TARRING PRIORY Club Finals 2017

Sat 9th and Sunday 10th September 2017

Once again the Saturday sessions were threatened with poor weather but all matches were completed without anyone getting wet all. The finals were watched by a knowledgeable crowd and as always our Club President Derek Ridley was on hand to present the Trophies to our 2017 Champions and Runners-Up. Sunday presented more challenging, blustery and squally conditions, but despite that there were some excellent contests on the Sunday. 

CHAMPIONSHIP SINGLES -

The Gordon Garrett Cup 

Stuart Shwartz

This year Stuart managed to wrest the Singles Trophy back from the 2016 winner Keith Brinsmead. Keith made the early running but Stuart stuck to his task and some fine bowling gave him a winning score of 21-15

CHAMPIONSHIP PAIRS

Ashbury Cup & Lepherd Cup

Alan Messer & Derek Meechan

This was Derek and Alan's first Championship Pairs final. They played some excellent woods between them and built up an unassailable lead against John Hobbs and Stuart Shwartz. The match was conceded after the 17th end when Alan trailed the jack back for a 'seven' to finish with a score of 31-08. 

TWO WOOD SINGLES

Roome Cup

Keith Brinsmead

Ray Lister and Keith produced a good quality 2 Wood Singles final which went to Keith 18-12 after 19 ends.

2 SETS SINGLES

Eric Charnock Cup

John Fairs

John played solidly against Emilio Dipietro who had only recently returned from holiday in Italy. Emilio struggled to find  the pace of the green whilst John was very comfortable and finished the match 9-2 and 9-0

COMMITTEE SINGLES

Hazleden Cup

John Fairs

Before 2017, John Fairs had never won a match in this competition.  His opponent in the final certainly gave him a challenge before John ran in 5 out of the last 6 ends to pass the winning post with 21-16.

HANDICAP SINGLES

Heppenstall Cup

 Keith Brinsmead 

Keith won the match against Alan Messer at a canter. He played a long jack game and was always on the kitty and won in double quick time 21-9

HANDICAP PAIRS

The Knight Cup & Chris Wood Cup

 Alan Messer & Gus Roberts

The two pairs played out the most exciting final of the weekend and at the end of 21 ends the scoreboard read 21-21. The extra end continued to heighten the tension. Alan and Gus were holding 3 before Keith Brinsmead drove the jack through the head and into the distance. Alan responded with his last wood and a pretty perfect draw which Keith couldn't match and the game was won

TWO WOOD DRAWN PAIRS

The Brian Ford Cup

Alan Messer & Nick Eager

Up until half way Joe Peters and Matt Smith matched Alan and Nick shot for shot, but a 4 shot return on the 10th end turned the match. Joe and Matt were always playing catch up after that and Alan and NIck finished the match with an end to spare an a 20-15 margin

NEVER WON HC SINGLES

The J D Smith Cup

 Christian Pethick 

This was a really competitive final between Christian Pethick and Butch Shakespeare. Neither player could gain a substantial lead, and in the end it was Christian who just managed to get over the line to win 21-19

TWO WOOD KO TRIPLES

The Harold Webster Trophy

Derek Meechan, Alan Messer

Amrik Pannu

This year's Champions Derek, Hammy and Alan had to overcome a 3 shot handicap deficit at the start. They lost the first 2 ends and and 3 became 5 shots, They than proceeded to win 10 of the next 12 ends, racking up a 22-8 lead before the challengers conceded after 14 of the 18 ends had been played.

VETERANS HC SINGLES

The Platt Cup

John Hobbs

John deservedly ran out a 22-8 winner against Ted Hood. John was always in control and won 12 of the 19 end played. John has now won this trophy for the past 3 seasons.

DRAWN FOURS KO

The Presidents Shield

Keith Brinsmead, Joe Peters,

Dave Elliott, Nick Eager

Keith skipped his team to an emphatic win in this popular evening competition

SPOONS

The Atkins Cup

Sadly by the time 10 weeks had elapsed no players were coming to the sessions, so wih regret no Spoons Competition was completed in 2017

MONDAY NIGHT TRIPLES LEAGUE

The Dave Evans Cup

John Fairs, Mal Spier,

Gerry Davey, Mike Meadows

Stan Birch & Alan Messer

The league was played over 10 consecutive Monday evenings. John Fairs's team timed their winning run perfectly and only topped the table by winning in the final series to take the title by 2 points. 

 

Squad members picured are:

J Fairs,  G Davey, & A Messer

THE AGGREGATE LEAGUE

Alan Messer

The Aggregate League was a new competition introduced in 2016  to allow more flexibility in the SCB competition rounds during the early part of the season. Alan Messer has now won both stagings of the event

ONE DAY DRAWN 2 WOOD PAIRS

Cash Competition

Keith Brinsmead and Amrik Pannu

24 bowlers enjoyed a good day in the kind September weather. All the players were grouped into two pools and drawn together by club handicap. Obviously some pairs came out with slightly advantageous draws. The final between Keith, Hammy and Emilio and Ray certainly leant credence to this and it was a tight game between two quality pairings.  Only skilful drawing on the last end by Keith separated the two teams after the 10 end match was completed.
