Top bowler rep­re­sents Woodgate in cham­pi­onship

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

WOOGATE has a new cham­pion sports­man and a club that con­tin­ues to pro­duce out­stand­ing re­sults in bowls.

Some might sug­gest that lawn bowls might not qual­ify as a sport but for Woodgate lo­cal he has snatched the win­ners cup.

The hum­ble cham­pion bowler Greg Sil­ver­thorne is the 2016 A Grade Sin­gles cham­pion at Woodgate Beach Bowls Club.

This sports­man has some­thing of a his­tory with the sport, win­ning the un­der-15s Sin­gles cham­pi­onship in Dar­win many years ago.

In June of this year Sil­ver­thorne won the Bund­aberg Dis­trict Sin­gles at Broth­ers Club de­feat­ing some well-known cham­pi­ons from the re­gion.

Sil­ver­thorne has ded­i­cated many hours per week to prac­tice and the proof of that was shown on the green after de­feat­ing the pre­vi­ous win­ners in Bur­nett, Biloela and Port Cur­tis dis­tricts, Sil­ver­thorne was awarded the Zone Ti­tle.

Col Ensby and Rob Han­nah, ac­com­pa­nied Sil­ver­thorne to his ti­tle matches and he thanks them both for their sup­port and help.

The sched­uled event on Oc­to­ber 26-27, Sil­ver­thorne is set to join seven other Zone Sin­gles win­ners at Musgrave Hill Club.

The teams will come to gather on the green to bat­tle it out for the pres­ti­gious ti­tle of “Queens­land State Cham­pion of Cham­pi­ons Sin­gles”.

It goes with­out say­ing Sil­ver­thorne has de­voted many hours to prac­tice and is in good step for a win.

There is no doubt that with Sil­ver­thorne’s ded­i­ca­tion and pas­sion for his sport he will go into this com­pe­ti­tion with a very good chance of a win and pro­vide staunch com­pe­ti­tion for his op­po­si­tion.

Sil­ver­thorne has the full sup­port of the mem­bers of both men’s and ladies’ Woodgate Bowls Club teams.

Teams mem­bers of Sil­ver­thorne ad­mire his skill, ded­i­ca­tion and pas­sion for the sport of bowls.

As Sil­ver­thorne pre­pares for the cham­pi­onship his fel­low club mem­bers would like to wish him the best of luck for the next event.

The Woodgate Bowls mem­bers would like to thank the com­mu­ni­ties of Childers and Woodgate for sup­port­ing the club and game in bowls in Woodgate.

The Woodgate Bowls Club wel­comes new mem­bers to sign up for ei­ther the women’s or men’s team.

The sea breeze gives play­ers a spec­tac­u­lar lo­ca­tion on the foreshore of Woodgate beach.

For fur­ther in­for­ma­tion and mem­ber­ship de­tails, phone the club on 4126 8880.

WIN­NER: Greg Sil­ver­thorne.
