Bowls presentation night in Scunthorpe offers chance to refect on excellent year
May was the month that started the new outdoor season and the first club to attain a clean sweep win of 12 to 0 points was Epworth playing an away match on May 8.
Division One reigning Champions Perrys Sports got their 2012 campaign off to a steady start securing an 8 to 4 points victory on visiting near neighbours Scotter. By the end of May Scotter had taken an early lead in Division One, newly promoted Co-op were leading Division Two, while Division Three saw Spadebashers at the top.
The new artificial green at Kirton in Lindsey after a delay caused by the difficult weather conditions finally had its playing surface completed in May, providing the club with a new exciting future.
June brought a sustained four weeks of inclement weather in which a series of 18 games over a period of two weeks were cancelled and rearranged bringing a difficult time to many clubs.
By the end of the month Brigg were heading Division One with reigning champions Perrys creeping up into third place. In Division Two Rose Leisure B had shot into the lead just one point ahead of Messingham while in Division Three Messingham B were heading the table.
July saw more wet weather interrupt the league programme putting additional pressure on clubs to rearrange matches towards the end of the season that was starting to get congested with rearranged fixtures. Division One was starting to show the chase for the title with Cemex taking over at the top of the table with reigning champs Perrys sliding into second place. Rose Leisure B were showing their intentions retaining the top spot in Division Two while in Division Three Messingham B were still in the lead in an extremely close battle.
August produced a month of frantic action with the backlog of rearranged matches being condensed into the last few weeks of the season. Towards the end of the month the reigning champions Perrys Sports had eventually eased their way into the top slot of Division One with Cemex in second place having had some indifferent results. Division Two saw Burton Stather reclaim the lead with Rose Leisure in second place while in Division Three Barnetby had sneaked into first place over second place North Kelsey.
September saw the end of the 2012 outdoor season with all clubs completing all their fixtures under the difficulties of the poor summer weather with one club playing its last match as late as September 11. Perrys Sports once again retained their Division One title, Rose Leisure B took the Division Two title by one point and Barnetby secured the Division Three title.
The Division Four championship was won by Barnetby B, Appleby Frodingham B were victorious in Division Five while Perrys Sports retained the Ladies Division title again.
After completion of all matches in the Scunthorpe Triples League the Champions of the divisions were confirmed. The Cemex club has secured the Division One title dropping just 32 points all season with Brigg in second place 35 points behind them.
The final event of the outdoor season is the League's 'Presentation & Dance Night'.
It will be held on Friday, October 12 at Cemetery Road Club and winners will receive their hard-earned trophies.
