Two days of district finals brought a number of successes to Potters Bar Bowls Club.

Day one took place on their own Walk-based green and Bar took full advantage of being on home soil winning three of the four finals they were involved in.

An early start under grey skies did not dampen the Bar charge as Barry Woodman, Richard Pearce and Brian Vince got into their stride early and romped away to a 25-7 win over Welwyn Garden City in the Herbert Cross Triples.

Better conditions greeted the Triples League teams but the outcome was the same against Barnet.

Played over two rinks, the margin of victory for Terry Barker, Jan Southwell and David Arnold was enough to give them the overall win.

David Salmon overcome the disappointment of an incredibly narrow 21-20 defeat in the Officers Singles to WGC’s Phil Russell by linking up with Pearce to inflict defeat on North Mymms in the Herts Advertiser Pairs.

A day later Batchwood was the venue for the district ladies’ finals.

Di Jewell represented the club in the Champion of Champions and after being so close to victory in 2017, this time played a superb game to beat Margaret Moseley of Kings Langley 21-12.

However, there was disappointment for the Triples team of Anita Bowman, Ann Wood and Pam Rogers who lost to Harperbury.

And although Bar ladies reached the final of the Ladies Triples League, they were unable to emulate the men’s success of the previous day.

As with the men, they shared the two rinks but this time Hatfield took the trophy on shot difference.
