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 Cup Final this year is between current holders The Plough Cubs and Maltsters Wanderers to be
played at Llandaff North S.S.C. Friday May 5th 8-15 prompt start.

All Stars snatched defeat from the jaws of victory at home with two 0's on their last roll to lose by just 2 pins to The Pineapple Doughnuts who thought Santa had come early. Howard Walker 29 and Tom Evans 32 set them up with Nick Green 30 and Bryn Williams 29 taking advantage of the situation. The Likely Lads had an excellent win away to The Mag Twelve with last man the lovable Mike Cook hitting an 8 on his last roll ably assisted by Graham Brown 31 and a superb 33 from evergreen Peter Delve who gets better with age. The race for the title will go down to the final round of games next week with The Plough Cubs last years champions favourites to win the league after a big win against Dublin All Stars with Heath Hornets who picked up the points in a comprehensive victory over The Oddballs and along with The Rascals both are waiting for any slip up next week by The Cubs.

The Aces with Dave Brinning 29 and the veteran of the side Peter Young 31 accounted for The Bloodhounds who had their Aussie import star Megan Stewart top scoring for them with 31 including a 9 on the last roll. The Black & Ambers beat The North Boys sith Alan Meyer top scoring with a brilliant 36 without a 9 or a spare, Lyn Gould 32, plus Dave Harries and Andy Church both hitting 30 apiece for them while Aeron Sedgemore again top scoring for The North Boys with 29.
