ilmcote and Binton A finished the season with 22 points from 12 matches. Though Binton A shot 230 points the highest team score last week which gave them an overall team average of 225.33 it was not enough to wrestle the trophy from Wilmcote who finished with a team average of 225.75. Wilmcote won the L C Docker League Cup for the fifth consecutive year by just 0.42 points.
The season ended with 23 individuals scoring maximum points
Binton A 230 Binton B 210. Binton A conscious of the need for a high score, started well with Chris Reed getting the team off to a good start with 34. He was followed by Andy Smith who got the last possible of the season. They pressed on with only fours and bulls and a finish of 34 from Will Cemis to a win convincingly. Binton B who only had six shooters and needed an A N Other score, kept their shots close to the bull but the best they could do was Steve Hodges’ 32.
Wilmcote 226 MEB 208. Both teams fielded eight shooters but the relatively inexperienced MEB shooters had too many threes to worry Wilmcote. The best MEB could offer was 31 from Paul Onions and Rob Dipple. Wilmcote did much better and with only fours and bulls including a possible for Adam Clarke and 33s from Sammy Skye Unit, Lester Langford and Paul Clingan came out clear winners.
Avenue 198 Avon 215. Avenue who have had trouble finding a full team all season only had five shooters and with two A N Other scores struggled throughout the match. Only two shooters managed to avoid the threes Steve Everett 30 and Steve Garlick 31. Avon led the scoring from the start and with only fours and bulls secured a solid win to give them third place in the league. Nick Williams was their top shot with 33 and Steve Ray did well with 32.
