad day at the office.

The scores in all games as follows: Ladies first: Carole Galletly, Jenny Williams, Anne Norton and Mary Tee - a game of two halves, from 10-2 down to win 18-15.

Caroline Campion, Myra Lewis, Jane Williams and Helen Young a convincing win 29-8.

Pam Shepherd, Eloise Jones, June Bone and Mo Cox another big win 22-13. This gave an overall total 69 to central and 36 to Witney Town.

The ‘A’ team away against West Witney saw wins for Nigel Galletly, Jim Gow, Bob Joiner and Lionel Lewis by 27-19 and also Will Campion, Alan Carter, Paul Humphris and Lee Young by 18-16.

Defeats on the other rinks for Ian Whelpton, Stuart Boyd, John Pardoe and Michael Andrew 10-23, and likewise for Keith Mcneill, Ian and Luke Gilbert with Graham Morbey 17-21. The overall result going 4-2 to West Witney.

The ‘B’ team against Bicester, resulted in a big win for Tom McKenna, Alan Roche, Graham Tilbury and Keith Williams 34-12.

Three defeats in other rinks for Ron Cox, John Hart, Terry Ulph and Ron Havard 18-24.

Ed Creed, John Bone, Paul Dobson and Tony Smith 16-26, also Mal Leather, Tony Lawford, Eric Trinder and Bob Wilkins 19-20, thanks to the cracking winning rink score they held on overall to win 87-82 shots giving the result 3-3.

The friendly home to the Buckingham based club, three triple defeats, Keith Williams, Sue Winter and Eloise Jones 11-21. Terry Ulph, Andy Winter and Jenny Williams 16-20.

The biggest defeat included myself with June Bone and Jill Hart 8-36, sorry ladies I could not see the woods for trees.

Well done Nigel Galletly, Pete Buzzard and Ron Havard a win 21-19
 

This weekend saw the final stages of the Women's County Pairs played at Oxford City & County BC in sometimes demanding conditions.

Banbury Central was represented by the pairs of Myra Lewis & Helen Young, and Carole Galletly and Caroline Campion.

Both teams progressed through the quarter finals in the morning by winning against teams from Eitney Town and West Witney by 5 and 7 shots respectively.

in the afternoon unfortunately they were drawn to play against each other. Myra and Helen came out winners in a closely contested game which was all square with one end to play.
