2015 Tyneside Quaich Tournament. Tyneside.

[18th May 2015; Reporter: Derek Watts]

The TCC Quaich 2015 took place at Tyneside this year on Monday 18th May and the host club were able to just snatch the trophy away from the holders Belsay Hall by 5 points.

The results were:
First round:-
    Tyneside A lost to Belsay Hall B -1t
    Middlesbrough A lost to Tyneside B -2t
    Belsay Hall A beat Middlesbrough B +7t

Second round:-
    Tyneside A beat Middlesbrough B +3t
    Belsay Hall A lost to Tyneside B -12
    Middlesbrough A lost to Tyneside B -3t

Although there were several peels carried out, these did not come into the reckoning. The weather was sunny and dry but a sharp wind kept the teams fresh! The RoT, David Appleton, was only called on occasionally and spent most of the day under the gazebo well wrapped up!
