Brooms Head Club Championship games

Congratulations to all bowlers on their efforts in District Championships so far this year.

For a small Club like ours it shows that improvement in skill is happening – keep up the good work. Our first Zone playoff at Pottsville saw the side of Phil Owen, Mick Charters, Mark Swain and Scott Swain put up a battle in the first game, but unfortunately losing overall. The other side of Robbie Woldseth, Paul Youlten, Steve Matheson and Steve Colley had a win in their first game with all bowlers playing well.

The semi-final on the Sunday was a different day with the side from Lismore South too good for our side, bad luck boys, at least we were defeated by the eventual winners, and Lismore South won the final convincingly, good luck to them.

Thanks also to the spectators who attended, it was very much appreciated.

We have 4 sides in the District Reserve Pairs next weekend, hopefully a win is in the air!!

Winners for the last few galas were:

29th January: Reg Austin, Mark Swain, Robyn McCarthy.

2nd February: Mick McCarthy, Rhoda Pedrana, Phil Owen.

5th February: Erika Koolloos, Max Morgan, Mick McCarthy, Reg Austin.

12th February: Mick McCarthy, Steve Colley, Mark Swain.

Corner to Corner now stands at $351.00, who will be the one; it’s getting close to someone knocking it off!!

Club Championship results are:

A Grade Singles – Blair Littlechild 31 d Mark Baxter 15; Gary Powell 31 d Eric Muir 11; Mick McCarthy 31 d Greg Turner 16; Reg Austin 31 d Steve Colley 28; Steve Matheson 31 d Phil Owen 22.

Maher Cup – Steve Colley 21 d Kath Kermode 6; Sean Maher 21 d Robyn McCarthy 14.

Well done to all winners, especially Reg Austin on a great win in a very tense and close game of bowls – it came down to one or two bowls in it. Brilliant to play and brilliant to watch.
