Middleton Cup Report





Suffolk's opening game in group East B of the Middleton Cup was held last Saturday at Bramford BC against our old rivals Norfolk.


Before the start of the match, a minutes' silence was held in memory of Percy Rowe, who was himself a Middleton Cup semi-finalist in 1973


Norfolk got of to a flying start and built a lead of 20+ points. Then the tide turned and Suffolk began to pull back into the tie, cutting the Norfolk lead to 4 shots. The ebb and flow of the game again turned to favour Norfolk, taking their lead back to 22 points.. Suffolk again fought back but run out of ends, losing a hard fought match by 8 shots


Final Score: Suffolk 101 - 109 Norfolk

Points Score: Suffolk 6 - 16 Norfolk

Top Suffolk Rink: John Rednall, Jason Smith, Lee Calver, Richard Leeder


Our next match in the round robin group against Essex at Bramford BC on Saturday 15 June 2024 at Bramford BC. The match starts at 11.00 am and refreshments will be available. We hope you will again come along to support our boys.
