On fire at friendly RUGBY Hooper’s top ef­fort BOWLS

Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -

UXBRIDGE saw their sched­uled sea­son-opener with Lon­don Media re­sult in a walkover into the next round of the FA Ju­nior Vase, but the club did get up and run­ning by win­ning a hastily-ar­ranged friendly with Northolt.

It did not take the home side long to open the scor­ing with a quick­ly­con­verted try and some good work from Adam Lackey then al­lowed Eoin Don­nelly in for Uxbridge’s sec­ond to stretch the ad­van­tage to 14-0.

The game was over as a con­test af­ter 20 min­utes when a third score was added in the cor­ner fol­low­ing some good Uxbridge build-up play. Northolt fi­nally got on the board shortly be­fore the in­ter­val and they went in 21-5 at the break.

Northolt threat­ened a come­back, re­duc­ing the deficit by a fur­ther five points, but it was too lit­tle too late. FASS­NIDGE Bowls Club cap­tain Alan Hooper led by ex­am­ple this week.

Hooper claimed Cham­pi­onship glory at Fass­nidge’s an­nual fi­nals day, lifted the men’s sin­gles ti­tle and was run­ner-up in the hand­i­cap com­pe­ti­tion to Su­san Ge­orge.

Ge­orge also starred on the day by win­ning the com­mit­tee cup and the two eoods sec­tion ahead of Graham Sum­mer­field, who was also pipped in the novices by ladies sin­gles cham­pi­ons Sue Lawes.

Sue Thomas and Trevor Fitzger­ald scooped top prize in the pairs while the triples crown went to Ryan Ge­orge, Trevor Fitzger­ald and David Ge­orge.

Fass­nidge are also due to host the fi­nals of the Chiltern and Thames Mixed triples knock­out com­pe­ti­tion on Septem­ber 20, with Hooper set to fea­ture along­side Su­san and David Ge­orge.

The club are cur­rently on the look­out for new play­ers and are invit­ing prospec­tive re­cruits on Tues­days from 6pm at the Green, in Fass­nidge Park.
