Final countdown for the GDBA’s Gonerby event
The Grantham and District Bowls Association will hold its Finals Day on Saturday, at President Paul Jones’ home green at Great Gonerby.
The event begins at 2pm, and the majority of games will be played during the afternoon.
However, as there were less players entering competitions this year, it means that the some players have qualified in more than one final, and therefore there will be a couple of finals not played until Sunday.
The Trophy Trebles will be played on Tuesday, also at Great Gonerby, from 6pm.
The matches will be: Trophy Trebles - Paul Newton, Chris Dexter, Brian Veasey v Rob Sowerby, Jeff Kime and Tarn Oxley; Corporation Doubles Two-Wood - Nigel Smith, Jason Lewis v Bruce Allen, Graham Taylor; Downtown Superstore Four-Wood Doubles - Andrew Stafford, Colin Goodley v Rob Sowerby, Tarn Oxley; Hutchinson Cup Men’s Two-Wood Singles - Phil Edwards v Graham Taylor; Harry Hardy Open Four-Wood Singles - Phil Edwards v Jason Lewis; Hopkin Shield Ladies’ Two-Wood Singles - Margaret Allen v Caroline Davis; John Wallwork Senior Citizens Two-Wood Singles - Mick Halls v Dave Holton; Champion of Champion Two-Wood Singles - Phil Edwards v Tony Sumner; Colin Tipler Tankard Captain’s Two-Wood Singles - Barry Papworth v Jason Lewis; Nightingale Cup Secretaries Two-Wood Singles - Larry Turner v Neville Lomas.
