On Saturday the Keenan Fours Mens Doubles Trophy was played at Ballaugh. The weather held fine with the odd show of brightness. There were 27 pairs taking part including two bowlers on the Island for the festival.

Losing out in the quarter finals were visitors Bob Wyatt and Wayne Greenwood, locals Edward Carlyle and Kevin Firth, Adrian Skinner and Sam Clague along with Harry Minor and Alan Crebbin.

The semi-finals were Mike Skelly & Bernard Thackrah versus Ian Kissack & Mike Hargraves which went to Skelly and Thackrah 21-17. The second semi-final was even closer with Glynn Hargraves and Alan Moore beating fellow South Ramsey players Steve Waters and James Teare 21-19.

On to the final where Hargraves and Moore beat Skelly and Thackrah 21-10. Both teams had played consistently well during the afternoon.

At the conclusion John Keenan presented the prizes and thanked everyone for supporting the competition, the Ballaugh club members for their hard work in running the event especially Richard Faragher and Trevor Jones running the competition hut, Voirrey Oates and the ladies for keeping everyone fed and watered and congratulated Glynn and Alan on their win.
