Garretts at heart of Silcock Cup glory day

First published in Sport

ALFORD Hall A overcame the challenge of Tetleys B to win the Warrington and North Cheshire Bowls Association Silcock Cup at the weekend.

Each team had five winners in a contest split by four chalks on the green, with the -10 handicap carried by Tetleys B from their victory in 2012 exaggerating the difference in performance.

John Garrett Jnr achieved the widest margin of victory, his 21-10 success coming against Maurice Bramhall for Alford Hall, who were making their first appearance in the final since 2010’s defeat to King and Queen A.

Damian Carroll’s 21-14 card and wins of 21-15 from John Garrett Snr and C Ure were also influential.

But the man-of-the-match award went to Tetleys’ Phil Lester after an epic tie against J Hallett that was eventually settled 21-20.

Results: Alford Hall A (0) 183 Tetleys B (h’caps +1, -10) 169: C Morris 13 N Simpson 21, J Garrett Jnr 21 M Bramhall 10, D Carroll 21 S Brown 14, C Wilson 14 J Bramhall 21, J Garrett Snr 21 R Timmis 15, J Hallett 20 P Lester 21, M Amherst 21 W Williams 20, P Garrett 16 J Bradshaw 21, C Ure 21 H Feather 15, J Green 15 D Roughley 21.
