The Southport Federation team completed their 2017 National League fixtures with the July match being against neighbouring Preston.
The home leg took place at Ainsdale Bowling Club and resulted in a 7-5 win. Among the winners for the home side were Mark Wilde and Fergal Wright, who won 21-10 and 21-19 respectively.
The away leg was held on the tricky Lostock Hall Conservative Club green and the Southport team were beaten 9-3. Alistair and Kez Adams, Chris Harding, Mike Milne and Jon Roberts from the Hesketh Arms were all selected to represent Southport at Lostock Hall.
The Southport team has enjoyed a much-improved season, winning all four home games and two overall aggregates. They now await the results of the last round of fixtures in August which will determine the final league placings.
Congratulations to Fergal Wright on winning the LV League’s Individual event, held at Fleetwood Hesketh on the 11th July. On a great night for Hesketh Eagles players, Fergal narrowly defeated Ray Atkinson in the final. Ray had previously overcome John Hughes at the semi-final stage. Nearly 100 players took part in this prestigious event and to have three of our members in the semi-finals was an impressive achievement.
The Hesketh Arms was again strongly represented at the finals night of the LV Pairs competition. Mark Wilde, partnering John Greenwood from Mere Brow, overcame Chris Harding and Mike Milne 21-14 in the final to claim the title. Well done to all the Hesketh Arms players who qualified for the last sixteen of this event.
Congratulations to our new Burscough League team, the Hesketh Vultures, on winning the 3rdDivision championship. Captained by Chris Harding, they have enjoyed an outstanding season, winning all 14 of their league games. This team has attracted several new members to the club and it has been good to see them taking part in the Club’s weekend competitions.
