BOWLS Duo make it a double
THERE was a double reason to celebrate for Ladygate Bowling Club ladies’ Sylvia Laws and Ray Bragazza last week.
The duo teamed up with Gwen Richards to defeat Isleworth to win the Middlesex two wood triples and also alongside Yvonne Bardley were victorious in the Harrow & District triples.
Mill beat Uxbridge in dramatic circumstances to lift the Coronation Shield. They managed to win a tense final on the additional rink after the two teams were tied at 37-37.
The Mill foursome of Rod Richardson, Perry Foran, David Garside and Kevin Worboys opened with a 27-9 victory but Tony Jones, Mike Hulbert, Charlie Lyons and Ron Burch lost 28-10 resulting in the deciding rink.
The Ruislip club also beat Pinner in a friendly 73-68, with the highest scoring rink involving Lyons, winning 18-13.
Elsewhere, Rosedale had a convincing 84-56 win over BA Concorde in their latest friendly last week with S Wilson, T Rodwell and P Wakefield having the highest winning rink as the trio triumphed 21-6.
Now the outdoor season is coming to a close there will be indoor bowls at Ji-Hi through the winter. Anyone interested can call Malcolm Bond on 07516 248 346.
