SKITTLES CARDIFF SKITTLES CARDIFF  
THE NON PROFIT MAKING CHARITY LEAGUE OF SKITTLES  

 
Every skittles season since its' formation the league introduced The Charity Shield the brainchild of  Alan Greaves of The Black & Ambers and Ray Bridges of The MagTwelve. The idea of the league winners taking on the cup winners as a pre season opener for the following season with the winners of that game choosing a charity of their choice to receive £300 - 00 plus from the leagues charity fund voluntarily donated by member clubs. There is a cheque for £350 - 00 waiting for the next winners of the Charity  
Shield, which is a Miners Lamp donated by Alan Greaves to be retained until the end of the following season as there being no prize money in this charity game. Velindre Cancer Centre, Ty Hafan and The  British Heart Foundation have all benefitted from donations in past seasons. The charity is something the league is proud of and will not lose sight of the fact that charities are always looking for donations  and will continue to get Skittles Cardiff support.  


The Mag Twelve kept up their title challenge with a big win at home against The Robbers, Russell Harp led the way for them with an excellent 35 supported by 28 apiece from Ray Bridges, Brian Mitchell and Terry Portlock again while Lloyd Richie hit a consolation 28 for The Robbers. Heath Hornets maintained their position at the top of the league with a narrow 5 pin win against Dublin All Stars. Peter Strange 29 and Ed Whittle 28 saw them home. The  Modernaires just pipped The Oddballs by 6 pins in a low scoring game at The Maltsters.  
The E.C. Allstars took on The Aces at home and it turned out to be a disasterous finish for  The Aces with only 6 pins required from the last three men but unbelievably only hit 5 to draw the game. Steve Burns hit 29 for E.C. with Johny Brinning 29 and Dave Gibbon 28 not quite enough to steer The Aces home as their team were left shell shocked to say the least  but as we all know that is skittles for you sadly but elation for the opposition. Pineapple  
Doughnuts recovered from 5 down on the first roll to hammer Maltsters Wanderers with  John Hopkins 31, Steve Jones 30 and 28 from Bob Ford paving the way with Malcolm  Mitchell 30, Walter Williams and Rod Moulder both hitting 28 for the losers. The Woodies  had an excellent win against high flying Plough Cubs but sorry no info on scores received.  The Black & Ambers remain joint top after beating The Five Nines away from home. Ken  
Lewis 31 and 28 from Graham Paton set them on the way while Alan Barratt 28 top scoring for the losers. The Rascals returned to winning ways and stay joint top after beating The Likely Lads thanks to 31 from Simon Walters and 28 from Aaron Denning Snr while Neil Renshaw 30 and Peter Delve 27 replied. The Bloodhounds showed no sympathy for The North Boys beating them away thanks to veteran John Evans 28, Richie Gentle, Chris Gentle and Henry Dyer all hitting 27 apiece for them
