SULLY Bowling Club (The Villagers) completed what has been a very busy season with their finals day on Saturday and last league match on Sunday.

The mid week team finished fifth out of fifteen a very good spot indeed. Our players got to two national finals and four county finals so well done to all concerned.

The CML league side maintained there place in Div 3 with some mixed results. Sunday was no exception, travelling to Ynysangharad park,only to get two points and lose by 55-95.

At least this years captain Dave Curtis finished on a high taking a four on the last end to win by one and getting the only points.

On Friday evening the first off the finals,four bowl pairs, was played with a stiff breeze.

Dave Curtis and John Bryan took on Doug Curtin and Trevor Murphy in a match that swung to and fro until the last few ends in which Doug and Trevor came through victorious after two and a half hours. Ten o'clock Saturday morning saw Dave back on the green in the two bowl final against Alun Rees and this game was not to get away from him running out 16-7 winner.

11 o'clock saw Trevor back in action this time with club vice capt Richard Fitzjohn against Dave Lougher and Paul Neale in two bowl pairs.

Thirteen ends had Dave and Paul winning by five but a tough team talk sorted the problem and Richard and Trevor turned it around to win the last few ends finishing 19-17,a very good game.

Dave and Alun took to the green again at 12 in the championship final and here came the first shock of the day when after a great battle were Alun got in front at the half way stage and was never seeded running out winner 21-16,well done Alun getting a win over the trophy holder.

The senior singles was between Hugh Thomas and Richard Fitzjohn and Richard got a grip of this one early on and never let go winning 22-13.

In the novice trophy Dave Lougher cruised to a win over a tiring Doug Curtin.

The last competition was a by now tired Dave Curtis against Alan Thomas in the handicap,but both were of scratch.

These two play together all season in rinks so a really good game ensued. With only a couple of shots in it all the way.

Alan always headed it and just had to avoid a score in the last few ends winning it 21-15.

So a very successful season comes to an end but there's always room for novice or experienced bowlers to join us next season on what is a very good bowling surface.
