LAWN BOWLS ISLE OF MAN
The Junior Championships finals were eventually held last weekend following the wash out from a couple of weeks ago. The quality bowls played by our juniors was excellent, which made the event a competitive one.
Five juniors started the competition with the top two playing off against one another in a final. Pictured left to right are Jamie Gibson and John Long. Thoughts around the green were that it could have been a year to remember! After six attempts, life member Eric Maddocks became this years men’s champion. Jamie is Eric’s grandson, and it would have been very fitting to have a first time grandfather/grandson champion pairing. However, it wasn’t meant to be as John, who was the defending champion himself had a lot to play for. His own determination saw him overcome the challenger to claim his second junior championship. Well done to all our juniors, and congratulations John.
