THE Bowls England, West of England, unified Under-25 singles Bowls Championships, sponsored by Avon Sportsground Maintenance Ltd, were held at the Portishead Royal British Legion Bowling Club’s premises at the Lake Grounds, Portishead.

This was the inaugural competition, which was blessed with good weather and bowling of high quality. County president of Somerset, David Bendall, who marked the final, was there along with some of the other county presidents.

The players came from Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Worcestershire, Herefordshire, and should have included Gloucestershire, Warwickshire and Wiltshire and Mr Terry Phillips of Avon Sportsground was disappointed these latter counties were not represented.

The winner was Andrew Walters from Broadway in Worcestershire, a junior international skip, who beat Matt Hamilton from Ilminster 21-7.

Paul Davies, secretary of the RBL BC, was pleased with the event, which was run by its own members. He hoped that the sponsor would help to arrange this competition next year.
