In what ended up a tight run league again this year, Drums have managed to say farewall to the Thurrock League as champions.
Well done to all the members that played throughout the season with all 12 bonus points being won it saw us over the line. With a starting squad of 18 to pick from, the sad passing of Mick Bonson and various sickness and holidays, it's not been easy but it looks like we just about made the right decisions as a selection committee to give the club another title.
Onwards and upwards to a new chapter as bowlers of Thurrock now.
Once again it's been a fairly good season for the Drums players in the local group and district competitions with members getting to various finals and the club contesting the League Knockout Semi final this coming weekend against Springhouse.
