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 re-arranged game saw Black & Ambers jump to the top of the league after beating Dublin All Stars on Monday night. Alan Meyer again kept up his run of good form with an excellent 34 backed up with 30 from Jason Richards and 28 from Billy Yaxley. Both Rick Rleet and veteran Roy Clarke hit 27 apiece for D.A.S. Heath Hornets beat The  
North Boys with Mike Carless hitting 29 for them on a cold alley with no heating. The Bloodhounds picked up the points against The Robbers thanks to 28 apiece from Dave Murphy and John Stewart but Paul Whitehouse of The Robbers top scored for them with 29. D.A.S. had an excellent away win against The Modernaires winning by just 3 pins thanks to Mr Evergreen Tony Edwards conjuring up a 33 with Eddie Jones having a rare 31 plus Rick Fleet 29 setting up the win with Eyfion Rees and Roy Mitchell both having 29 each to no avail for The Modernaires. Plough Cubs picked up the points in a low scoring affair on the splash alley at Whitchurch S.S.C. The Mag  
Twelve had a good home win against the high flying E.C. Allstars with no scores under 20 or over 28 in their 302 total. Mike Evans and son Jack both hit 30's in their total for E.C. The local derby game saw The Black & Ambers edging out The Pineapple Doughnuts by 4 pins. Lyn Gould 36, Alan Greaves 31 top scored for them with Rob Ings 31and Tony Huntley 30 replying. The Likely Lads with Keith Renshaw hitting 29 for them beat The Aces by 10 pins. The Woodies beat The Oddballs but it was the Graham Chad show with him hitting an impressive 36 including two 9's while Alan Pitman hit 31 in reply. The Rascals had a good win against The Five Nines with Rob Denning 32 and Ralph Welch top scoring for them with  Alan Barrett hitting a gallant 34 for the losers.
