Super 14 Final 2023 - Machynlleth v Montgomery at Kerry

The conclusion of the 2023 final was a very close match. With the pairs and triples going in Machynlleth's favour it all came down to the Rinks and the very last measure. The overall shot aggregate was tied on 69 v69 but Machynlleth won by 3 winning rinks to 2. 

We would like to thank both teams for a great match, a thankyou to Kerry for hosting and to Will James for Umpiring.

February 2024

At the recently held AGM, no nominations were forthcoming for the positions of Junior Vice President and

Senior Vice President of the County Association. The Executive Committee have requested me to circulate

all clubs, with the hope that someone will come forward to fill these positions. It is imperative for the future of

this Association that these roles are filled.

 

The Executive also highlighted the shortage of umpires within the County, so it was decided to run an

introductory course within the County to encourage and assist those members willing to take up those

duties. Ideally every club in the County should have an umpire on call, so hopefully members will be

forthcoming. 

 

Please let your executive member know if you are interested.
