Northland bring home the Sinclair Cup

A team of 18 Northland indoor bowlers travelled to Auckland on Sunday, September 15 to contest the Sinclair Cup against teams from Thames Valley and six associations from within the Auckland region.

Northland came out on top winning all seven rounds closely followed by Western on six wins and Thames Valley on 4.5.


In the fours, a Whangārei combination of Ton Kaan, John Coleman, Inez Bunting and Allyson Hayward topped the 24 teams with the other two Northland combinations coming in at fourth and sixth.

In the pairs, Bob and Pauline McKinley from the Bay of Islands topped the 24 teams and the two others following on seventh and 13th.

A very successful end to what has been quite a tough season for the Northland team which included a match against the South Island.

Congratulations to Judy Bethel on her selection of a winning team.
