The trophy was presented by Vet's league vice chairman Freddie Alnutt to the winning captain Dave England.
Thank you to all concerned and to Kirkbymoorside Bowling Club for preparing such a wonderful bowling surface and for hosting the final.

BataGas Triples League 2023 Winners
Fri 25th August: Malton Have retained the BataGas Triples league title. With four games to play we were placed 4th in the league and some 18 points adrift but came through with three consecutive 8-0 wins and finishing with a 6-2 victory away at Wigginton.
This the 10th year running that Malton have won this competition and it has been by far the toughest with many teams in the league raising their game making it a very competitive league indeed.
Many thanks for the tireless efforts of the league organisers and to all the other teams who played. Although the desire to win is strong in all teams it is by far more important that the friendliness we have felt throughout the season prevails which makes the game the success that it has become.

Thank you to all who contributed to make the event such a success.

Ossie Ashcroft Final 2023
Although Malton were not competing in the final of the Ossie Ashcroft 2023 final it is tradition that the final is held at our club.
This year the final saw Kirkbymoorside play Easingwold.
With the 2 teams playing each other the previous day in the final match of the Vet's Div 1 season, which Easingwold won with the final bowl of the final end to finish just 2 points above them, Kirkbymoorside were out for revenge.
In very hot conditions on a fast green it was Kirkbymoorside who took an early advantage and at the halfway stage were some 20 points ahead, a lead which they managed to maintain and take this years title.
The photo below shows Kirkbymoorside after the presentation of the winners cup to victorious captain Betty Turnbull and her team.
