A LITTLE BIT OF HISTORY WE WENT FRONT PIN FIRST ON THE 2nd DECEMBER 1994 WHEN THE PRESENT CUP WAS DONATED BY THE DAY FAMILY ON THAT OCCASION THE DISTRICT WON THE CUP BY A MARGIN OF 97 PINS IT WAS A ONE GAME THAT YEAR ALL OTHER TIMES IT HAS BEEN OVER TWO LEGS AND THIS WIN IS THE BIGGEST ANY TEAM HAS GONE INTO THE SECOND MATCH.
The first game with the Central League took place at the 49 club it resulted in a win for the District team by 100 pins this game was front pin first but it is only half time. The Central got off to a good start winning the set by 11 pins with James Lane hitting 50, for the District Phil Hucker got 46 after starting with a 1 so a good recovery, into the second set and I would think the Central would like to forget this set as the District pulled 63 pins so now they were 52 pins ahead in the game it all started with Martin Taylor hitting a 17 spare on his first hand only to hit another 17 on the fifth hand and to finish with a excellent 65, and with Julian Mason hitting a 14 spare on the last hand this put the set to bed. the Central did a little better in the third but still found the District to hot to handle with Pete Blackwell starting with a 14 spare and went on to hit a good 55 also Andy Collard hitting a 11 on this hand, not to out done Paul Steer hit a 16 spare on the fifth hand and with a set total of 151 the District pulled another 37 pins. into the last set Captain Phil Dean hit a 13 spare on second hand and a further 13 spare on his fifth hand to finish with a very good 60, for the Central Dean Hazell hit a 16 spare on his third hand this was only the second spare the Central hit in the game, but as I said it is only half time in the 2 games that we play well done to the District side as always it is a team game. Weston Central League 443, Weston & District League 543.

The second set was a reverse of the first with the Wrington side starting with 2 spares on the second hand down Julian Mason hit a 13 spare to steady the ship but in the forth Kevin Buck hit a 15 spare but this was followed by Martin Taylor getting a 16 spare, but then Wrington came back at us with 2 more spares to finish the set and they pulled back 21 pins this left the District only 2 pins in the game, into the last set of 3 it was nip and tuck until the third hand when Jerry Brooks hit a 15 spare then followed it with a 14 spare on his next hand and the other players hitting eights and nines we pulled away from the Wrington side winning the set by 23 pins. so well done to all the players as this was a team game.
