Great news for the 2019 season! Malton are to participate in the Huby Triples in 2019.

The matches for this league will be played on Tuesday evening with the one or two games held on Thursdays. The format is exactly the same as the BataGas triples league with four rinks of 3 players per team over 18 ends duration. We look forward to taking part and welcome the opportunity to visit and play at venues we normally wouldn't.
Malton Win BataGas Triples League
After a long and hard fought battle Malton have once again won the BataGas triples league. This is the 6th year in a row that Malton have been successful in the league. Congratulations to all those players who took part this year and to all the support team (the green keeping staff, team captain & vice captain etc). Many thanks also to all the other teams in this league for attending the 'Winners v Rest of the League' fixture held before the trophy presentation on Friday 31st August. In addition Malton would like to thank the league organizers and sponsors without whom the league would not be possible. Now of course the season is over and winter approaches but we look forward to once again stepping onto the green in mid-April next year and enjoying ourselves in the company of other bowlers.

46-45 point victory over Helmsley. The match was held at Swinton on Monday 30th July. Malton would like to thank Swinton Bowls Club for hosting the final and our thanks also go to Helmsley for pushing Malton all the way, making it such a thrilling contest.
Eric Wood Memorial Trophy 2018
JB Motors of Malton will once again be sponsoring the Eric Wood Memorial Trophy.
This prestigious competition attracts bowlers from many of the local clubs and is a very enjoyable day with cash prizes and a trophy for the winners and runners-up .
It is a good chance for the club to raise funds and our members are encouraged to support this event by donating raffle prizes as well as food and refreshments for the day.
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.
