President Pairs
The Finals night was staged at Wythall C.A. on Monday July 9th, with 4 pairs managing to get through to finals night. The first of the 2 semi finals was between Tony Toal/Rob Fall from Woodbourne who were taking on Graham Savage/Mike Reade from Woodbourne and Henley.  This match was nip and tuck with Graham and Mike leading 14-2, Tony and Rob then started to find the weight with the jack and they led near the end at 20-16, Graham and Mike levelled the match at 20 across and with Tony and Rob lying the one shot they needed, Graham came up with a toucher with the very last bowl of the match to  book his and Mike's place in the final.  The other semi final saw Charlie & James Heesom from Henley taking on Paul Norris & Phil Cushin from KNEX.  This match was similar to the other semi final as Charlie & James raced into a decent lead at the start as Paul & Phil struggled to get the weight of the green but in the second half of the match they bowled well before losing out 21-15 to the Henley pair.
So the final saw Graham and Mike taking on Charlie & James, the match was close at the start but Graham and Mike continued their fine form in their semi final and slowly but surely started to play the green very well and Charlie and James struggled to find it. Graham and Mike would eventually win the final 21-10 and be crowned 2018 HOE Doubles Merit winners.  Commiserations to Charlie & James on just missing out in the final.
Many Thanks to Phil Richardson and the members at Wythall C.A.for allowing us to use their green and facilities, it's very much appreciated !!
