Sandy Conservatives BC achieved the double by winning Bedfordshire’s two inter club knockout Competitions, the Pell Shield (Four Pairs) and the Harmsworth Cup (Four Rinks) at Kempston Hammers, yesterday (9th September).
Bedfordshire’s President, Gordon Newman ( he is also President of Sandy Con), was a very proud man as he presented the trophies in a very unbiased manner to Sandy Con’s Captain, Wayne Humberstone. This is the fourth occasion in which the Con have won the domestic double.
Many thanks must go to the members of Kempston Hammers who went out of their way to make the day a special event.
Sandy’s season could get even better as they have reached the top eight teams in the Country in the National Top Club Competition which will be played to a conclusion at Leamington Spa on the 14-15th of September. All the best lads.
