Beckingham trio win Open Championship

Beckingham’s John Cawkwell, Bill Bryan and Pete Cawthorne triumped over Marton in the final of Wheatley’s Open Championship on Sunday.

The Gainsborough Standard Bowls League players won three of the four rinks for a comfortable home victory over Wheatley to remain in title contention.

The following day saw away wins for both Isle of Axholme Pensioners’ League teams, with the Central team winning both rinks to take all six league points against Marshall B, and the Northern team sharing the rinks against Misterton, but winning on aggregate.

The I. of A. Evening league players visited Misterton but went down eight points to two.

The club has cancelled their Anniversary Triples competition, due to be held on Sunday, due to insufficient entries, but intend to proceed next year.

Entries for The Open Pairs at Beckingham on 20th July are starting to build up.
