West Mersea Bowls Club
2019 Champions League
Report by Brian Johnson (Chairman)
What a great idea to organise a competition around the European Champions Cup competition. It was extremely well received by the membership with great numbers of members attending firstly a bowls competition, followed a meal and finally watching the football.
The two captains organised an excellent team competition with the winners of individual ends playing against each other in the next round. This resulted in a very close contest with the team of Ken Madgwick, Gwen House and Pat Veitch running out as the eventual winners.
After some excellent bowling everyone moved into the Club lounge for a delightful roast dinner ably prepared by Sue, Lorna and their band of helpers.
Duly refreshed and well watered everyone settled down to enjoy the European final on the TV and whilst it was not the best match ever seen it was enjoyed by everyone except the Spurs fans in attendance.
Well done to our captains for arranging and delivering an excellent afternoon and evening.
