The Annual Under 21 Pairs Competition was held at Devizes BC on Saturday 5th July. There were 6 pairs entered – a little depleted owing to the success of some of the youngsters who were selected to play in the Johns / Middleton games which were also played on this day.
The rules stipulate that one of the pair must be Under 16 so this gives the newer and younger bowlers an opportunity to play with the older, more experienced players.
There was some very good bowling from all the competitors, but a special mention must be made of our very Junior pair, Frankie Stinchcombe and Hayden Daniell, and Martha Baker who was playing in only her second ever real game. Hopefully these new bowlers will continue to develop over the next few seasons.
The Pairs played 5 games of 4 ends with 4 bowls and the two top Pairs at the end of this were Mike Titcombe & Jake Webster – who are the current Title holders – and Charlotte & Maisie Daniell. These Pairs will play in the Final at Bowls Wiltshire Finals Weekend – also at Devizes – on 6th/7th September.
With thanks to Devizes BC for hosting this event and to John & Marian Menzies for running it on the day.
