In a brilliant climax to the season, the underdog - Madeira Ladies - sprang an upset by winning the Grace Mathews Topclub against the Torquay Kings on Sunday afternoon, writes Mary Ann Dowrick.

Earlier in the day Madeira had advanced to the final by winning three of the five disciplines in a semi-final against South Molton. Meanwhile hot favourites Torquay Kings were defeating a strong Newton Abbot team to gain their place in the final.

The stage was set for thrilling final in a competition near and dear to the hearts of Madeira, as Grace Mathews for whom it was named was a long time Exmouth Madeira member and supporter.

In a nail biting finish, showing never say die spirit, Madeira took the honours literally on the last wood and amidst great excitement, the ladies were crowned County champions of the Grace Mathews Topclub 2012. Grace would have been proud!

In a friendly against Phear Park, Madeira managed two wins and a draw. Skip V Allam with Pat Harris and Margaret Whittle 24-16; Skip Veda Bevan with Jill Perrin and Josie Glaister 28-9; and Skip Jean Rainton with Nikki Fiddimore and Brenda Marks 16-16.

Don’t forget to tell your friends about the Open Day for new bowlers which takes place at Madeira this coming Saturday (September 8) from 10am to 3 pm.

And finally, best of luck to our ladies competing in the County finals on September 9. Pat Harris and Annette Flockhart in the over 70’s and Sue Harriot with Liz Smerdon and Christine Macaulay in the two-wood triples.
