Julia North Ladies’ Singles

There was an entry of 32 for the ladies’ singles played at Marown on Saturday 25 June for the Julia North Trophy.

The fast and very tricky green engendered a sense of fun in some of the games and there were some excellent bowls played in a friendly atmosphere.

Quarter-finals: Katy Williams 21, Julie Reilly 17; Janet Monk 21, Alison Keggen 19; Lisa Boland 21, Rosie Winckle 18; Caroline Parker 21, Margaret Tasker 9.

This left 3 players from Mooragh Park plus Lisa Boland from Douglas in the semi-finals.

Semi-finals: Janet Monk 21, Katy Williams 20; Caroline Parker 21, Lisa Boland 18.

After two very close semi-finals, Janet got the bit between her teeth in the final, and although Caroline managed to take two 2’s and a single off her, she came through to win 21-11.

Rosie Winckle thanked everyone who came, and those who stayed to the end. Thanks also went to those who had helped during the afternoon.

She then introduced Julia North to make the presentations. Julia congratulated those who had taken part in the latter stages, and commented on the tense semi-finals and the standard of bowls in the final.
