London Welsh Bowling Association - 27th April, 2022

A very enjoyable 6 rink game with some 60 members of the London Welsh Bowling Association in attendance on the day .  The game itself was played in an excellent competitive spirit which was also helped by the good weather and the green which was running exceptionally well for the time of year.  This also showed in the good quality bowling on show with the final score favouring the visitors 95 - 92. 

The game was followed by refreshments in the pavilion with members of London Welsh also providing some entertainment with their singing of some Welsh classics. Everyone present had a good time and friendships were made.

Josh Hancock won the Llanelli League’s prestigious Harold Williams Under 35 Singles Tournament.  Well done Josh onwards and upwards in 2022

 

 

Unfortunately, the Ladies Section could not compete in the Dinefwr Ladies League due to the League being postponed until 2022.  However some of the Ladies were able to play in some of the Men's section 's Llanelli League and Private greens fixtures during the season

In the final, they romped home to victory over a rink from Mid Wales, winning with  a few ends spare.

Outside the league. The club also had a good season in the cup competitions.

In the Private greens. The Pairs and Triples reached the final missing out on the day by a few shots.

However. Colin Davies, Martyn Harries and Colin Smith faired better winning the over 60s county triples.

They were helped by Nigel George in the over 60s fours to do the double.
