League Report Week 31 & 32
It was been a cracking two weeks shooting for those people following this who may be, three matches and a part week of competition in the under 30 average KO.
Firstly we have to report some sad news of the passing of another shooter in the league for the former Kingsley Wanderers team, son of Brian, Alan Kinneir tragically lost his fight with cancer and passed away peacefully our thoughts are with his family at this sad time. Alan was a keen golfer and a great man always welcoming and friendly at matches, he was liked by all we will not forget him as we haven't his fathe Brian.
Moving on to shooting matters now, Firstly the table toppers the Vocal visiting the Buzzcocks. The vocal started out with 33 from always reliable Dave Grant-Innes the closest score to him on their side was Steve Skears in the second half with a 32 with a cluster of 30's from the rest of the team. Buzzcocks on the other hand fired out the blocks like a cracker with TJ Long hitting a 33 to roll back the years, with a Dave Ramnarine 33 too they clinched a half time point, followed by Gary Markie 32 they stunned the Vocal into a win against the leaders 250 - 246.
Kingsley lying second must have got wind of this as they were fired up against the Barn Owl at home, PB started off hitting a 32, followed by Steve Shears and Emma shears with a pair of 34's, Kevin Hawkings and Steve Griffiths followed up these scores with a pair of 33's and with rest of the team hitting a good score they rounded out a 257 total. Barn owl struggled to match the scoring although Richard Spink hitting a 31 started them off well, before George Andrews pulled his first ever 31 out the bag they finished on 230.
The All Monks match between A and B became a bit one sided, with treble 30 for John Green, capt Helen Smith, and Steve Catling they posted a 230 total. Monks B' chasing this managed to rely on Liam Donnovan with 31 to help but ultimately the team suffered with some bad scores and finished on 205 to give the A' team the win.
