Winning Team Captain Malcolm Baird with the Peter Ungless Shield
Ember’s have re-gained the Peter Ungless Shield, the knock-out competition run by the Racal-Decca League. The match against Ewell Village BC was played at Oxshott with Ember’s two rinks securing an aggregate 15 shot margin of Victory.
Team captain Malcolm Baird paid tribute to their opponents and thanked Oxshott for hosting the event. Thanks also to those club members who came along to support.
In reaching the final Ember overcame strong competition from Cheam, Carshalton and Imber Court. Well done to all those who played in the final and in the earlier rounds.
Ember’s Winning Team. Jackie Cornwell, Malcolm Baird, Sylvia Jones, Mike Cutts, Dave Bardsley, Val Chicken, Dick Jones & Linda Pillman
Ember’s ‘Awesome Foursome’ – Jackie Cornwell, lead, Lorna Kilpatrick, 2, Linda Pillman at 3, as Sub for Mary Green, and Sylvia Jones as skip, became Surrey County Champions by winning the Surrey County Ladies Senior 4s. Having beaten last year’s county champions in an earlier round they followed it with a spectacular win over Sutton in the semi-final by 6 shots. Sutton had a strong team with their skip, Margaret Smith, an England player, who has won county and national titles, both individually and with her lead. In the Final Ember were up against a strong Milford team whose members also have multiple county championships under their belts. The Ember ladies won a tight, low scoring game by three shots and as a result will represent Surrey at the National Championships in Leamington, the first-round game being against Dorset at 9.30am on Wednesday 21st August. Sylvia and her team are justifiably proud of their achievements.
Yes. It’s time to grab yourself a pot. See these pages for this year’s competition draws. Ladies Competitions, Men’s Competitions and Mixed Competitions. Good luck to all players. Draws for the 2-woods and Non-Winners championships will follow later. You heard it here first but hard copies of the draws will be posted in the Clubhouse at the weekend.
