The final of the Sheila Holbrook Knock Out Pairs was played last weekend, when four top players, Paul Gill and Tony Riley from Clayton were up against the Ripponden pairing of Brian Winrow and Ian Smith. The final ,played down the middle of the rinks was a superb game with all players exhibiting a variety of shots. The game began “nip and tuck” with Gill and Riley taking a 5-4 lead. The pair then scored a game changing”4” to turn the game and lead 9-4.Gill and Riley eventually running out 11-5 winners.The winners were presented with their prize by the Club’s President Ray Clegg

Yorkies (Pauline Ward, Sylvia Allott, Stewart Wright, Jack Pickles) and Focus (Alan Singleton, Eleanor Carney, John Crowson, Chris Lindsey) were involved in a battle for the runners up spot in Division 2 of the Wednesday Fours. At the final end, Focus were leading 10-5, but Yorkies fought back and were holding a “5” , before Crowson, the skip for Focus sent a bowl into the head removed the scoring bowls of Yorkies and scored a single for his team as  Focus ran out 11-5 winners and cemented their second place in the division.
