 4 Surrey County titles for Wey Valley

Wey Valley claimed 4 of the 6 finals contested at Surrey finals weekend.

Saturday saw disappointment as spirited efforts from Helen Newell in the U50 singles and and Jamie Tindall and Andrew Richardson in the pairs saw them gallantly lose their finals.

Sunday we faired better and in the morning session, saw Jamie Tindall re-claim the U25 singles titles, depsite being behind towards the end of both sets he managed to run out the winner 10-9, 10-9.

The fours was an all Wey Valley affair that did not go the distance as Duncan Heard, Ian Meyer, Jon Wilson and Paul Coleman were on top form and ran out comfortable winners to claim the title vs James Bruder, Andy Richardson, Charles Burder and Dan Morris.

The afternoon session saw redemption for 3 of the defeated four as they powered to the triples title 27-6. A reverse of 12 months ago when they won the fours, but lost the triples.

In the singles, huge favourite Jon Wilson took up the mantle with aplomb and eased to a 21-7 win to win the singles title once again.

A fantastic effort from all our county finalists.

Many congratulations to Sam and Jamie Tindall on their fantastic efforts at the national U18 finals on March 18th.
Both players did the club proud with excellent performances.
While Sam just missed out on making it through the group stages older brother Jamie made it through to the semi finals, just missing out on a place in the final.
A brilliant achievement by these two up and coming bowlers who along with brother Joe continue to improve and impress.

Title defence shattered by Barking

The men’s squad lost the London & Southern Counties shield final to Barking IBC.

A determined and hungry Barking team were in front from the first to the last end and outplayed us throughout. Our boys fought bravely and threatened a come back but in the end Barking proved too strong and ran out comfortable winners.

3 of our 4 rinks kept it close for most of the game, but one rink struggled and were on the back foot for most of the match.

A disappointing end but we have to give credit the the Barking team who played well and deserved their victory.

Many thanks to those who came to support us and to our reserves for attending.

Magic Mags and Mo through again

Wey Valley super duo Margaret Craig and Maureen Hill are through to the national O60 Pairs finals at Nottingham IBC on April 11 and 12.

They won their final qualifying match 17-14 to reach the last 16 and now have a chance to add to the National Two Wood Triples title they won last year with Barbara Crooke.

The ladies have been regular visitors to national finals in recent years and we wish them well.

Wey Valley challenge for county glory

Wey Valley players will contest 5 Surrey County finals over the weekend of March 24th and 25th.

U25 star Jon Wilson will contest the singles and then will team up with Duncan Heard, Ian Meyer and Paul Coleman to challenge teammates James Bruder, Andrew Richardson, Charles Bruder and Dan Morris in the fours.

The Bruder brothers and Dan Morris will hope to go one better this year and win the triples, the face players from Camberley.

Under 18 International Jamie Tindall will partner fours champion Andrew Richardson in the pairs against a strong Croydon team. Jamie will also complete in the U25 final for the 3rd year running.

With the fours title assured to return to Wey Valley, it is hoped that a clean sweep can be achieved.

Former Champion is back for another title challenge

2006 National Singles Champion Paul Coleman has qualified for the national finals at Melton Mowbray later this month.

He reached the final with a impressive win over former outdoor champion Tom Bishop (Cyphers IBC) – from 3-1 down in the early stages, Paul dominated the game and completed a 21-6 victory.

Holders make the final again

The Wey Valley quartet of James Bruder, Andrew Richardson, Charles Bruder and Dan Morris are through to the Surrey Fours final for the second year running.

Awaiting them in the final are club mates Duncan Heard, Ian Meyer, Jon Wilson and Paul Coleman who reached the final with a comprehensive win over another team from Croydon.

The mouthwatering derby clash should provide a high standard final.

Wey Valley Squad reaches the final

The team put in a great semi final performance to beat Egerton Park IBC to reach the final of the London & Southern Counties Shield Final for the second year running.

We now have a chance to successfully defend our title with a tough match against Barking IBC from Essex, a rematch after we narrowly defeated them in the Denny Cup.

Wey Valley star Ross Marshall impressed at the national U25 finals reaching the semi finals, narrowly losing on a tie-break.

Convincing win sees holder march on.

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.
