Anxious waits for Alcester's bowlers

AS the season approaches its end for Alcester BC, issues of promotion or relegation remain to be resolved in three of the leagues where matches are outstanding.

The A team have completed their fixtures in Division Two of the South & West Birmingham Over-60s League and are currently in top spot.

They must wait until the final round of matches are completed for the very tight situation to be resolved, however.

The B team in Division Four are also in a battle but in their case it is to avoid relegation.

Even though they had a 22-shot victory at West Midlands Transport this week, they remain in the third relegation place in another tight situation.

Mike Ryland-Jones (21-7) was outstanding for Alcester with David Tilley (21-13), Renny Bannister (21-15), Rob Evans and Ray Richards (both 21-20) adding what may very well be vital points.

In Division One of the Heart of England’s over-60s section, the A team visited Baldwin.

John Alderson was Alcester’s only winner at 21-16 but close three close-fought games kept the overall deficit to 21 shots.

The team remain just above the relegation fight in yet another close situation.

Elsewhere, the B team were already relegated from Division Four before a 56-shot thrashing at home to Central Edgbaston in which all six players suffered defeat.
