Gavin won the club lawn bowls singles final this year in a 26-22 nail biter against Mike Kelly.
It was a see-sawing affair where the lead was close to changing a number of times, both players producing classy shots to keep the score line epic and tight.
Gavin held a slim lead for most of the match and withheld a late fight back from Mike, who was one of the 2018 clubs pair’s champions.
Both players went in to the match determined to add their name to the clubs honour board.
Well done to both players for their excellent show of bowling skills and gamesmanship.

Well done and congratulations Linda and well done Helen, a great achievement to reach the finals.

Greg Nicholls & Mike Kelly
Sunday morning the 17th December, saw the final battle of the Men’s Pairs. Again, there had been some fabulous games in the preliminary rounds but, wow, what a game the final turned out to be! The finalists were Greg Nicholls and Mike Kelly playing Gavin Bransgrove and Don McCracken.
What an excellent show of bowling skills and gamesmanship on both sides. It went down to the wire, 18 all on 17 ends with only millimetres separating shot and the opposing teams bowl. All four players played an exceptional game. On many ends a bowls mat over the head would have covered the majority of the bowls played. However, only one side could claim victory and that was Greg Nicholls and Mike Kelly. It was a game of incredibly high quality and although Greg and Mike must be congratulated on a magnificent win, all four must be congratulated on the skills they exhibited.
