El Cid Bowls Club wins its First Community Cup!
Last weekend El Cid Bowls Club entered a team into the Federation Community Cup held at Bonalba Bowls Club. The format was a 5 player, multi-discipline competition against many of the bowls clubs on the Costa Blanca. Our team comprised of Ian Brown, Hazel Brown, Debbie Connolly, Clive Scott and Paul Trunchion.
The first day (Saturday) saw our team win in all the disciplines against the Bonalba B Team which allowed our team to progress to the next day. On the Sunday, the team repeated their impressive performance beating Monte Mar Bowls Club, again in all disciplines. This propelled El Cid into the final of the competition which was against our good friends Javea Green Bowls Club on the Monday. As expected, it was a tough set of games, with the Triples winning their game, the Pairs losing theirs and the Rinks drawing their game. Fortunately, Ian Brown had beaten Javeas’ Derek Eldon by enough points (21-10) to win the competition overall, bringing the trophy to El Cid Bowls Club for the first time. Well done El Cid!
