Leeton Soldiers Club Men
The major minor pairs wrapped up in somewhat inclement weather at the Leeton Soldiers Club on the weekend.
In the semi-finals, played on Saturday, Dennis Dean and Ashley McAliece defeated Greg Caffery and Peter Evans. Mark Vogel and Larry Harrison defeated Leo Plant and David Noad in the other match.
The Vogel and Harrison combination proved too strong for Dean and McAliece in Sunday’s final, going on to win the title.
The Soldiers Club will host the Keith Farley Shield, which is currently held by Leeton, this Sunday.
Leeton Soldiers Women
The Leeton Soldiers women arrived at bowls last Wednesday to find the seats covered in ice, so there was an extra job for the greenkeeper to get them ready for the ladies to sit on.
Lovely weather normally follows such a heavy frost, but unfortunately this wasn’t the case. The day turned out to be bitterly cold, resulting in some players departing early.
Winners were D. Colyer, C.Harrison, M.McKenzie. Runners up: L.Noble and B.Howard.
Entries are being taken for the singles championship, with the first round to start August 1. Please make sure your name is in.
