On a blistering hot afternoon the final of the Setford Trophy competition took place between Jackie Munt and Trevor Rush. It was a tribute to the late Terry Setford that the bowling was to such a high standard in very trying condition and very well supported by BBC members.

This competition, which is only open to newer bowlers, was inaugurated by Terry who introduced and coached the majority of beginners at the club over recent years. Pauline Setford presented the prize to the winner, Jackie Munt, and congratulated both bowlers on a terrific game which we were sure Terry was watching.

From a spectators point of view, a real ding dong affair. Jackie clawed back into the game as Trevor had raced into the lead, then it was gritty bowling from both opponents culminating in what was the final end when the score stood at 18-17 to Trevor. Jackie was left holding three with a last wood, (no pressure) a superb concentrated draw to make full house and the match. Thanks were given to John Hendrick for marking the match and to all the spectators who supported the finalist.
