Manfield Cup, Saturday 3 July

We woke up to a wet and miserable day but the sun came out in time to mow the green and get everything set up for the afternoon.

The four Daventry Town teams played at – Roade, Kettering Lodge, Geddington and Rushden, with a very narrow win by Steve, Steve, Dave and Doug.  Well done to all those who participated I am sure everyone enjoyed another opportunity to get out and about and see fellow bowlers again,

We hosted players from Kislingbury, Whyte Melville, Irchester, Kingsthorpe, Wellingborough, Oundle, Geddington and Chapel Forest who all seemed to enjoy a relaxed, but competitive afternoon of bowls.  The after match chats were mostly centred on the upcoming England football match and we have been told not to mention the raffle – which was exceptionally well supported.  Special thanks to all those volunteers who helped either before, during or after the match, it would not have been so successful without you.

The afternoon reflected what sport is all about and it was great to see so many smiling faces.  Thank you to all who took part in the day, either by playing or organising, we are already looking forward to next year’s matches.
