Semi Finalists Revealed

Posted by Oiver Moody on 21 July 2019

Glorious weather greeted a plethora of bowlers this weekend as both ladies and gents battled to play their quarter finals before the deadline.  The results meant that the semi finals see a mix of familiar faces and new bowlers remaining as we reach the business end of the competitions.  The gents Championship see's a rematch from last years final as Bob George faces Fred Waite, while whoever wins the other semi final will be making their debut in the final as Luke Vizor meets Tony Packham who is a surprise face in only his first full year as a member.  The Handicap sees Ollie Moody bid for a second handicap final in a row as he takes on Gary Plant, last years Novice champion, while its a family affair in the bottom half of the draw as father and son, Fred and Andy Waite meet for dinner table bragging rights.  Meanwhile the Novice semi finals see Andy Waite and Martin Davis compete against each other for the fourth time in two years with the winner taking on either Ollie Moody or John Staley in the final.  The mens pairs saw some very close quarter final matches as two of the semi finalists scraped through on the last end, the draw sees Phil Cook and Brian Coles take on Gary Shakespeare and Pete Harding, while John Burgess and Tom Croston will clash with Martin Davis and Ollie Moody, who is looking to retain his title, albeit with a different partner.


On the ladies side there are a busy few weeks ahead for Julie Shakespeare as she appears in no fewer than four semi finals.  In the Ladies Championship its familiar faces in the final four as Julie takes on Babs Salter in the top half of the draw, while the bottom half sees Judy Hallard take on Margaret Douthwaite. The handicap sees Julie facing Kay Burgess who has a 5 shot advantage while there is a absolute cracker in the other half of the draw as Babs Salter clashes with Angela Harrison.  The ladies 2 wood sees the later two clash again while Julie and Margaret clash in a rematch of last years final.  The ladies novice looks wide open as Kay Burgess in her second of three semi's takes on Jean Siddall while close friends Marilyn Harris and Hanna Gauld meet.  Finally the ladies pairs throws together Angela Harrison and Carol Woodward against Hanna Gauld and Julie, while Margaret and Babs are yet to find their opponents as there is one outstanding quarter final to be played.


We can all agree there are some great clashes coming up over the coming weeks and finals day looks like it could throw up some equally interesting ties.  Don't forget to put the date in your diaries for Saturday 31st August and Sunday 1st September as the competitiors will thrive in front of a large crowd.
