In this week’s Deltawaite Ltd Furness Senior Citizens’ League, the final of the George Barrow Memorial took place at West Shore.

It was contested by season-long league leaders Hawcoat Park and the side who occupied second place for the most part this season, Co-op. The game took place on an excellent surface at West Shore, only bettered by the weather on the day.

It proved to be Co-op’s turn to step out of the shadows, as they held an 18-chalk advantage after the first four games, in small way due to Martin Ryder's 21-8 win.

With the second four on the green, despite a sterling effort by Tonie Moxham winning 21-8, Hawcoat Park were unable cause a dent into the lead Co-op held, with the final outcome seeing Co-op win by 18 chalks,

The League thanked George Barrow (Jnr) for his continued support of the event and West Shore for their efforts in making a success of the day. Mr Barrow presented the trophy to Co-op’s captain Albert Head, along with prize money to both sides.

In Division One, King Alfred won five of the eight games in the all-Walney affair against West Shore, but were unable claim the aggregate as these went by way of the home side enabling them to square the match at 5-5.

Barrow Island gave a spirited performance away to Kirkby. Having shared the games four each they came up short in claiming the aggregate points as the villagers won 6-4.

None of the bottom four stole a march on their rivals as they lost to similar scores. Walney Park lost 7-3 at Askam whilst Co-op A could only pick up three at home to Lindal. Bottom club Barrow Island A lost 9-2 at home to Roose.

In Division Two, Glaxo having a game in hand over second-placed West Mount gave them a chance to close the 18-point gap at the top. They proved too strong for bottom side Salthouse A, as they whitewashed their opponents.

West Mount beat North Scale 8-2 at home while there were 10-0 wins for Hawcoat Park B and Walney Park A against Co-op B and Hawcoat Park C, respectively.

Third-bottom Walney Park B picked up their eighth win of the season and their third in a row in defeating Dalton CC A 9-2, as they finish with a flourish.
