Borough BC’s singles merit competition on Sunday attracted 37 players who were delayed in getting into action by a frosty surface.

Once play was under way, however, there was some excellent bowling.

In the quarter-finals Geoff Watson (Whitby) beat A Webb 21-16, David Lowe (Dukes Park) beat Kevin Gates (Whitby) 21-19, Alan Landers (Whitby) beat Mick Gates (Borough) 21-17 and Phil Todd (Hunmanby) beat Robert Child (Nodth Cliff) 21-14.

Moving into the final were Lowe, with a 21-19 defeat of Watson and Landers 21-15 against Todd. Lowe beat Landers 21-17 in the final.

A tea-and-biscuits consolation event for early losers saw Kenny Wale (Whitby) and Colin Burns (North Cliff) win through to the final which Wale won 21-19.

On Sunday, 9.30am start, there is a singles merit at Hunmanby BC.

Following the crown green association’s AGM and a request from some individuals it was suggested that the Friday Night Individual League for 2014 be played on one of the Gambart Baines Greens.

At present only a handful of entries have been received and the league is in danger of not going ahead.

Competitions secretary Jackie Stapleton is asking that anyone who is interested in playing to submit their entry form to her as soon as possible.

The entry fee of £5 should also be submitted, and this will either go to the Scarborough Association or will cover the cost of hiring the first two green fees if the league is played from the Gambart Green.

For the Individual League to go ahead players must respond as soon as possible.
