Match Report & Results of Competition Finals 14th/15th September 2013

Victoria staged their competition finals over two days with members taking part experiencing good weather on Saturday and bad weather on Sunday.

The Men’s Championship singles played in atrocious weather turned out be a display of superb bowling with Tony Bray edging out Colin Gazzard by one shot.

The Men’s Handicap Four Wood singles also played in bad weather conditions saw Will Harrison get the better of the conditions than Paul Leadbeater.

The Men’s Two Wood singles played on a sunny Saturday ended with a comfortable win for Mike Cooper against Tony Bray.

Derek Hurst for the third year running skipped a winning rink in the Fours final whilst Roger Rockett having lost to Peter Wyatt in the Non-Winners final came good in the Seniors final. The unluckiest bowler in the club must be Colin Gazzard who has appeared in the Championship Final seven times and won only once! Keep trying Colin.

Several players appeared in more than one final and the pick of the bunch goes to Marysia Angove who won all three of her finals. Newcomers Tiffany Ellis and Nathan Stocker both appeared in three finals and their highlight was when they defeated Sue and Mike Cooper in the Mixed Pairs which went to an extra end. Sue Newman and Tiffany Ellis both won two out of three whilst another new bowler Peter Wyatt won in both of his appearances.  The Ladies Championship Singles and Two Wood Singles have been held over until Thursday.
