IMPORTANT NEWS ABOUT WALLASEY WEBSITE AND NEW RESULTS SERVICE

For all Association members who like to keep records of their own and their teams performances during the season, I can now inform you that we have now adopted the Crown Green Bowling Results Service

 operated by Mb Bowling results and currently used by the Birkenhead Evening and Afternoon Leagues, the Bebington & District League and the North Wirral League.

For all the Wallasey results, match sheets, Individual & Team Averages please enter into your web browser    http://bowlingresults.co.uk/wallasey/  where you will be able to access a mine of information.

You can also see this website at that address so it is worthwhile book marking the site once you access it.

My thanks go to Mike Beckett for all his help in setting up this excellent results service and for his speedy response to all my requests for help.

Amazing turnaround sees New Brighton Quarry Vikings 'C' win the Association Cup Final

Last night's Association Cup Final produced an amazing match between the Division Three leaders Great Meols and the team currently lying in 10th and last position in the table, New Brighton Quarry Vikings 'C' team. On a magnificent green at Manor Road Bowling Club but on an eventually bitterly cold evening, Great Meols started like the red hot favourites their position as League leaders merited. The first 6 winners off the green all belonged to Great Meols, including 21-06, 21-07 and 21-08 wins for Gerry Byrne, Tommy Bentley and Dave Evans respectively. Combining those victories with Mark Gillam's 21-13, Ray Farrell's 21-14 and Bill Gray's 21-16 winning scores, favourite backers were seen nipping off to Ladbrokes to collect their winnings. At this halfway stage not only had Great Meols pulled back their 48 shots given to the Vikings by the handicappers but they had forged a 126-112 lead with the prospects of more to come. When Ian McKillop came off the green as the Vikings first winner with a 21-6 victory, still nobody watching could quite believe anything other than a Great Meols victory would be the final outcome. Rodney Watkins with a 21-14  win and then a truly superb display by young Ryan Kearney in winning 21-08 started to put belief into the Vikings team and when Colette Cant finally posted a 21-20 victory after a marathon match, Great Meols were suddenly in danger of throwing the Cup away. The experienced Charlie Ward then produced a crucial 21-10 victory to put the New Brighton Quarry Vikings team in control and it was left to Val Box, with another marathon 21-20 win for the Vikings to seal a remarkable win for her team. This match was played in a tremendous spirit by both sides and New Brighton Quarry Vikings victory, even though slightly unexpected after 6 blocks, was thoroughly deserved because of the never say die attitude of their players. Young Ryan Kearney strode round the green as if he had played in Cup Finals everyday of the week and I think his win was the crucial victory on the night. Association Chairman Mike Costall, presented the Cup to New Brighton Quarry 'C' team Captain, Rodney Watkins and thanked the Manor Road Club for allowing us to use their excellent facilities, the Referee Mr. Peter Fishwick, the measurers and markers and Mary Fishwick for conducting our raffle. Thanks also went to our Competition Secretary Keith Etches for organising the competition.

Treble and Double for Paul Saville as he wins Wallasey Individual Merit

New Brighton Queens Royal's Paul Saville won his third Wallasey Individual Merit Title today by beating Harrison Park's Tommy Davis 21-17 in an excellent Final. Paul's third Merit win comes 21 years after his first victory in 1994 and just 4 years after his 2011 win. Paul also completed the double today by combining his Individual Merit Trophy with the Wallasey Festival Trophy he won last season. Paul bowled really well all day beating Bill Atkinson 21-19 in a very close Preliminary Round match and then two 21-11 wins against Anita Richardson and Brian Somerville in his First and Second Round matches saw him power into a Semi Final against Chris Barton. Another convincing performance against Chris took him into his fifth and final match of the day against Tommy Davis. Tommy had surprised us all day long with his consistently accurate long bowling and he deservedly progressed to the Final after defeating Sue Nugent 21-15, Owen Doyle 21-03 and Eddie Dutton 21-19 in a terrific semi final match. Paul took an early 8-4 lead in the Final and increased it to 13-6 and 16-9 before a great fight back from Tommy had the score at just 17-16 in Paul's favour. Paul then took four singles to Tommy's one to finally clinch the title and claim his third Wallasey Individual Merit victory. Our thanks go to Harrison Park Bowling Club for allowing us to use their facilities all day and to all the markers throughout a long day. Special thanks go to Tapeman Ken Palin, who not only did the measuring all day but combined this with marking cards and washing the cups in the kitchen. Kenny is a tremendous supporter of Wallasey bowls and we would be lost without his help in these competitions.
