Double success for Wymondham Short Mat Bowls Club

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.
