Brilliant Ladies’ Bowls Final

Resolven Ladies’ Bowls Club Championship Final, played this week, was a gripping affair and worthy of a slot on Match of the Day T.V. Christine Twaite, 7 times winner of the title faced Ceri Holmes, a beginner who only picked up a bowl for the first time last year. Chris had already beaten Ceri in the 3 Woods Final, but picking up the Rose Bowl as winner of the Club Championship is the ultimate accolade.

The game was superb-hardly a loose bowl from either player. Ceri was on 18 shots (only 3 away from winning the match), when Chris using intelligent tactics, moved the mat up the green and started a great fight back.  Ceri was stuck on 18 with Chris gaining on her and spectators were muttering “anyone’s game”, when Ceri took an end, put up a long jack and won the game. What a Final!

Congratulations to both bowlers, who not only played excellent bowls but also played in the real spirit of the game..

Also congratulations to Carwen Thomas who kept a cool and impartial head and did a great job marking the game, particularly since Ceri is her daughter!
