Kennish ‘Cains’ the Opposition

Yet another superb display of bowling by South Ramsey’s John Kennish ensured a third consecutive Cain Cup victory at Castletown on Sunday.

Having beaten the impressive Wayne Roberts (Port St Mary) in the semi final 21-9 he then ran out from 10-10 to beat Onchan’s Phil Kerruish in the final to ensure the Cup, which was presented by the home club’s President Ron Williams, would remain in his already bulging trophy cabinet.

Kerruish’s path to the final was a little more difficult because after Matthew Keggen (Marown) had lost out 21-17 in the quarter final, he only just managed to beat Kennish’s clubmate Glynn Hargraves to 21-20 in an epic semi final tussle.

The other quarter finalists from a total of 36 players who entered this non-handicap, 21up event were David Bradford (South Ramsey) plus two home players, Mike Hargraves and David Faragher.
