The Altrincham & District L.V. Bowling League is one of the most successful Crown Green Bowling Leagues in the North West. There are currently 3 divisions in the evening league, each with 13 teams in each division with 10 players in each team in Divisions 1 & 2 and 9 players in each team in Division 3. The League is open to both male and female bowlers of bona fide bowling clubs playing on both Monday and Friday evenings, so there is capacity for other clubs / teams to apply to join.

The Thursday afternoon Vets League is becoming more popular every season with more bowlers attaining the vets age of 55 to qualify. The Vets League plays each Thursday afternoon, 8 players a side, culminating in an end of season Vets Knockout Trophy Competition.

At the recent L.V. Bowling League Presentation Evening held at Cringlewood Social Club, Northern Moor, the League presented trophies to all successful clubs, teams and individuals in both the Evening and Vets Leagues, with cash prize money in excess of £12,000 being paid out on the night so the Management Council must be doing something right in the way that the L.V. League is managed and run. 

 

YOUR COUNTY NEEDS YOU !!!

 

Cheshire County Bowling Association desperately needs young bowlers to keep the County junior section running.

If you are a Bowling Club Secretary,  grand parent, parent or just a friend of a junior Crown Green Bowler, aged between 9 and 17 years of age and they wish to be trained to County standard in the coming New Year, then please contact the Cheshire County Bowling Association Secretary, or any other Cheshire County Bowling Association Official, details of which are in the Cheshire County handbook, or Mr Mike Procter on 01625 614731 or e-mail: mikeprocter1@sky.com with the juniors details.

The County Junior Section is desperate to recruit young bowlers, so if you know of anybody who is good, keen and willing to undergo training then please contact any of the above please.

altalt

Last night, Friday 27th July, we experienced a wonderful night of Crown Green bowling from the 8 bowlers who were contesting the L.V. League Senior Merit Final, for the Peacock Cup.

Mike Geraghty from Lloyds played extremely well in his early games to get through to another Senior Merit Final.

John Davies from the Victoria club at Stockport had a fight in his first game against Dave Banks from Monton, John eventually winning 21-18. 

Both Mike Geraghty & John Davies had comfortable wins in the semi finals.In the final, John Davies took control of the match and despite a late rally by Mike, John won the game 21-17 and claimed the Peacock Cup for the 2nd time.

The Metros green was again in superb condition and thanks go to the bowling committee at Metros for allowing the competition to be played there and for their excellent facilities. Thanks and well done to the markers, Dave Stott,Keith Walden & Ron Goddard.

Above pictures show both Mike Geraghty & John Davies before they played the final, then John being presented with the Peacock Cup by the LV President Steve Cook.
