Congratulations to Banbury Central on their National Competition success, winning the Tony Allcock Trophy for the second time, following on from their victory in 2018.

Their quarter final against the Alton Social BC, Hampshire, saw them take a comfortable win 28 shots to 12 with Eloise Jones, Pam Shepherd, Graham Morbey and Keith McNeil taking a 15-7 win and Alan Carter, Carole Galletly, Caroline Campion and Nigel Galletly having the same shot difference with their 13-5 scoreline.

Sunday mornings Semi final introduced them to the Essex double rink from Wanstead Central BC with Nigel's foursome having a match winning 11 shot 18-7 win to more than cover the 14-17 three shot deficit recorded by Keith's four.

The afternoon's final against the Bromley club from Kent produced an exciting game going down to the last end played, with Central hold shot and the game with the jack enticingly near the ditch. Four attempts by the Bromley back end trying to ditch the jack proved unsuccesful giving the Oxfordshire eight the closest of victories with a 28-27 scoreline. Keith McNeil's rink losing 10-15 and Nigel Galletly's four winning 18-12.
