NNBC carry on where they left off

Following a very successful 2010 which brought championship trophies for the second year in succession, Nuthall Northern Bowls Club have started 2011 in a similar vein.

Based at Basil Russell Playing Fields, NNBC, captained by veteran Geoff Lillycrap have chalked up a series of thrilling wins, taking the scalps of local rivals Kimberley, Greasley, Rolls Royce Leisure and Hucknall Tichfield Park in quick succession.

But Nuthall’s run of successes came to a grinding halt in a recent encounter with TRW at Stapleford, who despite trailing for most of the match gained the upper hand on the last two ends to earn a narrow victory by just three shots.

Like many bowling clubs NNBC has a shoestring squad and they would welcome anyone who has any ability and who is committed to playing for a club whose teamspirit is second to none.

Their next fixture is this Saturday (June 4) at Basil Russell Playing Fields against Notts Constabulary BC.
