Tewkesbury Bowling Club, county champions.

In weather more akin to April, Tewkesbury came away from Barnwood on Sunday with the County Cup, the last time it was in our hands was 2003.

In the morning semi final they were comfortable winners over Bristol Greenbank. 69-56.

Ivan Robins, Dave Moss, Stewart Minchew & Paul Keicher 6-10 down after 12 ends, fought back to win 24-17.

Rob Arthur, Dave Boulton, Dave Minchew & Frank Hannigan's game was close all the way through and they only lost on the last end 17-19.

Rod Trower, Colin Campbell, Craig Guthrie & Eddie Kavanagh, despite dropping a seven on the 9th end ran out comfortable winners 28-20.


Their opponents in the final were Victory Park who had beaten home favourites Barnwood in the other semi final.

Paul Keicher’s rink playing the experienced Tim Webb were 3-10 down after 9 ends. They fought back to lead 11-10 at 13, but finally went down by ten shots. 13-23.

Eddie Kavanagh’s four playing John Tombs struggled after lunch and were 10-13 down at 14 ends. But after winning six of the last seven ends came away with a seven shot win. 21-14.

Frank Hannigan’s four, now the only rink left on the green started the last end 19-14 to the good. And after some excellent bowls from all four players Victory Park could only manage to pick up one shot giving Tewkesbury victory by the narrowest of margins.

Tewkesbury 53  Victory Park 52.

A big thank you from all the squad who played over the campaign, to all who came along to support during those matches.
