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.

The Annual General Meeting will be held on Wednesday November 19th at Manor Road Bowling Club.

Federation of Crown Green Bowls, Individual Merit

Disappointingly, only 3 of our 8 entries to the Federation Individual Merit last Sunday at Blackburn, turned up to play in the event. After only 5 players (out of 9 entries) turned up to play in the Over 60's Merit at Owley Wood last month, the Executive Committee will discuss future participation in these events at our next meeting in a fortnight. As newcomers to the Federation this year and therefore looking to show support to all their competitions, the decisions made by the players who failed to appear showed a lack of respect for not only the hard working organisers of the two competitions but also to myself personally for the amount of work put in regarding the entries for both competitions. Only last Monday one of the entrants virtually begged me to include him in the draw instead of the unfortunate Chris Barton, who is, thankfully recovering well from his recent operation. Lo and behold, after me making the effort to get him into the competition, that person did not turn up on Sunday, nor did he have the decency to inform me about his intentions not to turn up. Thank you to Brian Leonard, who reached the Quarter Finals, Jamie Box and Brian Somerville for attending on Sunday. In total we entered 17 players in the two events at a cost of 125, money which was raised with the entry fees to our qualifying event for last Sunday's Merit and 70 of that money was completely wasted by the no show's.

                           

                               Brian Somerville telling his opponent 'that's my favourite mark'                            A very stylish Brian Leonard, hope he's not bowling at the wrong jack?       Surely Jamie Box is not ashamed to show his Tranmere colours in Blackburn?

Federation of Crown Green Bowls, Individual Merit

The above Competition takes place this coming Sunday, September 21st at Roe Lee Park, Blackburn, BB1 9RP starting at 9-30am, scratch 10-30am. Wallasey have  eight players taking part and their respective draw details can be seen below. Winner 200, Runner Up 100, Semi Finalists 2 x 50, Last Eight 4 x 25.  Refreshments available all day. Good luck to all our players taking part on Sunday. Please ring the Federation Secretary, David Kay on 07860 358283 before 09-30am Sunday, if you cannot attend on the day. Out of 9 Wallasey Entries into the Over 60's Merit there were only 5 who turned up. 2 players did not let us know before the scratch time. This makes running the event very difficult for the organiser.

West Kirby Vics win Pairs League Division One & Wallasey RBL 'A' win Division Two

West Kirby Victoria defeated Hoylake Central 'A' 7-0 last night to win Division One of the 2014 Pairs League. Going into the match needing 5 points, a clean sweep of winners saw the Vics claim the top spot by 3 points over New Brighton Queens Royal who finished in second place. The other match at Hoylake last night saw Hoylake Central 'B' defeat Sandridge 5-2 but having needed 6 points to win Division Two, they could only finish level on points with the Wallasey RBL 'A' team who take the title virtue of their superior aggregate score over the season. Congratulations go to West Kirby Victoria and Wallasey RBL 'A' on winning their respective divisions.

Paul's long wait for Festival Trophy is finally over.

Paul Saville finally got his hands on the Wallasey Festival Trophy yesterday after a 21-16 victory over our 2014 Federation Merit Holder, Ray Lynch, on an excellent Bronze green at Central Park. Paul has been trying to win this trophy since 1982 and on a lovely sunny day in Wallasey, his win yesterday saw him add the wonderful trophy to his haul of wins in Wallasey competitions. Paul had already won the Wallasey Individual Merit twice, 1994 and 2011, the Wallasey Federation/British Parks Merit twice, 1998 and 2010 and the Tom Bassnett Pairs Trophy twice, 1989 and 2001 with Dave Bromley and Ian Johnstone as his playing partners. Yesterdays competition attracted 20 competitors to Central Park and Paul had earlier defeated Barbara McBurney 21-08, Linda Mitchell 21-14 and also had the nerve to beat his Mum, Mo Saville 21-19 after being 11-19 down. Paul then beat Mark Bunting 21-16 in his semi-final match. In the Final against Ray, Paul built up a crucial early 11-06 advantage before Ray fought back to 16-19 but 2 singles finally brought an end to Paul's 32 year wait to get his hands on the Wallasey Festival Trophy. Ray Lynch had earlier defeated Chris Morrison 21-17, Nicky Gilmore 21-13 and Peter Dodd 21-17 in his semi final match to reach the Final. Association Chairman Mike Costall, thanked Terry Fanning from the Bronze Bowling Club for once again providing welcome hospitality all day at Central Park and Keith Etches for his usual excellent organisation of the event. He thanked all the competitors for entering the competition and all the players who had marked cards and stayed to the end to support the players in the Final.  He thanked all the measurers on the day, with the one and only Kenny Palin, there from start to finish again, leading the way.  Paul's victory brought the curtain down on our Individual competitions for 2014 and hopefully 2015 will see more members taking part in them. We definitely saw an increase in competitors this year for our events and given good weather conditions next year there is no reason why this trend should not continue.

National League Division Five

17-15 victory for Wallasey against East Lancs not enough to win Division Five Title

Even though our Wallasey teams defeated East Lancs by 17 points to 15 yesterday, this was not enough to secure the Division Five Title as Colne Valley defeated wooden spoonist's Preston 'A' by 26-06 in their match. Colne Valley finished  top with 85 points with Wallasey second on 79 points. Despite five single figure victories in the home leg at Harrison Park No. 3 green, Craig Saville 21-06, Les Henderson 21-06, Colin Saville 21-06, John Cosgrove 21-08 and Anthony Thompson 21-06 and a 10-04 points win in the leg, unfortunately we could only manage three away winners at the huge away green at East Lancs Cricket Club. Frank O'Neill 21-20, Paul Saville 21-16 and Bill Atkinson 21-14 were the away winners for Wallasey on the day but even though every away player got into double figures, thereby helping us to claim the 4 extra aggregate points available in the two legs, we just didn't have enough winners on the day to take the title. Personally I feel that having beaten Colne Valley in July we have to look at our first match of the season against Mon Menai for the probable reason as to why we did not finish top of the group. With only 11 winners in that match, 6 home and 5 away, it was a bad start for us to lose against the Welsh team and despite winning the next 3 matches we really did not recover from that early season set back. I would like to thank the supporters who have travelled to the away matches especially Mo and Walter Saville and Sue O'Neill as without their help marking, sometimes as many as 3 cards a match, it would have been very difficult for the players just to concentrate on playing their games. It was disappointing not to win Division Five but we will be promoted to Division Four next year and all the players should be congratulated for their efforts, along with all the committee members who gave up their time to attend the home matches and thanks go to Sylvia Costall for preparing the buffets at each home match.
