Bowls Erdington Court

Erdington Court men took on the combined might of the Birmingham Bowling Association (BBA) to win the coveted Tony Cooke Trophy.

 

Tony Cooke was a stalwart of Solihull Municipal Club - and the Trophy and a Rose Bowl were presented by his widow Joy to Solihull and then in 2016, with her approval, to be used by the BBA. The trophy match takes the form of an annual challenge between the previous year's winners of the BBA's 'A' Division and the rest of the BBA.

 

Those playing for the BBA against Erdington included top players from well-known local clubs such as Blossomfield, Handsworth Wood, Kings Heath, Rowheath, Sherwood Park, Solihull Municipal, Tamworth and West Midlands Police.

 

In a tight contest, the Court won 3 of the 5 rinks and an overall score of 135:109.

 

Club spokesman Ray Woods said,

"This has been a great season for Erdington Court in the BBA - and winning the Tony Cooke Trophy against the rest of the BBA really is the icing on the cake."
