Bowdon beat Crake Valley to win the NWF Weekend AC Handicap League, 20th August

Bowdon hosted Crake Valley in the North West Federation Weekend AC Handicap League on Sunday 20th August, and won in impressive style, 5 – 2. That win takes Bowdon to joint top spot in the league with Bury Caesars, both teams on 5 wins from 7 matches. However the league rules state that, “in the event of a tie on match points, the team with the higher or highest number of net game points shall be declared the winner”. Bowdon’s net game score is 5 (27-22), compared with Bury Caesars’ 4 (25-21). Thus Bowdon have won the league title. Well done Captain Dave Holland, and all those who have played for our Weekend AC Handicap League over the season. WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS.

What was particularly pleasing in the match was that our new members, Ed and Andy, won both their games. Ed won the doubles (with Dave) and a singles, whilst Andy won both his singles. A super start to what we hope will be regular league contributions from both players in the future. Well done Ed and Andy, you helped us to win the league.
