The final round of Mens Senior County games take place on Sunday. Cheshire with 2 defeats in their previous games are out and take on Merseyside hoping to avoid the wooden spoon. Derbyshire and Greater Manchester are in the same group and a victory for either and the right result in the other game could see either county progress to the semi finals, although unbeaten Cumbria probably look slight favourites. The result of the Manchester v Cumbria match will hinge on how well the Cumbrian men take to one of Manchester's banker greens in James North's in Hyde. The weather may well play a big part and just take the fire out of the infamous Theatre Of Nightmares green.
Pick of the match ups in Cumbria looks to be at game number one where Cumbrian captain Baz Lowden takes on Andy Caairns.
Derbyshire meanwhile are up against already eliminated Staffordshire who take the opportunity to give a number of players their county debut. Derbyshire use one of their banker home greens at Stretton after a disappointing home performance in the defeat to Cumbria in the last round. An overral victory of 30 or 40 chalks and a Manchester win over Cumbria could see Derbyshire sneak through.
The Frank Beeley Trophy qualifiers kick off this Sunday at Houldsworth WMC
Its a 6pm start and the players on show will be :-
P.Cookson, G.Ellis, B.Gloag, J.Grace, J.Hargreaves, I.Hazlehurst, P.Heap, M.Hodson, D.Jackson, W.Jevons, D.McDermott, C.Mellor, G.Smedley, J.Taylor, A.Walker, S.Waring
A result that slipped through the net when I was on holiday was the popular Joe Broadhurst Clic Sargent Charity Pairs Event held on the 18th May which raised £803.50 which was donated to Clic Sargent, a children's cancer charity. Organiser Mark Sandham wanted to say a big thank you to all the players, spectators and companies who made a donation. Manchester United very kindly sent a hand signed football with a certificate off authenticity which Mark is selling on EBay. The auction ends on Sunday night so you still have chance to bid on it. The link is HERE or search for item number 131228872781.

The day went really well with some wonderful weather, some fantastic bowling and on a glorious bowling surface. First time entrants Andy Murray & Jack Holland proved too strong for father and son
