FINALS DAY RESULTS 2023.

 

Triples

 

Due to the number of teams entering this year , the triples only had one league so it was decided the winner of the Competition would be the team with the most points having played all of there games.

 

Today (29/08) saw Brain Hutchings, Chin Tory and Derek Gilder become the 2023 triples competition winner finishing with 9 points to top the Table, Second place went to John Atkinson's team of Him, Tony Glenn and Mike Jeffreys, three teams finished on 4 points but goal difference meant Third team was Jeff Tebbutt, Linda Clark and Len Staples. Fourth were Andy Denniss, Lynne Brown and Malcolm Summerville. Fifth were Paul Riseborough, Tricia Jeffreys and Rae Glenn, whilst the wooden spoon went to Robin Edmett, Gill Crane and Sue Douglas finishing with 2 points. So Big Congratulations to Brian's team.

 

PAIRS 

 

This game was between Myself and Peter Moss v Brian Hutchings and Mike Jeffreys.  A very close first 9 ends saw the score fairly even but a five on one end to Andy and Pete saw them take the lead and managed to hold on to the end to win 21-11.

 

Singles

I marked this game and after an even start John Atkinson took the lead from out chairman Brian Hutchings and despite his best efforts  Brian was unable to mount a recovery and John wnet on to win 23-7

 

 

TEMBEY.

 

This years finalists were Paul Riseborough and Chin Tory. Chin again continued her fine form that she has been in all year and gave Paul a tough game that but his experience managed to get a win 16-10.

 

 

HAROLD HARDY 

Finalists - Andy Denniss and Robin Edmett
Each player has four bowls and the match is played as the best of three sets. The first player to score 7 wins the set.

The first set won by myself 8-3 and the second set went to a decisive end. Robin was bowling very well and when i put in a good wood, he seemed to be able to find a better one, Anyway at 6-6 in the second set i managed to get a lucky couple in to win 8-6 but a very good game of high quality. 

 

OVER 75's 

  

   

Finalists this year were Robin Edmett & Pete Moss. A repeat of last year ?
This competition is played over 12 ends with each player having 3 bowls each.
Pete said that this was closer than last year but with Robin bowling very well Robin was able to win the match 11-8

 

2WOOD PAIRS

 

Finalists Rose Mitchell and Linda Clark v Steve Field and Jeff Tebbutt

 

The first to ten in the 2 wood Pairs and Steve Field in his first year with the club came out successful with Jeff winning 10-5. To celebrate his win Steve went on a four week cruise the next day, What will he do if he wins the singles ?

 

 

2WOOD SINGLES

 

It looks like this was a good game with Simon Tory just edging out Gill Crane 7-4  

 

 

 

WHITWORTH TROPHY

 

This game was played on Monday 11th Sept at 1430 due to fixture congestion on Finals Day. On a pleasant day Andy Denniss and John Atkinson fought it out for the Whitworth Trophy which is the winner of this years singles (John) v last years singles Winner (me).  Now after two ends it was 1-1 and then i took a 4 so a commanding lead, However John took a 3 on the next end and never looked back really as he sailed into a commanding lead and finished up winning 21-8. Normally i would say John had all the Luck but he didn't, he just bowled a lot better than i did so no complaints from me. Congratulations John.
