ILMINSTER Bowling Club finished the season in superb style with three great wins in the men's Somerset County League which sealed an incredible treble.

The A Team clinched the Premier 1 title with a 10-2 home win over Taunton Deane A, the B Team won the Premier 2 title at their first attempt with a 10-2 win away at City of Wells and the C Team won the South West 2 title with a 10-2 home win against Watchet B.

Winning three such titles in the same year is unheard of in the club's history and must be a record for a Somerset club.

Next year, both the A Team and the B Team will play in the County Premier League 1, which has never been achieved by a club before.

A delighted team manager, Jonny Kingston, paid tribute to the many players who had turned out for the club during the season and praised the great team spirit which had inspired the successes.
