Men’s Novice Singles Championship


The Men’s Novice Singles Championship was played on Sunday the 18th April and attracted a small but enthusiastic group of bowlers. The weather was brilliant and B green had been prepared to an excellent standard for the day.

The early sectional games were well contested with some very good games and close scores. After all qualifying games had completed and scores tallied on a win/loss plus shots-up basis, the two players to move into the final were Barney Fleiser and Gary Bayne.

With both players in good form, all indications were for a very tight game. Barney started by putting down some extremely good draw bowls, not allowing Gary any room to get a foothold in early in the game. Mid-way through the game, Gary started to accumulate some shots and build momentum, however Barney did not lose focus and kept his good form going to end up winning 21-7.

A fully deserved win by Barney and he now goes on to play in the Champion of Champions Novice Singles competition this weekend.
