Greeba Cup

Report by Heather Horsburgh

There was a strong entry of 28 pairs for the ladies’ doubles played at Marown on Saturday 11 May for the Greeba Cup. The weather was mixed, with sunshine, heavy showers and temperatures staying low.

Despite the changing conditions the standard of bowling, particularly in the latter stages, was of a high standard.

Semi-finals: Janet Monk and Lilian Slinger 21, Sonja Lees and Pat Robertson 13; Marie Ashurst and Kath Kinley 21, Helen Martin and Rachel Quirk 16.

In the final Lilian and Janet took an early lead with a 3 on the second end but from 7-10 down the Castletown pair won 4 ends in a row to lead 14-10.Points were shared up to 15-16 when a 1 and a 3 from Marie and Kath took them to “all but”. Despite a 2 on the next end from the Mooragh Park pair the trophy went to Castletown 21-17.

The presentation was made by Rosie Winckle who thanked all who had stayed to the end and everyone who had helped in the smooth running of the event.
