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.

This years event was held on Sat 6th Aug in perfect weather. A new name goes on the trophy this year with Wayne Bailey, Andy Bailey and Graham Wattam winning for the first time. Congratulations to the team from Holgate BC. In joint second was Neil Flynn and his team from Sowerby Flatts and Alec Young and his team from Kirkbymoorside. The margin between all top three teams was very close but Wayne and his team were deserved winners. A great event was enjoyed by all who took part and we look forward to next years competition with anticipation. Hopefully the sun will once again shine down us.

Malton v R.O.L. 2022 (Huby Triples)
To celebrate Malton winning this years Huby Triples League the traditional match against the rest of the league was held at Malton on Thurs 25th August. In perfect bowling conditions the match was played over 12 ends & 6 rinks with every league team represented.
Although nothing but pride was a stake the match was still a very competitive affair with Malton winning by just one shot (55-54).
Many thanks to those who took part and also the league organisers. Without their background work and dedication to the cause the league would not exist.

Malton v R.O.L.  2022 (BataGas Triples)
Malton BC have once again won the BataGas Triples League and on Fri 2nd September hosted the traditional 'Winners v Rest of League' match. With an early start to the game it was possible to complete 16 ends before the gloom of Autumn made it difficult to see the head from the mat.
Reflecting the tight end to the season the match was a close affair with Malton winning 83-75 over the 6 rink aggregate.
The match was followed by the presentation ceremony with Kevin Hebblewhite from BATA handing the trophy to Ian Strangeway (team captain). This was followed by a small buffet and refreshments. Thank you to all who attended the event and those who volunteered their time and effort preparing food and selling raffle tickets..
We hope those who came enjoyed the evening and we thank you all for attending. We now look forward to 2023 when we can meet all our friends again and begin our defence of the league title once more.

Malton BC have managed to achieve an amazing treble by adding the Ryedale & District Veterans League (Div 1) title to the BataGas Triples and the Huby & District Triples wins making 2022 our most successful season ever. The vet's secured the title with an emphatic 10-0 win at Strensall. Kirkbymoorside were runner's up with Easingwold enjoying a good finish to the season climbing up to 3rd place.
The trophy was presented by league chairman Tony Baker to Malton team captain Dave England on Thursday 8th September prior to the final of the Ossie Ashcroft Cup.

Cup
That brings to an end the most memorable of seasons for our club. A season where every member can look back and feel proud of what we have achieved. Thank you to every other league team and their organisers for their tireless work throughout 2022. After the turmoil of the last 2 years it was a pleasure to meet you all once again, send a few woods down and enjoy some good company.

Cup
The league was a very tight competition this year with just 3 point separating the top 3 teams.
Malton would like to thank all the teams who have made us feel welcome since we joined the league in 2019 and we look forward to returning to meet you all again in 2023.
