PHIL'S COMMENTS
Week 21 April 7TH With the league now settled its time for the handicap cup, for the un-initiated the handicap is calculated by taking each teams average scores after 15 games (this year) and the difference between the top scorers and the other teams average is the handicap. The handicap calculation means all teams has in theory an equal chance in the cup. This week saw the preliminary rounds take place, top game was the match at Heap Bridge where the Rose and Crown Ramsbottom were the opponents this game saw the visitors start with just a point advantage but they didínt appear to require the handicap as they took charge of the match and Peter Taylorís Rose team took the match with a 50-58 score. The second match saw Swan and Railway Radcliffe Bís host league runners up Rose and Crown Starling. With an Eleven point handicap advantage the home side were always going to be favourites but after the first round the choice of questions seemed to conspire against the visitors, the home side scored a full house and bonus as the lead had stretched to 16points with a score of 4-20 . The first individual round had the Rose take a full house and bonus to close the gap to nine points. Both teams took a full house in round three and then came the stick or twist round which had a theme of Coronation Street and with the Roseís experts absent they didínt get passed the first stinker of a question and the home team took advantage to score a couple of points to give a half time score of 21-32. The second half started disasterously for the visitors and again the home side stretched the lead to fifeteen points this meant in the four or two round the Rose had to take risks. With the home side of John Hill, Harry Wilkinson, Enid Cathcart and Gordon Hubbart playing excellently on the night they scored heavily in this round to increase the lead to twenty points. The Rose hit back in the individuals to score a full house and two bonus points but this still gave the home side an unbeatable fourteen point advantage going into the last round and this increased by a point to give a final score of 46-61 (46-50). The Swan Bís progress through to play host to Rose Rammy well done both winners. Week 22 Monday April 14th The first round of the cup has thrown up a few good tussles with three matches in contention for top match and one that will be if they overcome a stiff handicap. The match between Swan BíS and the Rose Rammy looks to be a tough call on the prelim rounds results but on scores alone the Swanís could progress but Peter Taylorís Rose side are normally in top gear for the cup. The match at the Packhorse Affetside will be close but Sue and the Packlads have engineered a bandit handicap and the visiting Rose Bury will have to be on top form to overcome what is a crucial three points start. Either way result but the handicap may just swing it. The match at SunDial Walmersley Road has the Stopes Tavern visiting again looking at the handicap the SunDial if they play on top form will be a difficult team to overhaul but Paul Gardeners Taverners are hitting there best form at the moment and could just but only just take this. Again very close maybe a tie break question here. Final game of this round has Swan Aís hosting champions Radcliffe Cricket Club with a handicap of 19 to overcome the champions may haul back the majority but if the Swans play to recent scoring they will hold out. But it could be the most entertaining game to watch. With the semifinal draw made there are no outstanding favourites for the cup as all teams have handicaps that may favour them if they get through to the semiís but the Pack Horse may just be the bandits this year.
