 CAA Almeria Men's Singles

Nov. 2018 - Almeria BC

Report by Vic Parsons, photo editing  by John Carr. 

Text Box:  

The Menís Singles Knockout competition was played at Indalo Bowling Club from Saturday 23rd until Sunday on Monday 25th November. Very good support with thirty -two entries from Indalo, Almeria and Cabrera Bowling Clubs. The weather was good over the three days with a slight chill at times and a trifle windy, the quality of entries was excellent, and play proved to be very exciting throughout. Many expected winners did not make it to the final stages of competition.

The Final was between the winner from Indalo bowling club David Horton, against Chris Ewer from Almeria bowling club.  For both players, this was always going to be a tough game as both players had good wins in their semi-finals. David over Bryan Thompson of Almeria and Chris against John Mannall of Indalo.

David started well in the final and although Chris had been on fire in his previous rounds and especially in the semi-final against John Mannall but was not on form in the final. David who did not start bowling until the age of 68 but had worked very hard at improving all aspects of his delivery which proved to be worthwhile and the proof of his improvement was the result.

David lead for sixteen ends until Chris took the lead on the seventeenth end but couldnít maintain it as David scored two shots on each of the last three ends taking the championship.

On completion of the competition the Delgado of CAA, Ruth Compton, thanked John Sephton for running the competition, all those that took part, bar and ground staff, markers and umpires, which without the competition could not take place. She thanked the Indalo staff for hosting the competition and finally the supporters where Almeria were in abundance. She then presented the trophy and prizes to the finalists.

Winner, David Horton.

Winner, Finalist & Delgado.
