S.K. Aussie Pairs Winners


The winners of the SK Underwriting Aussie Pairs Final at Javea Green, was ultimately decided by an Umpire´s measure! Two fabulous days of bowls, albeit in very hot conditions, was enjoyed by 48 bowlers competing in Round Robin groups of 6 teams. The four group winners went through to the semi-finals where Brian Booker and Clive English narrowly defeated Carol Davey and Mike O´Neill, and Alan Stephens and Doug Bacon held off a strong challenge from Dave Carvath and Brian Taylor. The final saw some fabulous bowls from all four players and the last end started with Brian & Clive one shot ahead. When Doug came to bowl the last wood of the match neither team was sure who was holding. Doug decided he needed to draw close to guarantee an extra end or take the match if he won the measure. Unfortunately he failed narrowly to draw the shot and also just nudged his team´s closest wood further away. The measure went against him and Brian and Clive were Champions. The Competition closed with a BBQ and disco, with the music played by our own Neil Fagin. At the presentation SK Underwriting were thanked for their very generous funding, over 1000 euro in prize money, and Mike O´Neill was congratulated for the organisation of his first competition as Match Secretary.
