John & Fiona Kennish win Kenny Parker Rosebowl

A total of 30 pairs came together at South Ramsey’s green on Sunday to battle for the Kenny Parker Any Combination Doubles Rosebowl.

The competition was run by North Ramsey but had been switched from the Mooragh Park to allow the green there more time to recover from the extensive work that has been undertaken over the winter.
While a persistent mist lingered all day it did at least remain dry allowing for some competitive bowling on a green that was running well. In the end the final was an all South Ramsey family affair with John and Fiona Kennish triumphing 21 – 15 over Andy Kennish and Alan Moore in a closely fought final.

Losing out in the semis were the North Ramsey pairng ofSteve Parker and Steve Walmsley along with LynBolton from South Ramsey and Trevor Quayle from Port St Mary. Fallers at the quarter final stage were T & P Collins, A & P Taylor, F Watson and J Surridge and S Kelly and M Kneen.

At the end of a good day’s bowling Kenny’s son Steve presented the trophy to the winners, thanking all those who had helped to organise the day and giving particular thanks to South Ramsey for making their green available for the running of the competition and for providing the catering.
