Weekly report – Sunday, 22nd February 2015

Saturday was Singles a–plenty across the Ex–servo’s green as the remaining round 1 fixtures of the Major Singles championship were contested. Despite the looming threat of rain, all games managed to complete without disruption. There was some great contests on show, none more so than that between Gary Thurston and ‘Dooley’ Gould. Only his second roll since an extended absence, it was good to see Dooley back in action. Despite his absence Dooley has certainly not lost his bowling edge as he pressed Gary all afternoon in a very tight contest, before Gary eventually escaped with the win. Congratulations to all winners and good luck in the second round. Saturday prize winners were;

1st J O’Dell (( G Hulbert (marker)
2nd M Hill
