1:00pm Wednesday 11th September 2013 in Sport
BRIMFIELD and Little Hereford Bowling Club’s finals day saw a new club record for one of its rising stars and a hat-trick of wins for a senior member.
Ashley Edwards, aged 24, set the record with a fifth win in the men’s singles, defeating Cyril Wait 21-9.
But the major plaudits went to Barbara Griffiths who played in three finals and was on the winning side every time.
“It’s been a long day but a very happy one,” said Barbara.
It was also a happy day for the Allen family, with Jim and Lynne Allen taking home three trophies between them. After a narrow 21-19 win over Rob Smith in the Millennium Plate, Jim Allen was able to congratulate wife Lynne on her victory in the Arthur Edwards singles.
Lynne was crowned club champion after defeating Jill Turberfield 21-17 in a hard-fought battle.
Griffiths, from Orleton, then picked up her first trophy in the John Collett triples, partnered by Howard Turberfield and Mike Owen. Opponents Dorothy Crew, Bill Wheatley and Mike Mallett went down 23-10.
The afternoon session provided one of the games of the day with Karen Tandler and Doug Turner unable to withstand a fightback from Jim and Lynne Allen who took the Tandler Pairs with a 24-20 win.
Griffiths then teamed up with Cyril Wait in the Albert Duval Pairs Cup and the duo beat 15-year-old Adam Walker and Helen Skinner 11-7.
Josie Ward and Mike Mallett saw off a spirited comeback from Dave Evans and Liz Smurthwaite to win the Barnett Bowl 14-11.
Helen Skinner, Barbara Griffiths and Doug Smurthwaite beat Cyril Wait, Ena Sparey and Jill Turberfield 7-6 in the Cecil O’Boyle Plate.
Club chairman Jennie Cole had a walkover in the ladies’ singles as her opponent was unable to play on the day.
“It’s been a successful year for the club at county and national level and the standard has been maintained today with some excellent bowling,” said Cole.
