IAN COMPLETES HIS MARATHON WALK
LENNY MATTHEWS MEMORIAL TROPHY
On Monday 24th June, twenty-four bowlers gathered at the Club to contest its annual four-wood singles competition for the Lenny Matthews Trophy. All the early rounds consisted of nine-end games. The morning matches saw half of the entrants eliminated and a further round, in the afternoon, reduced those left to four.
The next morning, two semi-finals were played with Jim Bateman beating Geoff Wright and Geoff Worrall winning against Lorna Bateman.
After lunch the final was played in the more traditional format with the first player to twenty-one points taking the title. After a fluctuating game, Geoff Worrall beat Jim Bateman by twenty-three points to twelve over twenty ends.
At the presentation, Geoff Worrall explained, for those who did not already know, that the late Lenny Matthews had been the first member of the Club. He had been a lovely man and Geoff was delighted to win the trophy which honoured him.
Whether you're an experienced bowler or a first time enthusiast, a "local" or a visitor on holiday, you'll find a warm welcome at Pedras Lawn Bowls Club in Cabanas.
