The Monday Afternoon Fours in Halifax Bowling Club’s Autumn leagues saw an action packed afternoon with the top teams in opposition.

Rascals (Jean wade, Ken Sharkey, Derek Squires, David Laycock) were given a “master class” in leading by Peter Richardson the lead player for Luddites (Richardson, Stuart Gill, David Illingworth, Ray Wolsey). Luddites turned a 7-5 deficit into a 11-7 advantage, before rascals fought back with a “3” to make the score 11-10 moving into the final end. A Superb bowl by Gill, the number 2 player for Luddites proved “shot” as after a measure Luddites claimed a single to win the game by 12 shots to 10.

K.9’s ( Marian Quick, Eric Grant, Stuart Baker, Barry Wright) and Rabbits (Con McGinley, Derek Finch, Newman Hawley, Jack Orley) played out a “nip and tuck” game with K.9’s taking the game by 14 shots to 9.

The top game of the day featured Well Bowled (Brian Winrow, Gary Plane, Steve Dunwell, Nick Blackburn) and G. 2 + A. 2 (Barbara Gee, Jimmy Bainbridge, Alan Fleming, David Gee).  G. 2 + A. 2 raced into an 8-0 lead with excellent lead play by Barbara Gee and well supported by her team mates.  Well Bowled fought back with their” skip “Blackburn in impressive form as he continually saved shots for his team and bowled in for winners. Well Bowled pulled the score line back to 12-10 at the start of the last end. Winrow’s “jack high” leads were beaten by Barbara Gee who ran the jack for “shot”. Bainbridge bowled in another shot for G.  2 + A. 2 to hold a “2”, with only Blackburn to play. With his first bowl he bowled in for “shot” before David Gee, the skip for G. 2 + A. 2 played an impressive “jack high” bowl for “shot”. Playing to Winrow’s instructions Blackburn sent up his final bowl which ran the jack onto his teams back bowls to hold  a “2”. Gee on his backhand had excellent land but just ran through for Well Bowled to score a draw at 12 shots each, thanks to the actions of Blackburn.

There were unexpected results in Division 1 of the Wednesday Fours when two of the top teams, Illingworth (Marian Quick Ken Sharkey, Stuart Baker, David laycock) and Northern Lights (Les Holmes, Steve Rothwell, John Beverley) both registered defeats.

Endeavour (John Hamer, Pam Robinson,, Jimmy Bainbridge, Barbara Gee) went into an early lead in their game against Illingworth as a fine team performance saw them win by 12 shots to 4.

Hard Liners (Mick Cowley, Brian Hoult, Phil Owen, Tony James) kept their nerve against a three man Northern Lights. As excellent “skip” play by James saw Hard Liners to a narrow 10-9 victory. Northern Lights, with Holmes leading superbly won the game 12-9 but had to lose a quarter of their score as they only had three players. Their number 1 and 2 players played with 3 bowls each.

There is a Monday morning session from 11.00 a.m.- 12 noon for anyone wishing to have a “taster session” of indoor bowling.
There is Social Bowling at 11.30 -.1.00 pm on a Thursday and 2.30 p.m. on a Saturday for anyone who would like a game.
