Spar Mixed Doubles

On Sunday Ballaugh Bowling club held the spar Mixed Pairs. With an entry of 44 pairs it was always going to be a long day but the weather kept fair and there was good bowling.

The final saw the husband and wife duo of Matthew and Alison Keggen in their first final against defending champions Trevor Quayle & Lyn Bolton. The Keggen’s raced into a 13-5 lead before a great bowl from Trevor under pressure got them on the score-sheet and with the block they had a run taking them into a 15-13 lead. Matthew & Alison regained the jack on a tight measure and with the jack back ran out to win 21-15 and their first mixed doubles.

The losing semi finalists were Ann Gale and John Breen and Elaine Moore and Stefan Kelly. At the conclusion Club Vice President John Keenan presented the prizes and thanked our sponsors spar for their continuing support, Richard Faragher & Paul Bradford for running the competition and the ladies of the Club for keeping us all fed and watered.
