TARRING PRIORY Club Finals 2019

Sat 7th and Sunday 8th September 2019

The weather although a little chilly to start with, was dry and not too windy making for some good bowling conditions.


The Green although improved on last year, still presented the bowlers with

some interesting challenges

Club President Derek Ridley along with Competition Secretary Stuart Logan were on hand all weekend to make sure fair play and club style won the day. Umpires Wally Burrows and Ted Hood took care of the technical bits for us on a very well run and successful weekend.


The Gordon Garrett Cup 

Keith Brinsmead

The Championship singles was played on Rink 1 of Church House Green. Keith Brinsmead managed to dominate the straighter hand and allowed Derek Meechan few openings on the more difficult drawing hand. Keith's domination allowed him to win his second Tarring Priory Singles Championship, with a 21 - 6 shots margin.


Ashbury Cup & Lepherd Cup

Derek Meechan & Alan Messer

Both teams had won the Pairs Championship previously, but this particular year one team totally dominated the final

The match lasted just 12 ends and John Fairs and Dave Levey had won just 2 of them before conceding to Derek and Alan with the score at 23-6


Roome Cup

John Schools

Keith Brinsmead playing in the first of his 4 singles finals of the weekend came second to John Schools.

John raced into a 13-6 lead, but Keith kept pegging away and at the end of the prescribed 21 ends the score was 13-12. An excellent final between 2 very good players!


Eric Charnock Cup

Derek Meechan

Derek put behind him the disappointment of losing in the Championship Singles the day before. He did however take his time to assert himself against the man he played in that match, Keith Brinsmead. Keith took the first set easily. In the second set Derek came back at the death to rescue the match. He then went from strength to strength to win the decisive third set.


Hazleden Cup

Keith Brinsmead

Keith won a very competitive match against Nick Eager. The match was finely poised at 16-16 but Keith broke away to win the title


Heppenstall Cup

Emilio DiPietro

The match was well balanced in the early stages after 10 ends Mal Spier was marginally ahead at 11-10. Emilio though had greater desire and won the next 5 ends to finish the Handicap singles Champion for 2019 with a 21-11 final score.


The Knight Cup & Chris Wood Cup

Peter Otto & Stuart Logan

Peter and Stuart built an impressive lead to win 33-11 against the winner of this trophy for the past two years Alan Messer and partner Roy Bland.
