Witterings Men’s Team – Division 3 Champions

Congratulations to the Witterings and District Bowls Club Men's team who have won the Littlehampton Gazette League Division 3 for 2012. The team won 13 of their 17 matches played, one match was rained off and finished on an impressive 123 points with a 291 shot difference. Captain Lindsay Bangs says "promotion to Division 2 is a wonderful achievement for a small bowls club who are keen to build on their success next season.

1/2nd SEPT 2012. FINALS WEEKEND REPORT AND RESULTS

posted 3 Sep 2012, 04:40 by Jen Knotts   [ updated 3 Sep 2012, 05:48 ]


The season got off to a bad start with long periods of rain which meant the competitions ran late and everyone ended up cramming in matches, sometimes playing 2 or 3 in one day - so well done to those who entered for finishing on time.
The triples weekend went well and the 2 winning teams went on to the final.

The Saturday of the finals weekend saw Chris Horsley narrowly defeating Carole Tuffin in the ladies singles. Fred Knotts and Pat Hutton came into their form towards the end of their game against Jimbo and Kate Nixon and surprised us all by turning the match around and winning the club pairs. Lindsay Bangs and John Hardy then beat John Hostler and Paul Chivers in the men's pairs. The afternoon saw John hardy beating Stu Hooker to win the Juniors and Paul Chivers beating Carole Tuffin to win the handicap. Lindsay Bangs and Fred Knotts had a brilliant game in the men's 100 up, with a tie at 100 all. On the extra end Fred just sneaked ahead and took the title.
The weather turned for us on the Sunday and it seemed to drizzle all day. Chris Horsley, Paul Chivers and Tony Nixon beat Marion Corbett, Frank Bray and Brian Curtis in the triples, Fred Knotts beat John Hardy in the 2 wood. Pat Hutton lost a close match to Carole Tuffin in the ladies 100 up. In the veterans Dave Bell beat Eric Shoyer.
The ladies pairs had winners of Ros Hanbury and Julie Mulligan over Marina Aylward and Judy Bangs. The men's singles was won by John Hardy who beat Eric Shoyer and the championship was won by Stu Hooker who had a close game with Lindsay Bangs.
The Victor Ludorum was awarded to Fred Knotts.

Thank you to all who helped - the people who set up the green, the wiggies, the markers and the umpires, also thanks to the ladies in the kitchen and to the bar staff.
 
Thank you Ros for the huge amount of organising you do to ensure that the Finals Weekend runs smoothly and is enjoyed by both competitors and spectators alike.

The blue teams had an outright winner with the team of Chris Horsley , Paul Chivers and Tony Nixon who won all of their 5 games. The white teams had 3 teams finishing with a win of 3 games. The team going through to play the blues on finals weekend are Marion Corbett, Frank Bray and Brian Curtis, who won on ends won over the whole weekend.
Many thanks to Jenny Knotts and Di Bray (who celebrated her birthday on the Saturday) for providing bacon rolls in the morning and, who along with their other helper, Ann Harsant, served us lunch. Thank you also to Keith and Carol for running the bar.
Also many thanks to Brian Curtis for agreeing to play at extremely short notice - without him the whole weekend would have been in complete disarray.
