SKITTLES CARDIFF SKITTLES CARDIFF  
THE NON PROFIT MAKING CHARITY LEAGUE OF SKITTLES  

 
Every skittles season since its' formation the league introduced The Charity Shield the brainchild of  Alan Greaves of The Black & Ambers and Ray Bridges of The MagTwelve. The idea of the league winners taking on the cup winners as a pre season opener for the following season with the winners of that game choosing a charity of their choice to receive £300 - 00 plus from the leagues charity fund voluntarily donated by member clubs. There is a cheque for £350 - 00 waiting for the next winners of the Charity  
Shield, which is a Miners Lamp donated by Alan Greaves to be retained until the end of the following season as there being no prize money in this charity game. Velindre Cancer Centre, Ty Hafan and The  British Heart Foundation have all benefitted from donations in past seasons. The charity is something the league is proud of and will not lose sight of the fact that charities are always looking for donations  and will continue to get Skittles Cardiff support.  


 The Woodies had an excellent away win against high flying Plough Cubs despite playing a  
spare man 18. Andrew Morgan was their top scorer with 28 on The Cubs low scoring alley as they  
hit a 63 on the last roll to pick up the points. Keiron Deacy with 30 and Bobby Williams 31 helped  
The Modernaires to an away victory against The Oddballs. The Robbers winless run continues  
losing at home to The Mag Twelve in a low scoring game for The Maltsters alley. Maltsters Wanderers  
buried their away voodoo in beating The Doughnuts away. Evergreen Tony Reed had another good  
night with 31 backed up by Malcolm Mitchell 29 and 28 apiece from Steve Jones Jnr and John  
Cummings with ever reliable Tony Huntley replying with 31. Dublin All Stars just scraped home by a  
single pin as they beat Heath Hornets with Andy Lawrence having a 31 and both Eddie Jones and Justin Hewitt 28 each. Richie Coombs hit 30 for The Hornets who jusr fell short of their target with a 64 last roll. The Likely Lads had an excellent home victory against The Rascals with captain Mike Cook hitting a superb 35 supported with a 29 from Ryan Cook. Phil Welch 30 and both Nigel Willan & Alex Welch hit 29 apiece for The Rascals who had a last roll total of 72 just falling short of their 76 roll target.  
The Aces had a good win at home against E.C. Allstars thanks to 30 from Dave Mahoney and 29 each from Dave Brinning and Peter Young. Mike Evans hit 30 for the gallant losers.
