The Pullen Cup
SCB AREA 4 Vice Patrons
Fixtures and Results
Some Priory members subscribe to the SCB Vice Patrons Fund. This entitles them to put themselves forward for selection for SCBA Division 4 VP Matches. The VPs play friendlies as well as an Inter Divisional league competition - the Billingham League. They also contest the Pullen Cup KO annually with AREAS 1, 2 and 3.
In 2023 Ray Baker, Keith Brinsmead, Steve Davis, Nick Eager, John Fairs, and Alan Messer have made themselves available for VP matches. A further number of TP players have subscribed to the VPs but elected not to play.
If you want to play for the Div 4 VPs in 2023, make sure you let John Fairs know and he will pass your information on to Rod McBeth the Division 4 controller.

The AREA 4 VPs had won the Billingham League for 9 successive seasons but, 2021 was the year of Division 2, AREA 4 restored the natural order in 2022 by winning the league once more.
The AREA 4 team once again reached the final of the Pullen Cup in 2022 and lost by the narrowest of margins - just one shot overall. Alan Messer skipped a winning rink in the final.
