After a traumatic
wait for all involved the final outcomes of the ladies, gents
and Riviera Mixed Triples teams are now known.
The Ladies have done
exceedingly well winning promotion for the second successive
season. This time they go up as Champions of Division
5 of the Gallery League.
It was a long wait
to see the final outcome as weather had disrupted the league
programme and some other teams in the division had to complete
their fixtures before the finishing positions were known.
But all was well in the end.
from all at the Club go to all who played this season
and helped toward this successful result for the season
The Riviera Mixed
Triples team also should be congratulated for winning their
league again. This was a different situation to
their Ladies in that it was BSM who had to plough through
a backlog of fixtures before being able to lay claim to the
league championship. All did not go quite plan as Brixham
Bowling Club gained a convincing win. Taking all 10 points
in the game away at Brixham. However the compliment
was returned in the rearranged fixture at St Mary's when BSM took
all 10 points.
The 'must win' game
was at home against Victoria. With wins on two
out of the three rinks 8 of the 10 points were taken and the
Results (BSM Skips first):
Versus Brixham away:
C Hall 11
A N Other
41 shots Brixham
Versus Brixham at home:
J Heard 17
BSM 79 Brixham
Versus Victoria at home:
J Huff 14
G Hewer 25
Again sincere congratulations from all at the Club must
go to all involved this season.
The bad news is
that the efforts of the BSM Men's Mid Devon League team were
in vain. They will be playing in Division 3 of the MDL
next year. A poor start and finish to the season sealed
their fate and relegation became almost a certainty as the
BSM season ended still short of enough points to ensure
Sorry lads just not good enough was it ! As they say
there is always next year.
The Over 55s completed
the season in a respectable place in their division.
I am sure that better things are to come from this team
in the future.
All of the club
finals have now been played. A lot of them had
to be rearranged due to one finals day was completely washed
