Youngster wins Briercliffe Memorial Bowling Club’s annual tournament
4:47pm Tuesday 15th October 2013 in Sport
YOUTH overcame experience at Briercliffe Memorial Bowling Club’s annual tournament.
Dean Butler got the better of his older opponent Barry Mills in an entertaining final that the younger man edged 25-21.
The competition was played in a round robin format with two groups of four players.
Each player played three games of 2-up with the winner of each group progressing to the final.
Yet again, the standard of bowls on the day was excellent.
Barry Mills topped group one after winning all three of his matches Group Two was a much tighter affir with three players winning two matches each – but it was Butler who went through to the final on account of having a better head-to-head against his two rivals. In the final itself, the match was played to 25-up, and proved to be a tight affair.
But it was Butler who just edged out the more experienced Mills who was flagging towards the end to clinch the glory in the annual event.
Tournament organiser Peter Taylor said: “The final was a very good match and, like the rest of the tournament, was played in a very good spirit.”
Butler was presented with the trophy by Briercliffe Memorial Bowling Club chairman and president Jack Burrows.
