Bad weather green at Dalton
Updated: Sep 27, 2020
Continuing this week's theme of what the bad weather can do to your green I am grateful to David Catherine for this photograph of the Dalton green. This photo was taken on Easter Monday 2018 which was the opening day of the bowling season for the Veterans League. All 11 six-man team games were postponed.
The following day was the opening round of 10-man fixtures and 18 matches were called off with just 13 matches surviving and being completed. Among the matches to go ahead were two at Meltham, two in Almondbury and also at New Mill, Kirkheaton C&BC and Denby Dale with the rest being town centre sites. Super picture, thank you David.
