Nailsea Bowls Club held their annual open tournament with a foursome from the host club defeated in the final.

UNDER a perfect blue summer sky, the annual Nailsea Bowls Club open tournament was keenly played out from 80 bowlers from Buckinghamshire to Ystrad Mynach in Wales.

It was one of four Welsh sides called Eagles that led the way throughout the day, but unfortunately lost the last round of the day so they only made the third/fourth play-off which they won my a narrow margin.

The main final for the Super Green trophy was between a mixed Chew Stoke and Nailsea team called Kingfishers and an all-Nailsea side named Jet Streams.

Doreen and John Keel from Chew Stoke and Pam and Roy MacLaren played well and won the final by eight shots, leaving the local side of Graham White, Derek Clark, Anthony Freeman and Brian Holloway as runners-up.
