Many bowls clubs held its club championship finals over the weekend.

Clarence singles championship final featured Roger Burrough and Bill Hallworth, who were neck and neck for the first four ends, with Bill eventually emerging the winner.

By end 13, Bill was one behind, but Roger took the next three ends and built a lead of five shots, before Bill took control of the match by taking a two followed by four leaving just one to get, which he duly did, giving him a well-deserved championship winning performance.

Another notable match was in the over-70s as Hallworth took on Mick Edlin who were all square on the 19th. Bill took a four, leaving him two shots to get, but Mick scored two followed by a four to take the match.

The first time singles was taken quite convincingly by Martin Ford who is a new member to the club. The handicap singles went to Brendan Duffy who was all square at 14-apiece before he scored seven in four ends giving him victory over a gallant Brian Ballinger.

Owen in company with Les Kelly, Val Worthington and Kay Wilson were the mixed fours champions with Tony Webb, Fiona Payne, Sue Newman and Dave Williams runners-up.

The annual fixture against Notts Tourists resulted in a heavy defeat with the rink skipped by vice-captain Colin Heal recording the only win.

Banwell were visitors in a mixed game which resulted in victory on three of the four rinks, but all players enjoyed the end of season friendly.

The visitors, who have been relegated to Division 2 for next season, lost by 40 shots. Gordon Wride’s triple led the way for Saints, winning by 22 on the usually-tricky rink six which bowled well on the day.

Although Saints finished up on four of the other five rinks, some of them were close. Don Bailey and Danny Favis both won by four – the latter by scoring three on the last four ends – while team captain Brian Reeves had seven shots to spare and Mike Stocker six.

The new champions lost only four of their 16 Over-60s matches and finished 24 points clear of second-placed Winscombe, last year’s winners.

Saints entertained old friends Gloucester City in a mixed match and, fittingly, it ended in a draw.

After 10 ends, the visitors led by 10 and were up on four of the six rinks. At that stage, ex-Gloucester player Barrie Forse and Gordon Wride were the only winning home skips and they went on to finish a total of 20 shots ahead.

Derek Hurst’s quartet, two down with two ends left, came back to win. Across the green, Saints won the final end 7-4 to tie a great match.

Home captain Ken Curtis had the novel experience of playing against an entire rink of his namesakes, skip Matt Curtis, his wife and his parents, who won by nine.

St Andrews 112, Gloucester City 112: Frid Allen, H Dew, B Green, D Hurst 23-21; R Smith, Margaret Wride, C Howard, B Forse 23-17; P Smart, J Ling, T Bray, Rebecca McMillan 13-22; Jenny Webb, R Brereton, K Curtis, D Bailey 19-28; Judy Forse, A Cooper, J Warren, G Wride 22-8; G Sims, D Reynolds, Jane Smith, G Cooper 12-16.

Barrie Forse picked up his third club title and Sue Sinclair her second as they beat Marcus Dew and Marie McMillan 21-16 in the postponed final of the mixed pairs.

Forse and Sinclair were very much the favourites, but it was neck-and-neck for most of the way. The underdogs led 13-10, then, at 14-14, Forse and Sinclair picked up a four and a two to take a decisive lead.

The outdoor season ends at St Andrews on Saturday with closing day, which will feature a fun game of bowls followed by fish and chips and the presentation of trophies.

Banwell captain Phil Villis finished off a successful season by claiming two more trophies during the last days of the season.

He was successful in fighting his way through to five finals during which, he emerged as champion in four of them.

He rounded off an impressive season with an enjoyable captain’s day, where he thanked everyone for their support and hard work and wished his vice-captain well for the next season.

Winscombe won the KO Cup for a third successive year. completed the double last year winning both the league and the cup, but this year they have had to settle for second place in the league which they secured on the same day as the cup final.

Clarence failed by just one point to overhaul them in their last match of the season. The cup final match between Isle of Wedmore and Winscombe ended with a 101-77 victory for Winscombe in somewhat cloudy and at times damp conditions.

Despite the margin of victory, this was a hard fought game across five of the six rinks. The rink doing the damage, if that is the word, for Winscombe won by a margin of 20 shots. This was the rink skipped by Mike Adams, supported by Ken Whatling with a fine exhibition of lead bowling by John Sprouting.

Captain Lew Collier received the cup from league chairman Wilf Ainsworth at a celebration buffet after the game.

Winscombe 65, Knowle 57: P Hopes, D Phillips, R Bennett (K), M Dorrington 16-21; M Newing, D Johnson, M Nash, P Fredersdorff 18-16; B Flook (K), L Collier, G Coombe 15-8; T Rowe, A Pow, D Brown 16-12.
