STBC Centenary Pairs Competition

STBC Centenary Pairs Competition

The day was a great success and was almost completed in glorious sunshine.  Unfortunately the rain didn’t hold off and the semi finals and final were played in the pouring rain.  However it didn’t spoil the day and there was some fantastic bowling on show.  From 32 pairs at the beginning of the day the final was played out between Siddal BC and Greenroyd BC.
