Five championship matches were played last week at the Railway Diggers Bowling Club.

The Major Singles match between Paul Keogh and Col Boehm saw Col the victor 31-27.

The match could have gone either way, very close throughout.

After 22 ends, the score was locked 19-all.

Unfortunately for Paul, he went down two ends of four to allow Col to go on and win a very good match.

Luke Ramsay overshadowed Brian Hampton in another Major Singles match, winning 32-19.

Luke won 16 of the 31 ends.

After being a bit out of sorts of late, Luke showed the reason why he is the current champion and will be a force to be reckoned with in matches to come.

The upset of the round was the Major Singles match between Shane Sharman and Mick Furney.

Mick won a very close match 31-28.

After 15 ends, Mick held a convincing 17-4 lead before Shane fought back to be within three shots, trailing 26-23.

To Mick’s credit he held on to win an entertaining match.

In the Minor Singles match between two ex-Eugowra Eagles, George Greenhalgh and Matt Weekes, it was a tight game after 20 ends with one shot the difference.

With the green getting a bit faster, George seemed to adapt the better, winning the match 32-20.

In a Major Pairs contest, Tony Latter and Col Hornery played Frank Gersbach and Terry Clothier.

The match was won by Frank and Terry 31-11.

Not taking anything away from Terry, who played some great bowls, but Frank, at the ripe old age of eighty-something, is never far away from the jack.

He is certainly one of the best leads in the club and a fantastic clubman.

Congratulations to all those that have advanced.

Wednesday afternoon bowls were played with 24 bowlers in action.

Winners were Doug Miller and Craig Henry followed by Nev Whitfield and Col Boehm.

A reminder to those still competing in Singles and Pairs matches, these must be completed by August 9.

Winners can compete in the Champion of Champions to be held at the Railway Bowling Club on August 22, over two days.

The club is holding a cocktail night on July 25, and the Elvis Memorial Concert and Candlelight Vigil featuring the very popular Steve McKellar, commences at 8pm on August 15.

Bookings at the club with only limited numbers of tickets sold.

This weekend Saturday afternoon social bowls need names in by 12.30pm.
