Saturday Bowls

Saturday saw 16 bowlers play eight games of three bowl pairs where each team played two games of 12 ends.

Names where drawn out of a hat for teams and a great day was had by all with the results coming right down to the wire.

The winning team of Ray Griffith and Terry Hetherington had two wins 19 + 16, a close second was Matty McGrath and Graham Turner with 2wins 19 +8.

The third place prize winner was "Baldy" Frame and George Greenhalgh with two wins 18 + 12.

This format has been running for a few weeks now and has proved very popular and we will continue this while everyone wants it.

Championship Games

Sunday saw three games of championship triples with a good crowd of supporters in attendance.

The first game saw Shane Sharman, Marcus Strudwick and John Harcus (John filled in for Marty Fitzpatrick) playing Ben McNaughton, Grahah Thomson and Graham Cole.

For the first six ends there was nothing in it but after that Shane's team drew away for a good win 27 to 15.

The next game saw Luke Ramsay, Dougie Miller and Rod Ramsay play Baldy Frame, Ray Griffith and Steve Frame.

This game was all tied up after 13 ends until Baldies team won six of the next eight ends to go on to a good win 23 to 13.

The last game was Tony Peisley,Paul Keogh and Pav Cross against Lee Hetherington, Col Boehm and Clive Stibbard.

This game also started out fairly even after eight ends Lee led six to five and even though they won six ends each Lee's team ran out comfortable winners 26 to 16.

Please try to play the next round A.S.A.P. as we are running out of time and will have to force some games to get through.
