Caister Bowls Club’s Jane Cockrill and Barney Wymer won the mixed pairs tournament at the Great Yarmouth Bowls Festival.

They beat husband and wife pair Tracy and Carl Johnson, from Framlingham Castle in Suffolk, in the final of the Great Yarmouth Independent Newsagents-sponsored event.

In the 14-end final the Wymer pair scored two shots on each of the first three ends to lead 6-0. The Suffolk pair hit back to score seven over the next three to lead 7-6. They then scored seven shots to the Caister pair’s two over the next four ends, only to drop six shots on the 11th end, which saw the Wymer pair level the score 14-14.

The Wymer pair then scored a single shot over the final three ends, which saw them claim the title.

In the semi-finals the Johnson pair beat Joe Simpson and Phil Parsons from Freethorpe BC 16-6 while the Caister pair beat Lucy Tufts and Matt Flattman 12-9.
