Seaton Valley Challenge Trophy 2021

Seaton Sluice Bowling Club hosted the annual Seaton Valley Challenge Trophy bowls match on Sunday 6 September at the Seaton Sluice Bowling Green in the Memorial Park on Beresford Road.

The annual event sees the bowling clubs of Seaton Delaval and Seaton Sluice go up against each other in the Seaton Valley Challenge Trophy match that is sponsored by Seaton Valley Council.

It was beautiful weather for the match and both teams fielded strong sides made up of members of the Ladies and Men’s teams from both of the bowling clubs.

This was the third Challenge Trophy match between the two clubs. The match was fiercely fought with Seaton Sluice coming out as the winners taking them to a two to one lead in the series of games.
