THERE was some excellent bowling on a good running green when Eastfield Bowling Club held its Over-60s Pairs Merit competition in fine weather last Friday.
The event, run by Ian Hadden and Ann Ridge, was sponsored by Marshall Honda of Seamer Road.
In the quarter-finals Jean and David Roscoe (Bridlington Bay) beat Jeff Heaton and Ernie Pearce (Hunmanby) 21-14, Phil Todd and Peter Richards (Hunmanby) beat Dave Clark and Alan Bambrook (Dukes Park) 21-15, Mary Tyson (North Cliff) and Bob Davies (Borough) beat Westgate’s Terry Firth and Dave Sissons 21-15, and Tony Bland and Mick Gates (both Borough) beat Mike Tyson (N Cliff) and Tom Mottram (Whitby) 21-11.
Progressing to the final were Todd and Richards with a 21-20 defeat of the Roscoes and Bland and Gates with a 21-12 success against Tyson and Davies. Todd and Richards then played consistently well to take the final 21-13.
