Jamboree Report

South Tyne League Jamboree

“Thanks to Steve Larkin for  this report” – Tim

This event was held at Haydon Bridge on Tuesday May 27th 2014. Seven teams took part, including for the first time a team, or more precisely three-quarters of a team, from Penrith. The Friars and Carlisle Castles sides were also short of players and were supplemented by players from Tynedale and Haydon Bridge. So the composition of the various teams was as follows:

A. Austins: G. Glover; C. Millar; B. Hardwick; D. Millar.

B. Monarchs: P. Crichton; A. Ashworth; S. Larkin; D. Foster jr.

C. Friars/Tynedale: J. Maxwell; J. Handley; S. Cassidy; B. Reed.

D. Angels: D. Wrigley; T. Wrigley; P. Taylor; P. Booker.

E. Penrith: S. Murdoch; A. Ridley; J. Thwaites.

F. Haydon Bridge: I. Mckay; D.Foster sr; C. Moorcroft; B. Blake.

G. Carlisle Castles/Haydon Bridge: J. Kelly; P. Rivers; D. Jackson; D. Rudge.

E. Penrith                                       3

F. Haydon Bridge                           4

G. Carlisle Castles/Haydon Bridge 4.5


So the Arthur Fulton memorial trophy was, for the first time in the history of the event, shared by four teams. Perhaps for the future we should devise a way of producing a more clear-cut result?


Bill Hardwick presented the league trophy to the new champions, Friars. And board prizes went to George Glover (board 1), Dave Foster sr (board 2), Bruce Wallace (board 3) and Drew Millar (board 4).


Thanks are due to David Tulip for organising the venue and the ample refreshments. As ever, the atmosphere was highly congenial and the results (almost) incidental.
