BOWLS: Toby’s trio star as the ‘A’ team end on a high, but it’s an unwanted 100 per-cent for the ‘B’ side

There were mixed emotions for the two Hunts Under 25 teams in the final round of Reg Wright Trophy fixtures.

The county ‘A’ team signed off on a high courtesy of an 81-58 success away to Suffolk ‘B’ last Sunday.

Toby Furzeland’s rink, featuring Dan Townsend and Sam Brugnoli, collected a terrific 37-15 triumph, while an all-Sawtry trio of Matt Nickerson, Brad Herbert and Sam Nickerson won 25-20 – a fine send-off for the latter in his final appearance due to turning 25 later this year.

But the Hunts ‘A’ side had to settle for third place in the county competition, amassing 10 fewer points than in 2016.

The Hunts ‘B’ outfit finished bottom after suffering defeats in all five fixtures. The last of those was an 87-59 reverse to unbeaten champions Suffolk A last Sunday.

A 29-15 success for the all-Buckden rink of Ben Reed/Eddie Patience and Mack May was the highlight.
