Double success for Wymondham Short Mat Bowls Club

PUBLISHED: 18:09 14 March 2012

SHORT-MAT BOWLS: Wymondham Short Mat Bowls Club enjoyed double success in winning the singles and triples titles at the Dennis Moore Tournaments at Hingham. Chris Mann beat Watton 17-3, Connaught A 8-4, Banham 14-2 and a narrow defeat by Harling 7-8, but shot difference was enough to see him pick up his second singles title. Pat Saunders, Jack Barrett and Debbie Phillips romped to four big wins in their group – of 15-8, 13-4, 11-3 and 12-5. In the final they played Connaught A, who also won their four group games. A close contest looked to be on the cards but the Wymondham trio had other ideas and cruised to a 13-5 win. In the Breckland League Wymondham had two impressive wins to close in on their third straight league title. They beat Hingham Yellow 10-0 (93-40) where R Steele, M Barker and B Saunders picked up a massive 32-6 win and Banham 10-0 (103-35) as B Barker, J Barrett and D Phillips put in a strong 29-10 win.
