Cringle 4’s

Ewan Cooil & Waybe Roberts were in tremendous form on Saturday as they won the Cringle Cup at Castletown with a 21-16 final win over Barney Kelly and Mark Kneen.

The Port St Mary pair settled immediately with a four first end and from there were in control from the off. Kelly & Kneen who had been imperious on their way to the final had their chances at 16-15 up however the latter trailed the jack to award their opponents two and that sealed their fate.

Cooil & Roberts deserve all the accolades afforded them for mastering a tricky but immaculately prepared surface. En route to victory they knocked out John Kenninsh & James Teare in the semi finals, whilst the runners up eliminated Jerome Surridge & Frank Watson at the same stage.

Thanks go to Castletown Bowling Club and to Noel Cringle for providing the prizes for this charity competition in which over £200 was raised for Manx Blind Welfare.
