Potters Bar Bowls Club made sure the Bob Vise Trophy wouldn’t be lonely in the trophy cabinet by adding more silverware in the district finals.

Richard Pearce took the Stan Winters Champion of champions trophy by beating Brian Smith of Hemel Hempstead 21-15 although David Salmon couldn’t join his success as he lost to Peter Russell from Welwyn & District on adjacent rink.

But the pair teamed up with Mick Brennan to claim a come-from-behind win in the Vasen Two-Wood Triples against Townsend.

The Stockman Winser Mixed Fours was also secured thanks to a 24-20 win for Anita Bowman, Rita Hamshere, Barry Woodman and Terry Barker.

Pearce and Salmon came back together for their third match of the day in the Herts Advertiser Pairs.

But they couldn’t get the best of Welwyn & District, losing 19-13.

The ladies had their finals on Sunday and the trophies continued with victory in the Triples League final.

Di Jewell was the final Bar representative of the weekend in the ‘Champion of Champions’, a competition played with the winner the first to 21 points.

And she led 18-12 before Laura Hastings from Shire Park bowled herself back into the game. And it all came down to the final wood, which the Shire Park bowler delivered perfectly against the jack for the 21-20 win. Bar did add the Gordon Ridout Trophy to their collection though when Colin Malone, Brian Vince, Barry Woodman and Barker won by one shot overall.
