Kewstoke hosted the Final of the Woodspring Short Mat Bowls League season on April 10th, with competition for the final prize being between Ashcombe and Mark Village.  

The first half was a whitewash for Ashcombe as they won 15-0, but the second half saw Mark Village fight back with them winning the period 7-4, but it wasn’t enough as Ashcombe held on for the 19-7 win.

The Ashcombe team were Andy Evans, Ian Mitchell, and Steve Browning, and captained by Allan Corbett. 

This event was new to the league this season, giving the clubs additional fixtures and the opportunity to encourage new and non-competitive members to try competitive bowling for the first time.

The afternoon was climaxed by the presentation of the league triples competition to winners Kewstoke, who won 14 of 16 games and amassed a total of 110 points over the season, 23 points clear of second place Hutton. 

Short Mat Bowls is a social game played indoors all the year round, there are several clubs in and around Weston that are always looking for new members.
