On Thursday, 3rd August 2017, Huddersfield Army Veterans once again gathered at Lindley Bowling Club for their annual bowling match.

Before the match the weather didn't look too good but, just like last year, by the time the competition began the sun came out and it turned out to be a fine day.

This year saw a good turn out with a large number of veterans attending. The turn out was so good that by the time our President, Ian Fillan, had arrived (albeit twenty minutes late), the players had already been chosen and he didn't get chance to participate.

Veterans played sets throughout the afternoon, with last year's champion, John Tracey being knocked out of the game in the early part of the afternoon.

The sets continued until the two finalists were decided.  The last set was played between a previous champion, David Croft, and Tony Ashcroft.

Once again David took the trophy and became this year's champion, with Tony being the runner-up.
