This week saw the climax of any clubís bowling season, the Menís & Ladiesí Singles, take place here at Miraflores. We were blessed with warm sunny days throughout the competition which finished on Saturday.


There was an excellent entry in both competitions and many long and closely contested matches leading up to the finals together with some unexpected results along the way. In the menís competition we had Tom Cordner (winner of last weekís handicap singles) up against Stuart Thacker and in the Ladiesí final we saw Nancy Shaw playing Pam Kinane. A good sized crowd had gathered in expectation to watch what were anticipated to be closely fought matches.


The Menís Final started evenly with both bowlers bowling well and the score 8-8 after 9 ends then Tom won a series of ends to lead 16-11 after 15 ends. Stuart fought back with a display of excellent draw bowling to win the championship 21-16. The match showed many twists and turns honours before Hull City fan Stuart completed his first honours board win at Miraflores.


The Ladies Final saw Nancy get off to a good start and with Pam not playing at her best she was never able to make her mark on the match leaving Nancy a comfortable 21-7 winner. Nothing should be taken away from the quality of Nancyís bowling as once again she showed remarkable consistency to win her 4th championship of the season. A fantastic feat as she had to withdraw from the only other competition for which she was eligible.


In his speech, when making the presentations after the final, Club President James Tyrer praised the quality of play in both the finals and the earlier matches and thanked all those involved as participants, markers, umpires and spectators along with Heather and Terry behind the bar.
