In the final week of the Indoor Bowls season we saw some great bowling which went to prove how much the standard of the game is improving locally.
In the Premier Pairs the Champions Dragons were held to a draw by Likely Lads while second placed Cheesemakers beat third placed Villans 4-0 in a game that saw Cheesemakers playing very well and Villans not getting any luck on the night. Young Guns beat Northern Nomads 4-0 and Spinners achieved the same result against Jazz while Radical Heads and Tee Pegs played out a 2-2 draw.
In the final night of the 2018/2019 Season we saw the First Division Team Champions Maxums have a bye and the runners up Odd Balls beat Mann Utd 6-0. Smugglers beat Castletown Crofters 4-2, Bowledly Going Nowhere had a strong 6-0 win over Flat Mats and Odds and Bob’s finished strongly with a 5-1 win over third placed D.N.A.
So with this being the end of the season I will give a quick look at the final leagues positions. In the Premier Pairs we have Dragons as Champions with Cheesemakers runner up and Jazz relegated.
In the First Division Pairs we have the League Champions as Orange Peelers, runner up is Castletown Crofters and relegated are Odds and Bobs.
The Second Division Pairs has been a great success and has seen the development of a number of newcomers, the Champions are Odds and Bob’s 2 with the runner up Reckless Rollers with no relegation from this League.
The Premier Team League was won by Dragons with QPR as runner up and relegated are Saltire. This has been a hotly contested League with some very close matches throughout the Season and I have watched some great bowling at the games.
The First Division Teams League has been supported with great enthusiasm and the Champions from this are the very popular Maxums with Odd Balls as runner up.
Finally we look at the equally enthusiastically supported and popular Morning League which saw Villans become Champions for the third year in succession with Maxums as runner and again there is no relegation from this league.
So that brings the 2018/2019 Season to a close and may I wish good luck to all for their outdoor summer bowling whether it be in Crown Green or Lawn Bowls and don’t forget the A.G.M. on 29th March at the N.S.C.
