The Men’s Junior Club Pairs was competed for on Saturday.
We only had four teams competing but they were four strong and even teams.
The competition was played as a round robin and after two rounds each team had one win and one loss.
So it all came down to the differential for the last game.
Fata Letoa and Allan Langley won their last match beating David Payne and Ron Horne by 5 taking them to a +4 differential.
Alan Daniels and Mike Wilkinson needed a big win over Tony James and Neil Buckner as they had a -4 differential.
Tony and Neil only needed to win by one as they had a +4 differential.
It all came down to the last bowl of Tony James, with Alan and Mike holding two shots and a 9 point lead, Tony ran the head picked up the jack, it dribbled past his two catchers and on to Mikes back bowl. This gave Mike and Alan the Win and a +6 differential to claim the Title.
Mike took all the credit with him having his back bowl suitably placed.
Congratulations to Alan Daniels and Mike Wilkinson Junior 1-5 Pairs Champs.
Runners-up were Fata Letoa and Allan Langley.
The competition was played in an excellent spirit and was very competitive.
