Brian Winrow has been one of the star players in Halifax Bowling Club’s Indoor leagues. Winrow starred in key games in the Monday Afternoon Fours and Wednesday Fours.

In the Wednesday Fours, leaders Northern Lights (Les Holmes, Mick Walker, John Beverley, Michael Hutchinson) faced second in the table Black Cats (Brian Winrow, Andy Balmforth, John Sharp, Paul Gill). With two of the best lead players in the league in opposition the game was set to be a thriller. However superb leading by Winrow and an off day by Holmes saw Black Cats race into an early lead. Winrow took the mat up the rink and bowled short of the “T” to bowl about 28 metres and consistently placed his bowls around the jack. Northern Lights had no answer to Winrow’s play as with the help of his team mates, Black Cats ran out 17-6 winners. Both teams are now level at the top of the league table with Northern Lights having a superior points difference.

The big game in the Monday Afternoon Fours featured Well Bowled (Brian Winrow, Chris Dunwell, Gary Plane, Nick Blackburn) and the unbeaten Rascals ( Jean Wade, Ken Sharkey, Derek Squires, David Laycock). A fine team performance by Well Bowled, with Winrow again in top form saw his team hold a 10-3 advantage after 9 ends. Only skip Laycock for Rascals saved his team from a higher deficit.  At this point Rascals rallied as good bowls by Squires and Laycock saw them pull the score line back to 10-7. Well Bowled and Rascals both scored single shots at the last couple of ends as Well Bowled took the honours by 11 shots to 8.

There was one of the shocks of the season in Division 1 of the Tuesday Evening Pairs, when bottom of the table Pat & Pete (Pat and Peter Grant) beat leaders Little & Large (Steve Rothwell, John Beverley). Little & Large raced into an 4-0 lead before Pat & Pete scored a “2” to pull the score back to 4-2. The game continued in a “nip and tuck “ mode with the teams level at 6 shots each at the start of the last end. Excellent leading by Pat Grant had been a feature of the game. At the last end Pat & Pete were holding “2” with Beverley, the skip for Little & Large one bowl to play. He managed to save one shot as Pat & Pete completed  a  7-6 success and register  their best performance of the season.

Well done to Springers (June Barron, Sally Harrison, Avril Humberstone, Maywynne Denby) in Division 1 of the Wednesday Fours as a fine team performance saw them win their first game of the season with a 12-6 win over Hard Liners (Keith Owens, Brian Hoult, P. Owen, Tony James).

The club are now taking entries for the John Dunn Shield, a singles knock out competition and the Sheila Holbrook Pairs, a knock out pairs competition. Both competitions are played over an hour. The entry sheets are in the Indoor Bowling hall.
