End of Season Report
Here we are at the end of what can only be described as a very interesting season for Messingham Bowls Club. No-one expected the summer that we have had, In twenty years of bowling it has been the best I can remember, probably in recent times only matched by 1976. But all the hot weather has its down side, with the bowling green or more like the brown scorched bowling green crying out for water so at the height of the hot spell we were having to water it three times a night. All the hard work of watering, cutting, spiking, and scarifying paid off with some very positive comments from visiting teams throughout the season.
18th August saw the club hold our semi-finals and final of the Sunday Drives, the competition runs every Sunday throughout the season with each Sundays shots total accumulating to a final total at the end of the season with the top four scores playing in the semi and final. In the final this year were Terry Stocks and Graham Clarke, with Graham running out a worthy winner.
The club has several internal competitions running through the season with singles finals day on 8th September.
Final results are shown on the Internal Competitions page.
The club has had one of its best bowling seasons for a long, long time with our Division 2 team gaining promotion into Division 1 and also our Division 4 teams gaining promotion into division 3. Our team in Division 3 just missing out on promotion by four points and finishing third in the league.
Next season the club will be entering various men's and ladies County Competitions with the hope that we can build on this season's success.
