Huby Triples League 2019

Malton have won the Huby & District Triples League in their inaugural year. In a very close contest Malton gained a total of 120 points, just 5 points clear of Easingwold in 2nd place and 10 points ahead of Terrington in 3rd. As mentioned it was our first year in this league and to win it at the first attempt is something to be very proud of. Malton would like to thank all the other teams in this league for making us feel so welcome. A big thank you too to the league organisers for running such a warm and friendly competition.
BataGas League 2019

Malton have once again won the Batagas league. The club finished strongly over the last few weeks of the season and amassed a total of 140 points, ending up 32 points clear at the top with Wigginton BC coming in second place on 108 points and Swinton BC, after a good run of results, finishing in third place on 99 points.

Thank you to all teams for taking part in the league and many thanks also to the league's organising committee. We would also like to thank league chairman Fred Husband for his many years of service. Fred is standing down as chairman this year and his position will be a difficult seat to fill.
Fred Husband Trophy 2019

As another successful season comes to an end Malton have once again won the Fred Husband Knockout Trophy. In a hard fought match against Terrington BC held at Swinton Malton won by 78 points to 55 points. The early stages of the match were tight with Terrington taking the lead but as the match progressed Malton managed to make inroads on their lead and eventually drew level and then taking an un-assailable lead. This is the second year in succession that Malton have won this trophy.
Many thanks to Terrington for providing tough opposition and thank you to Swinton BC for hosting the final.
Eric Wood Memorial Trophy 2019

The Eric Wood memorial Trophy was held on Saturday 10th August. This annual open competition was once again sponsored by JB Motors of Malton and our thanks go to Stuart Carruthers for the companies continued support.

This years competition was won (for the 4th year in succession) by the Malton trio of John Harper, Derek Harper & David Raw. Runners-up were Ian Strangeway, Dave England & Graham Forster, also from Malton. 3rd place went to a team from Huby. Although the weather was not at its best it did not dampen anyone's spirits or prevent many teams playing some high quality bowls. Thanks to all those who competed and of course many, many thanks to the organising committee and our team of regular helpers who contribute their time and effort every year. Without them the event would not be the huge success it has become.
In early 2018 the club was presented with a large collection of archive material with documents dating back to the 1850's. The collection included reports of AGM's, match reports, articles in the local paper of the time and many photos of club games, presentations and annual end of season dinners.

Malton Bowls Club would like to thank Anne Elliott for donating the records compiled by her late father Frank Crozier. Frank was a stalwart member and one time chairman of the club and without his endeavour much of the clubs history would have been lost to the sands of time.

The venue was Pickering BC and, after a very good start for Malton, their opponents slowly began to reduce their overall deficit and by the time the match was finished Kirkbymoorside had won the match by a total of 55 points to 48 points.
