Sport reports July 29th
Well the weather sure threw a spanner in the works over the weekend, only two Club Championship games were played.
Saturday July 25th saw an Open Singles game between Anthony Bull and John McIlwain. John was in fine form taking control of the game from the first bowl and never let Anthony settle into the game. John went on to take the win over 21 ends.
The other game was a Handicap Singles Game played between Robert Goodchild (+8) and Robert Moore (-1), it was good to see an up and coming bowler in Bob The Barman showing that he is capable of keeping more seasoned bowlers interested. Even though Robert Moore went on to take the victory in this encounter 31 shots to 10 shots over 18 ends.
This weekend Saturday August 1st: Start: 12.00pm. Starter and Umpire: John Jackson.
Club Pairs: Scott Campbell and Boyd Stanley to play Dan Kennedy and Barry Walls. John Jackson and Barry Campbell to play Cameron Peardon and Murray Bourke.
Weather permitting these games are play or forfeit, Match Committee.
