Saturday saw Madeira’s new bowlers competing against each other for the Edwin Putt Trophy, writes Jenny Smith.
This competition is for bowlers with a maximum of two years’ experience.
Eighteen members took part in three matches of eight ends each and what a great competition it proved to be!
Hilary Bird, Pam Turff, Martin Holman and Graham Cottey won all three of their matches and so it came down to point difference to decide who would go through.
With plus 32 and plus 30 respectively it was Graham to play Martin in the final. Both played very well, but with Graham scoring a three and a four, it was difficult for Martin to catch up in a game of only eight ends so Graham is the well-deserved champion, winning 11-4.
Graham Cottey’s has made a great start to his bowling career having also won the Bert Webb Trophy, for first and second year bowlers at the end of the last indoor bowling season.
