At the recent ECBL (East Cornwall Bowling League) Finals Day held at
Looe Bowling Club on Sunday 12th September two of our bowlers
tasted success.
In the morning session the Pairs and Triples were held. Dave
Burrough and Badger started slowly in their pairs match to find
themselves 10-0 down but came back well, against the experienced
pairing of John Kelly and Lostwithiel former player and friend of the
club Glyn Coggon now representing Callington B.C., to win.
In the triples David Rowe and his team from Bodmin won after an
extra end against Roger Ellard’s team from Callington in a very tight
game with the lead swinging from one to another.
In the afternoon session we saw the rinks competition with two
teams from Looe battling it out with the eventual winners being Bob
Pacey’s experienced team but not without a fright and possible upset
on the last end. The singles competition featured two players from
Lostwithiel and after some excellent and consistent bowling from
Badger, a former champion and winner of Cornish Times trophy, he
beat Tim Carr. I am sure we will see much more of Tim in finals in
future years.
It was a very good day well hosted by Looe and its members and in
2022 will be played at Lostwithiel with hopefully many Lostwithiel
entrants and finalists.
