Port St Mary Trophy

Report by Sean Lilley

The Port St Mary Trophy, sponsored by Isle of Man Farmers Ltd, was played for on Port St Marys Bowling Green on Monday the 27th May and attracted a very good entry of 30 pairs. The weather at the beginning of the Competition was to say the least not very good, rain and a cool wind, but it improved as the afternoon wore on. The Green was as usual in excellent condition, thanks to the hard work put in by the Greenkeeper, Ray Watterson.

The winners were the team of Trevor Quayle and Lyn Bolton who beat Arthur Moore and Jenny Maddrell 21 – 9 in the final. In the semi finals the team of Quayle and Bolton beat Ray and Ann Maddrell 21 – 13 and the team of Maddrell and Moore beat Paula Firth and Jordan Cain 21 – 17. Losing out in the quarter finals were the teams of Derek Allen & Caroline Whitehead, Alec Taylor & Phillipa Fletcher, Mathew Quirk & Jean Radcliffe and Zoe Bolton & Steve Moore.

At the conclusion of the competition the prizes were presented by Mike Caley of Isle of Man Farmers Ltd.
