Maddrell’s Double Cream

On Sunday Ballaugh Bowling Club held the Maddrell’s Double Cream Mixed pairs. With 45 pairs, 10 up on 2014, is was always going to be a long day and so it proved with the last bowl stopping just after 9.20pm.

The eventual winners were Matthew and Alison Keggen, who obviously like the Ballaugh green as just over a month ago won the Spar Mixed pairs on the green. In the final they defeated Dave ‘Dido’ Kelly and Christine Price 21-11.

In the semi finals Alison & Matthew overcome Harry & Joyce Kelly while Paula Firth and Jordan Cain lost out to Dido & Chris. Losing quarter finalists were Katy & Tim Williams, Amanda Lawler & Neil Withers, Sid & Casey Bolton, Roger & Maureen Payne.

At the conclusion Chairman, Jenny Maddrell thanked Richard Faragher & Paul Bradford for running the competition, and the lady members of the club for running the kitchen and keeping everyone fed.

There was also an item of lost property found with a ring being found in the ladies toilets. To claim it please contact Paul Bradford on 482349.

The next competition is the Keenan 4s Mens Doubles on Saturday 5th September 2015 commencing 1pm. Entries to Richard Faragher on 497867 by Thursday 3rd September
