In one of the last competition matches of the Folkestone Indoor Bowls Season on 10th April the Kearsney Team - gallantly lead by J. J. Smith - overcame opposition from New Romney in the Final of the Standen Cup to win by 57 shots to 42 in what was a nail-biting finale with two of the Kearsney rinks chasing to make up ground throughout. The deficit, however, was more than made up by the Kearsney rink skipped by Captain J. J. Smith that secured the overall shot lead for victory. Kearsney men were undoubtedly spurred on by supporters who together made for a memorable final. Well done to all. At the Annual FIBC Dinner and Presentation Evening held at Folkestone on 20th April 2018, Capt. J J. Smith was presented with the Standen Cup, accompanied by Team members Steve Smith, David Gavin & Mick Willis. See 'Photos' for Team Finalist
