Congresbury Ladies’ captain Chris Lewis receives the Fear Cup from Somerset Ladies County President Hilary Leamon

Congresbury Ladies won Somerset’s Fear Cup competition after a tense and tightly fought game at Ashcombe Park in Weston-super-Mare at the weekend.

Up against firm favourites and 2017 Fear Cup winners Portishead RBL, Congresbury, well supported by club members, fought back from 10 shots down at the halfway stage to clinch victory by five shots as the match reached its thrilling conclusion.

The ladies began their Fear Cup campaign with wins against Ashcombe Park, Mark Moor, Victoria, St Andrew’s (both Weston-super-Mare clubs) and then met Street for the semi-final played on a neutral green at Yeovil Bowling Club.
