Ifton Miners - Winter League Champions 2023/24

Congratulations to Ifton Miners for winning the Bradley Winter League for the second time, 6 years after they last took the title in 2018, albeit with a much changed side since then. They lost only one match, to closest rivals Flying Pierres who led the table for a large part of the season but finished runners-up after a decisive victory by Ifton in their second clash with Pierres. Gladstone had to settle for third again while Gwersyllt took fourth spot and Coed Talon were fifth. Pentre Broughton were next and then only 5 points separated 3 teams from 7th-9th showing how close things were in this part of the table. Finally, a special mention for The Warriors who stepped in at the last minute after Esclusham dropped out, using a number of players from different teams, so we could keep the 12-team format and therefore a game each week for all of us.

Congratulations go to Ifton's Joey Williams for topping the singles averages for the second year running, winning 19 out of 22 games, and also to Roger Wilson & Mark Billington of Flying Pierres who topped the pairs averages, winning 18 out of the 19 games they played together.

Ray gave a number of thank-you's at the presentation evening but just to say again that we appreciate everyone who comes along to play, plus the captains for looking after their teams and for giving us very few fixture headaches this year. A big thank you to all those who've worked in the kitchen and to Ian in the bar, to various Bradley club members who help keep the green, and therefore the league, running and to everyone else who's supported in any way.

Pictured are champions Ifton Miners and their captain Simon Tyler being presented with the trophy by local councillor Sarah Squires. Sarah is also on the Wauns Carnival committee who kindly sponsored the singles and pairs averages prizes. Joey Williams and most of the team captains can be seen receiving their prizes.

Enjoy your summer bowls everyone and we hope to see you back again next winter.
Best wishes,
Kevin & Ray

League table displaying incorrectly


UPDATE: the problem appears to have been resolved.


I'm aware that something is wrong with the way the league table is set up on the website at the moment. I don't know what's caused this and I've contacted Mike Beckett who runs the website so he can investigate. I've asked team captains to enter results as normal and I'll update this page with any further information in due course.

The Warriors replace Esclusham

A new team called The Warriors has replaced Esclusham in the winter league. Esclusham's existing points have been awarded to the Warriors and the results of the 3 matches they took part in will stand. This means the points gained by the 3 teams who played Esclusham will also stand.

It was quite a blow for Esclusham to pull out when the season was already well underway and we've done our best to try and salvage the situation. We had to consider all the difficulties involved in rearranging a number of matches along with their associated extra costs.

Thank you to everyone who's helped find players for The Warriors. At least we should all now have a match each week for the rest of the season and, just as important, people who want to play are getting a game.

The website has been updated to reflect this and the 2 outstanding fixtures that The Warriors have against Ifton Miners & Flying Pierres will be rearranged in due course.
