Finals ~ Monday 21st August 2017 At 11.00 a.m.at Tanworth in Arden B.C.

With the forecast of rain, the finals got off to an early start with Ron Regan(Moseley C.C.) beating Ken Harvey(Maggies) to 5 and Stevan Green (College AG) beating Kirk Wright (White Hart) 21 - 12.

The Final was a close fought match with Stevan looking to have the advantage at 20 - 18 but Ron pulled one out of the bag to tie the match at 20 - 20 but Ron made the best of a final loose end to take the Title.

Chris Bird thanked Tanworth for the use of their green and yours truly for running the event before presenting the trophy to Ron.

Well done to all involved, the standard of bowling was superb throughout the evening. Congratulations to Jamie and Russell who successfully defended the title which they won last year at Hall Green BC. Also well done to Lee and Roger who bowled superbly well throughout the night, the final could have gone either way and it was fitting that the final was decided on the very last end of the night, with the light fading fast the final just about got completed.

Many Thanks to Colebrook BC, for staging the event and also thank you to those who supported on the night
