On Wednesday evening 28th August Tarvin A Bowling Team finished top of their division to gain promotion to Division 3 of the Norley and District Evening Bowling League!
The result went right down to the wire with Tarvin having to achieve a high points score in their final fixture of the season against Vale Royal at The Pochin's Club,Middlewich.
The evening started poorly for Tarvin on a very demanding green when 3 of the first five players were defeated, however, the team rallied before the final 2 players took to the green.
It was nerve racking stuff with both players having to come from behind before the required points total was achieved.
The final league position sees Tarvin with 3227 points just 9 chalks ahead of runners up Winnington A with 3218 points, and Tarporley in 3rd place on 3192 points
The squad players this season have been- Nige Dodd, Alan Bannister, Ryan Forster, Dave Worden, Dave Galley, Dave Ashton, Sam Fellows, Pete Sheen, Ray Smith, Iain Couturier, Ian Swaffield, Mat Worden, Barry Rowlands, and Pete Maiden
The squad celebrated their victory with other members of the club at The Red Lion, Tarvin after the match with free catering kindly supplied by the licencees Simon and Gill Brett
The result means that the Club will receive a much needed cheque from the league for £280.00.
