Shire Park Bowls Club had good weather for their finals day, which turned out to be very competitive.
In the main competitions, Mick Wood beat Rob Kenway 21-18 in the men’s championship, while Liz Edwards beat Laura Hastings by the same score in the women’s championship.
In the two woods, Tom Brown defeated Andy Wells 14-11, while Mike Howe beat Kevin Brazier 15-7 in the three woods.
In the men’s handicap, Gus Edwards defeated Kenway 21-17 and in the yardstick he overcame Bill Jakes 41-34.
The Novices final was between Edwards and Martin Reeve, who won 21-9 and then teamed up with Gus Edwards in the drawn pairs to defeat Kevin Brazier and Laura Hastings 31-18.
Matches had been delayed 24 hours because of Shire Park player Ian Kirsch’s wedding, but Ian and Debbie made up for this by supplying some of their wedding cake for the finals day players and spectators!
