Peter Bradbury Trophy

On Thursday 7th September the annual battle took place for the Peter Bradbury Trophy between Mid Wilts Triples league rivals Devizes “A” and Devizes “B” to honour the memory of Peter who was a founder member of this league format.
With the holiday period in full swing both sides had to bring in reserves as well as playing over five rinks instead of the normal format of four so that all members who had played in the league during the season were able to have a game in this important annual competition.

After the game socialising, a few drinks and a fish and chip supper finished the evening of well and the trophy was presented to the “A”, the winning team for 2017, by President Rosemary Bradbury.

For those interested in statistics the “A” team won on all but one rink though a second one was very close with only one shot difference whilst the overall score resulted in an 18 shot win for the “A” team.
