Report Semi Finals & Finals Day 2023
The draw for the semi finals took place on the day and saw Thurlton ‘A’ from Lowestoft Area play West Suffolk representatives Boxford, with the other pairing being the Two Ipswich qualifiers Borough of Eye ‘A’ verses Felixstowe & Suffolk.
In very warm conditions all teams were probably grateful for a morning start, neither of the semi finals were especially close affairs with Thurlton running out comfortable 91 to 46 shot winners and Felixstowe & Suffolk heading host club Borough of Eye ‘A’ by 19 shots 87 to 68 in the other semi.
A break followed which saw £50 cheques presented to both losing semi finalist teams and the prize draw take place, with thanks to those who donated prizes and purchased draw tickets.
The final in the end was not that close, but at the half way stage it was all square with Thurlton ‘A’ forging ahead between the 10th and 14th end and finishing with a 16 shot win 73 to 57.
After the trophy presentation by league Chairman Mike Salter a buffet was provided for the teams and officials, with thanks to the Borough of Eye BC / Paul Jackson and his helpers. In addition thanks must go to the green keeping and bar staff along with umpire Colin Buck.
