Marown Ladies’ Singles

Thirty-three ladies’ gathered at Marown on Saturday 28 June to contest the ladies’ singles competition for the Julia North Cup.

Quarter-finals: Lilian Slinger 21, Chris Price 14; Lil Smith 21, Shirley Corrin 8; Philippa Taylor 21, Paula Garrett 17; Janet Monk 21, Mary Alderson 11.

Semi-finals: Lilian Slinger 21, Lil Smith 19; Janet Monk 21, Philippa Taylor 8

This set up a mother/daughter final with Lilian, as last year’s winner, having to give Janet 1 start. However Janet set out more strongly quickly racing to a 14-7 lead. From that point Lilian fought to get within three points at 14-17 but Janet took the next three ends to take the title 21-14.

Rosie Winckle thanked those who had entered and those who had stayed to see the final.. She also thanked those who had helped during the afternoon before introducing Julia North who congratulated the finalists, saying how much she had enjoyed watching the bowls, before presenting the prizes.
