LAST Saturday, September 28th, Coleraine Bowling Club hosted a successful finals day to bring the curtain down on the outdoor season at Lodge Road.
It was an early start for the Jamison Triples final as Dallas senior and junior went into battle with their respective triples. It was former international, Victor who came out on top, defeating his son and team captain, Jordan. Victor along with Jim Duncan and Stephen Brewster defeated Jonny Vauls, Peter Irwin and Jordan 21-8 to leave Jordan’s triple runners up for a second year in succession.
It turned out to be a great day for Stephen Brewster as he guided his partner Mark Mason to victory in the Lamont Pairs, defeating Mark Broderick and Keith McGillivray 18-11 to retain the trophy they had won last year.
Keith did get himself on the winning rostrum when he defeated the greenkeeper, Ronnie Rosborough, 21-7 in the final of the Ross (Novice) Cup. In the Bank of Ireland Cup for over 60s, Liam Hickey and Neville Lamont had a close game before Liam eventually ran out a 21-17 victor, on what was a proud moment in his year of presidency. Jonny Calvin lifted the Baird Cup having defeated Keith McGillivray 21-15 after a tight battle. The Barrie Cup went to Jimmy O’Neill following a 21-8 victory over Willie McKay and the Martin Cup, which is played for on the day, was won by Jonny Vauls and Millie Elder after they defeated Albert Kirk and Basil Kennedy 10-3 in the final.
Jonny Calvin defeated Tony Blair 21-9 in the final of the Championship of the Green to lift the famous old shield. It was a miserable week for Jordan Dallas as he fell to defeat in the final of the McMaster Pairs with Stephen Brewster, losing 19-7 to Willie Harbison and Liam Hickey. The September Triples was won by Albert Kirk and the Fulton Cup for rinks night was won by Joe Austin.
