Pair clinch Overthorpe bowls prize

Rob Dunford and Scott Fisher won Overthorpe Sports Club’s Member and Guest Competition and with it the £250 prize money, defeating Alex Wolfenden and Ross Ingham 21-18 in a keenly-contested final. 

The early stages were nip and tuck before Wolfenden and Ingham stretched the lead to 18-13 before a change of lead to Dunford resulted in them running out with a controlled fightback over the last five ends.

Wolfenden and Ingham had earlier defeated Karen Mayfield and Joe Bray 21-9, Pauline Ratcliffe and Ryan Mitchell 21-8 and 2013 winners Thomas Codman and Robbie Fitzgerald 21-13 in the semi-final.

Dunford and Fisher saw off Andy Wood and Lillian Gray 21-11, before beating Matty Hollingworth and Richard Boltwood 21-8.

The game of the day was undoubtably Phil Berry and Gary Dawson defeating Tony Hammond and Phil’s wife Jenny 21-20 in an absorbing contest which saw Jenny lead well throughout, but a superb fightback saw Phil and Gary home by the narrowest of margins.
