Fab Malaga Delegation - Mens' 2 Bowl Pairs

March 2019

Whilst Saydo Bowls Club hosted the Ladies event, La Posada Bowls Club were the hosts for the corresponding Menís 2 Bowl Pairs Tournament, held over 2 days, 3rd & 4th March 2019.

15 teams entered the Menís competition which, on day one, featured 7 first round matches, followed by the quarter finals. All turned out to be pretty one sided affairs, with teams from La Posada, Benavista, Saydo and Mijas winning through to the semi finals.

The morning of day two saw the team of Georg Hamblin and Nigel Snaith from La Posada up against the Benavista team of Mick Jones and Mike Old. This too turned out to be a one sided match, with Georg and Nigel unable to get into their stride and having to concede defeat after 15 ends with the score standing at 4-22.

The other semi final was a much more closely fought affair, going all the way to 18 ends. It featured Bill Hill and Terry Brooker from Saydo against Steve Ward and John Wilson from Mijas. Bill and Terry held the upper hand in the early stages and had a good lead of 13-6 after 10 ends but back came the Mijas pair of Steve and John, winning 7 of the last 8 ends to run out winners by 19-15.

So, the afternoonís final was between the Benavista pair of Mick Jones and Mike Old and the Mijas pair of Steve Ward and John Wilson and what a see-saw battle it turned out to be. Steve and John stormed into an 8-0 lead after just 3 ends and led 9-2 after 5. Mick and Mike then staged a great fight back, winning the next 8 ends to turn the match around, taking a 13-9 lead. Steve and John then proceeded to turn the match on its head once again, picking up 9 shots over the next 4 ends, to win the match 18-13 after 17 topsy-turvy ends.

Tournament Organiser, Jeff Rowe, presented the trophies at the end of the match and congratulated both pairs for putting on such a great final for the many spectators who were present to watch.
