Gloucester Bowling Club
Thursday bowls saw thirty players competing for the prize money with some very close games played. Winners were John Andrews, Terry Carson, Bob Charman. They say be wary of an injured player and Bob proved just that.
Saturday winners were Jean Holstein, Judy Sheely and the ever improving Alec Laurie over Joan Ridgeway, Joe Holstein, Di Lockwood.
Saturday pennants resulted in a 9-1 win for grade three with the Cassidy kids winning, Col Linton's skipped his team to victory and Col Hebby's team lost on the last end.
The number six players travelled to Harrington and had a 10-0 win over their much fancied opponents.
Kevin Everett's team jumped away to a 9-0 lead before the opposition hit back to narrow the margin but still went down 31-13. The Terry Higgins led team had a convincing win 21-15 with new lead Clive Redman leading the way setting up most ends which took the pressure off the other players.
Kevin Burley's boys were shaky with their lead straying bowls in the early ends but once Aaron Kelly at number three settled the nerves they took control to win 29-24.
Next Saturday both teams are away with number three side playing Tuncurry Beach at Forster due to green problems and the number six side make the journey to Taree West.
Many thanks to Jenny Wilson for organising the high tea when pennant teams are at home.

Grade 4 Pennants
This year the ladies are fielding one team in Grade 4. Last Wednesday was their first match against Forster, at home. Jill Everett's team, including Bev Murray, Di Pritchard and Judy Sheely, won 20-17, and Jean Holstein's team, including Kerrie Green, Del Buckton and Lorraine Radcliffe, won 22-13. This gave an overall score of 5-0 to Gloucester. On Friday, the pennants' team played against Harrington at home. Again, they had a good win, with a score of 5-0. Well done to everyone, it was a great team effort.
Next week, the teams play Wingham away on Tuesday and Old Bar, at home, on Wednesday. Let's hope they have a successful score again.
