Bedford & County’s annual triangular match in October half term sees the senior men, the ladies and the juniors take part for three trophies – Seniors v ladies, Seniors v Juniors and Ladies v Juniors.

After losing to both the seniors and the juniors last year the ladies were very hopeful that they could turn the tables but despite an excellent score by the top lady, Ann Morris, of 40 points, the seniors, lead by Captain Hank Maloney achieved 357 points to the ladies 334 points.

Hank was also the top scorer for the seniors with 37 points. The winning individual score of 42 points was made by one of the Juniors - 13-year-old Matt Arden, and they amassed 351 points, also beating the ladies.

However, their 351 points would see them 6 short of the 357 scored by the senior men – who would win two trophies.
