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.  


** MANY CONGRATULATIONS TO HEATH HORNETS ON WINNING THE LEAGUE TITLE **  

Secretary Mark Harrison and Gerald Morgan both hit 28 apiece for Heath Hornets to set up  
a great finish to the season in beating The Oddballs away. The Black & Ambers had to beat  
The Likely Lads for a play off but unfortunately they lost at home after a poor fourth roll.  
Billy Yaxley and Dave Harries both hit 28 for The B & A with Ben Winspear and Bernard  
Maskill both hitting 29 apiece for The Likely Lads. The Rascals picked up third spot after  
beating E.C. Allstars with both Gwyn Llewellyn and Ralph Welch both scoring 28 for them.  
The North Boys picked up the points against Dublin All Stars while next weeks Cup Finalists  
The Woodies scraped home by just 2 pins. The Bloodhounds had an excellent win against  
The Mag Twelve to pick up the points for their best season to date in the league. Maltsters  
Wanderers finished the season off in style in beating The Five Nines away with John  
Cummings spinning his way to an excellent 32 total backed up by yours truly with 30 and
