22 January.

A belated happy New Year to all our bowlers.

The 2022 year began on 12 January but up until now there has been little to report, with bowls washed-out last Wednesday, but happily the first and second rounds of the Club Championship Singles made a start today with five matches being determined.

Hilton Newman received a tough draw taking on Club Champion, Jeff Baker in the first round.

Hilton did well to take 14 shots out of the game with Jeff winning 31-14.

It was hard to predict the winner of the Dave Perry, Graeme Reynolds game and so it turned out to be with Dave managing a 31-24 win.

Doug Andrews found himself in a close tussle with Henry Dallas when he tweaked his back and had to concede the game with Henry leading 26-22.

The closest game of all was the Col Amos, Rob Young tussle with the match going down to the wire with Col prevailing in the end, 31-29.

Probably the upset of the day was a great win to Tony Butler over the more fancied Greg Smith.

I know Tony has been putting many hours into practice and it paid off for him today beating Greg 31-21.

A dark horse no longer.

The match of the day must be the game between octogenarians, Barry Goode and Henry Dallas,

It was a memorable game with Barry securing the win, 31-26.

There will be some great bowls played in the quarter-finals next Saturday.

Jeff Baker takes on Dave Perry.

Tony Butler is opposed to Peter Gurney.

‘Longbowmen’ Geoffrey Muggleton will play Barry Goode.
