Shotley Rose Bowls Club is continuing to have an excellent season and, like so many others, is enjoying the glorious weather. Their Wednesday team, playing in Division 4 of the Ipswich and District Triples, is currently sitting top of the league with a number of good wins under its belt but with other clubs still breathing down their necks. Their Monday team has slipped from top spot, but is still comfortably in the top half of the table. These are terrific positions considering their promotion to both leagues last year.
Shotley Rose Bowls club has held its own pairs competition which was a thrilling event on a lovely warm evening. Very fittingly the club’s chairman, Mr Bill Sarchet, beat all comers to be victorious.
Simon Whitney said,
I am too modest to say who his partner was. In the county cup competitions club members have been successful although not moving on due to some obstructions from bigger clubs over the times to play fixtures. That is a regular frustration for smaller village bowls clubs.
Finally, the club joined Shotley Football Club and the Shotley Rose Public House in hosting Shotley Fun Day on Saturday 8th July. This was a wonderful event with lots of stalls, activities, a car boot, bouncy castle, football games, dancing and much more. Although it is early days to know how much money was raised for the two clubs, it is somewhere near the £2,000 mark. Shotley Bowls Club would like to convey their thanks to all who attended and especially Sarah, at the Shotley Rose Public House, for her support.
Shotley Rose Bowls Club would welcome new players to assist in securing the future success of the club.
