Lincolnshire Challenge Shield Report

The Lincs Challenge Shield event last night saw LOG relinquish their hold on the trophy after their hat-trick of victories from 2014-2016. With only 14 possible counters out of the required 15, due to a scarcity of juniors and seniors, the club were always up against it and the nail in the coffin was delivered in the chase when our erstwhile publicity office decided to mp 😉

Nevertheless, some performances on the night were noteworthy, with Liam and Paul M both delivering the maximum 100m points available in their classes and other strong runs came from Ben (96pts), Paul B (95), John (94), Tanya (92), Craig (91) & Mark (91). Also contributing points to the team tally were Hannah, Ali, Amanda, Marcus, Robert and Helen. Thanks to all who came along to support the cause and hopefully we can recapture the trophy next year on home soil. The results from the event can be found here
