Moore & Teare Retain Haldane Fisher Mixed Doubles
Sunday 27th May saw the Haldane Fisher sponsored Mixed Doubles held at the Villa with a good entry.
After some hotly contested games in the early rounds the Quarter Finals saw Alison Keggen and Glenn Boland go down 21-8 to the ever consistent pairing of Lyn Bolton and Trevor Quayle.
The next game up was an all South Ramsey affair and saw a closer battle with Elaine Moore and Glynn Hargraves finally pipping Fiona Kennish and Alan Moore 21-17.
In another all South Ramsey game we saw Jenny Moore and James Teare beating Kim Hargraves and Stefan Kelly 21-15 while the last of the Quarter Finals saw Janet Monk and Rob Monk beating Paula Firth and Jordan Cain 21-13.
The first of the Semi Finals saw Lyn and Trevor being too strong for Elaine and Glynn on the day as they ran out 21-12 winners and in the other we saw a titanic battle with Jenny and James eventually beating Janet and Rob Monk 21-20 and although I know that Janet loves to win she also just loves to play on the Villa Green so I am sure she got some consolation from that.
So as we came to the Final we knew this was going to be a battle and after some very good bowls it was Jenny and James who took the honours by winning 21-19 from Lyn and Trevor.
So that concluded a great day’s bowls on a very good green and many thanks are due to Sponsors Haldane Fisher and to Douglas Bowling Club Members with special thanks to Paula and Stuey Garrett and Andy Cannell.
