Fixtures and Results: 2021–2 Season – Cup

Round 1: 14 December 2021

With only 20 teams in the League this year, there were only eight teams involved in Round 1. The Committee decided that all six C League teams should take part, as this would give each of them at least two knockout games (one in the Cup, followed by at least one in either the Cup or the Plate). This would help to compensate for the fact that C League teams have only ten League games this season, as compared to twelve in the A and B Leagues.

In order to bring the number of teams up to eight, two teams were chosen at random from the B League. The fickle finger of fate pointed to the Park Taverners and the Chester Road Tavern.

Question Setters: Nags Head 'B', Dolphin.

Park Timers 88 67 Pack Horse Bowling Club
