August 2017: new Wey Valley website launched.
April 11th 2017 – Our super ladies become national champions!
Barbara Crooke, Margaret Craig and Maureen Hill win the Over 50 Two Wood triples title.
Having battled their way through qualifying to reach the last 16 stage, the Wey Valley ladies travelled to Nottingham with high hopes for success. Margaret and Maureen are no stranger to the national finals having won the Unbadged Pairs in 2005, they were also pairs semi-finalists in 2009.
A nail biting win over local rival bowlers from Sutton in the first game, was followed by a strong win over the defending champions from North Wilts. The semi-final saw them meet a very strong triple from Lincoln, a nip and tuck battle saw them fight to reach the final.
Facing a very experienced triple from Barwell IBC, a hard-fought final saw it reach a nail-biting conclusion. With nothing really separating the teams coming into the last few ends, the Wey Valley ladies held their nerve to produce crucial bowls when needed to seal the title.
March 26th 2017 – County Success for Wey Valley players.
James Bruder, Andrew Richardson, Charles Bruder and Dan Morris have won the fours title, beating Sutton in the final. The win rounded off a disappointing weekend for 3 of the team. James and Dan were beaten in the pairs final and they also missed out of the triples title with Charles.
The ladies county finals also had mixed fortunes with Margaret Craig and Maureen Hill losing the pairs final to Sutton, but winning the triples title with Barbara Crooke.
Up and coming star Jamie Tindall missed the chance to win back to back U25 titles losing to Andrew Orme from Donyings.
March 12th 2017 – A convincing win sees Wey Valley the London and Southern Counties Shield for the 3rd time.
The senior squad won this prestigious team event beating Egerton Park from Sussex 97-55. Winning on all 4 rinks the storming 36-11 win by the rink led by international Paul Coleman was the catalyst for a fantastic overall performance that saw the team pull away at half way and cruise to victory.
The squad was stretched to the full throughout the season with wins over Croydon, Hounslow, Watford, Victory and St Neots to reach the final. The win over Victory was a typical Wey Valley performance, fighting scrapping and never giving up, the match was notable as no less that 12 of the squad were unavailable. Additionally, in the final 7 of the clubs U25 players were unable to play as they were representing Surrey in another team event.
