Another successful result for the Mairangi Bay Juniors in Sundays Latimer Cup held at Browns Bay.  

We had three teams competing in the 1-5 Junior fours.

There was light rain falling during the morning and a really heavy shower in the afternoon that stopped the proceedings for 25 minutes.  

The winners of the tournament were the Manly team skipped by Kevin Rainsford, they were the only four winner on the day.

Second was the Mairangi team of Alan Daniels, Allan Blackman, Alantony (Tony) James and Allan Langley. They had 3 wins and 26 ends on the day, they lost their last game to the strong composite team of Paris, Carolyn and Laura from Glenfield and Sean Muholland from Browns Bay. This was an enthralling game with some great bowls from all players. The composite team also had three wins on the day.  

Third was another Mairangi Bay team – Neil Buckner, David Payne, Theresa Rogers and Ron Horne, they also had 3 wins and had 24 ends. They lost to the winning Manly team, which ended up being the deciding game on whom would win the Cup with four wins.  

We had one other team competing, Garth Partridge, Russell Parkinson, John McConnachie and Margaret O`Carroll. They had one win on the day but there was certainly a good improvement from the Sorrill Cup which is very encouraging.  

The last event for the North Harbour Junior season will be the Stanaway Cup up at Manly on Sunday 12th August. We have three teams entered and another two that will make up a composite team.  

There is also a Junior 1-5 Tournament being held at Glen Eden on Sunday 5th August. This is an any combination Triples. $45 per team, Lunch provided. 9.30am start. Email  or 02171018  
I believe we could have two maybe three teams playing in this tournament.
