Marshall Shield - 2024

A victorious Harrogate BC -75 years since raising it last! A victorious Harrogate BC -75 years since raising it last!

2023 provided a fond return of the Marshall Shield competition after a 5 year absence. A competition embroiled in Yorkshire hospitality and strongly contested end to end play. Traditionally an aggregate scored -  3 x rink competition spanning the counties expansive 4 zoned territory.

The final for 2023 saw a marginal lead by Harrogate BC whittled away right to the final end by a tenacious Brotton BC. Deciding play ran through to the last remaining rink and final bowl that saw Harrogate cling on to a single point victory. A nail biting finale to one of Yorkshires oldest contested competitions and a huge boost to Harrogate morale with some 75 years since they last lifted the shield.

To all those that say it cant be done - well it appears it can be :-)
