Saturdays Bowls

With a free weekend in store 32 men made their way to Nobles Park to take part in an adhoc singles competition, containing a plate competiton, that was put together last minute.

Dave ‘Dido’ Kelly got to grips with the green the best and came out on top of a quality field with a 21-14 win over Colin Kelly.

Dido led extremely well to his trademark short marks, and coped well when asked questions in the corners, and didn’t put a foot wrong as he bowled his way to victory.

Colin had his game of the tournament the previous round as he eliminated June Festival Winner John Kennish 21-1. Dido was again in good form beating Steve Parker 21-8.

Parker should take confidence in his performance though, as he has shown he can mix it at the top level and a 21-16 quarter final win over Neil Withers will do his credentials no harm at all.

In the plate competition Matthew Keggen took victory with a 21-18 final win over the evergreen David Faragher.

Thanks go to Nobles for their hospitality in allowing us to run the competition.
