A Double Win For Nobles

On Sunday 29th April, a surprisingly sunny and warm spring day, Nobles Bowling Club hosted the Cu-Plas Callow pairs competitions, with 19 ladies pairs and 23 mens pairs taking part.

There was some extremely good bowling on both greens all afternoon, on number one it was the South Ramsey sisters Shelley and Bethany Kennish taking on the home greeners Rebecca Teare and Clare Cooper in the first semi-final, with two time winners Jenny Moore and Fiona Kennish taking on Chris Price and Jan West in the other semi-final. Both Rebecca and Clare, and Jenny and Fiona started well, with some strong ends, to secure their places in the final.

In the final Jenny and Fiona started very strong, having the home greeners worried with a huge lead of 12-3. Once Rebecca and Clare settled into the game they fought back well to take the trophy with a 21-15 win.

In the Mens competition on number two it was the father and son pairing of Bod and Glenn Boland who contested the final against Sid Bolton and Mike Hargraves. It was another victory for a Nobles pair, with Bod and Glenn beating Sid and Mike to 21-13.

The losing semi-finalists in the Mens competition were Les Brookes and Reg Temporaza and Alec Taylor and Derek Allen.

Thank you to everyone involved in the running of the competition, the lovely catering, all the supporters, and to anyone who stepped in to measure.
