Errol Feavearyear had a successful day at the Bury and District Bowls League’s finals day on Sunday, winning two singles titles and a triples.

In the men’s singles, he allowed opponent Dennis Andrews few opportunities and won 21-11.

It was similar in the over-60s against David Brackenbury for a 21-12 victory.

Added to these fine wins was a 25-9 scoreline in the three bowls triples, playing with Paul Cook and Sue Peckitt against the West Row trio skipped by Bill Gathercole.

Peckitt bowled particularly well as the Ixworth triple swept to a 20-1 lead after 10 ends and they were always in control.

Both ladies’ singles were won by Christine Whitton, beating Gloria Saunders and June Vine.

Whitton also participated in the ladies’ pairs with Pauline Davies.

They led 7-6 at 11 ends against Angela Rosier and Lesley Leacy, but scored on only two more ends.

There was a close match in the under-25s and Daniel Moss managed to pip clubmate Chris Day.

Moss also competed in the two-bowl triples with his brother Craig and Ralph Marsh.

Nine shots on the first two ends helped them to a comfortable victory against the Risbygate rink skipped by Terry Harber.

Both finalists in the men’s pairs had already been in losing triples and David Barber and Peter Rolfe had the consolation of a resounding win against Trevor Button and Terry Harber.

The mixed pairs was all St Botolphs and Peter and Sandy Sargeant won by two shots against Julia and David Maycock.

There were strange scores in the Shield.

At five ends Greene King led by one, but rink scores at that stage were 5-4, 6-0, 7-0 and 0-13.

The match score stayed close, although rink scores did not.

Stanton took the lead 
for the first time at 10 ends 
and they were not headed again.

In the two-rink Agnew Cup, Hengrave were ahead throughout against Tuddenham.

The Victor Ludorum is awarded to the most successful club in the finals and Tuddenham’s extra participants outscored Ixworth’s three wins by one point.
