Please note that the green will be closed from Monday 2nd October in order that the essential end-of-season maintenance work can be carried out.
MIDWEEK ROUND ROBINS
The Officers and Committee of the Club would like to thank Peter and Lynne Smith for all the work they have undertaken this season in running the Tuesday and Friday Round Robins.
Peter and Lynne have asked that a special mention must also go to those members who have provided help at the round robins with tasks such as putting out chairs, making tea and washing up. This is greatly appreciated.
As well as providing our members with regular social bowling, the round robins bring in additional revenue for the Club, with over £400 having been raised so far this season. We would also like to thank those players who have donated their winnings from the round robins which has helped to boost this total.

The Southport team competed in the Federation Knockout Cup for the first time, which was held at various greens in the Huddersfield area at the beginning of September.
The first round saw the team overcome Cheshire Parks on aggregate, with Mike Milne and Fergal Wright both winning their games. This took the team into the quarter-finals, where they faced tough opposition in the form of 1st Division Champions Barnsley. Despite some good performances, Barnsley won this game 7-1 and they went on to finish runners-up to hosts Colne Valley in the final.
CHURCHTOWN CONSERVATIVE CLUB
