2022 Competition Finals
St Saviour bowls club members enjoyed a memorable weekend of excellent finals which for the first time were being played on our new surface. With nearly 40 members involved there was a diverse field spread over the 18 events. The sun tried its best to come out, but a chilly wind kept some players wrapped up, and many spectators chose to view from the clubhouse.
Lindsey Greechan dominated in her 5 finals often showing her quality with excellent shots and consistency. It will be interesting to see if her first Championship title is the start of a new era in the club. She added the ladies handicap title by beating her mother Gina le Long, the ladies 2 wood against Liz Simon and then beat Rupert Huelin in the mixed 2 wood before partnering Rupert to win the mixed select pairs.
Rupert added a second win in an awfully close novice men’s final just beating Gary Westwood. Christine Joshua took the ladies novice beating Stephanie Parrott.
The men’s championship was won by Dave Black. Dave overcame first time finalist Mark le Cornu 21-19 in a tight match to pick up his third title in 4 years having lost in the 2021 final, a record that shows his consistency. He went on to win the Ladies choice pairs with Carol le Goff seeing off Anne Richardson and Brian Bisson.
Last year’s men’s champion Michael Rive ended his highly successful season with a win in the men’s handicap plus winning the select pairs with new member Guy Walton.
