Final League Table

With just 1 league game still to be played, the final positions are pretty much all settled.

Virtually final table is now available – just waiting on 1 more match to be played.  Hopefully we have the final table in time for our AGM at the Suffolk.

Salad Days

Last game of the season saw the Hustlers host 2nd-placed Celery Boys.  Could we go out with a bang?

After holding a lottery to select the playing order, the Hustlers lead off with a steady first leg, only to see the Celeries sneak it by a mere 4 pins.  With  Rob getting our first 40 of the night, 2nd leg put in another steady performance, but saw the lead stretch out by another 3 pins at the break.

Refreshed by the sasuages and chips, 3rd leg built on a slow start to hit the highest leg score of the night (Neil getting top score in the process) and win by 22, handing over a 15-pin lead to the anchors.  Slowly the Celeries began to eat away at the gap, taking the lead with 2 hands to play.  With the crowds roaring, the anchors bravely rallied and, despite losing the leg by 8 pins, clinched a last-gasp victory to end the season in style.
