Men’s Bowls
There was only one Club Championship game played over the weekend and that was a Handicap Singles game played between Andrew Sparke and Wayne Reeves. As there was no score card left at the Club I was only able to get the final score from the score board. I believe Andrew Sparke defeated Wayne Reeves 31 shots to 24 shots but over how many ends is anybody’s guess.
Now to next weekend’s Club Championships:
Saturday November 21st: Start: 1.00pm. Starter and Umpire: Robert Walls.
Major/Minor Pairs: Steven Sole and Robert Walls to play Dan Kennedy and Grahame Starr.
Sunday November 22nd: Start: 1.00pm. Starter and Umpire: ?
Major/Minor Pairs Semi Final: Winner of Saturday’s game between Dan Kennedy and Steven Sole to play Robert Moore and Cameron Peardon.
To help the Match Committee finish 2019/20 season boarded games are play or forfeit.
