The annual Coastal League Short Mat Bowls Singles competition took place at Hemsby Village Hall.

Playing on mat one was Phil Fiske (Bradwell Robins), Bob Powell-Thomas (Martham), Mike Hodgson (Hemsby Beachcombers) and Gail Hodgson (Hemsby Beachcombers).

Gail won all of her games. a magnificent result for a relative newcomer. Mike, her other half, came second.

Playing on mat two were Derek Sheldrake (Woodbastwick Owls), Anne Baker (Bradwell Dynamos), Lin Moore (Hemsby Harvesters) and Doreen Scarff (Woodbastwick Eagles). The winner of this group was Anne, who notched up three handsome wins. Runner-up was Derek.

Mat three consisted of Margaret Newcombe (Bradwell Robins), Keith Baker (Bradwell Dynamos), John Betts (Hemsby Harvesters) and Tony Wright (Woodbastwick Eagles). Both Keith and Tony finished with four points but it was Keith who finished first with a better shot difference.

The players on mat four were Brian Frost (Woodbastwick Owls), Alan Marker (Hemsby Beachcombers), Sandra Peters (Martham) and Mike Harvey (Bradwell Dynamos). Sandra won all of her games while Brian came second.

In group one of the quarter-finals was Keith Baker, Derek Sheldrake, Sandra Peters and Mike Hodgson.

Derek played Keith and won 9-6 while Sandra played Mike and picked up two on the seventh and two on the eighth to winn 7-6.

Group two was Gail Hodgson v Tony Wright and Anne Baker v Brian Frost. Tony won his match 11-4 while Brian edged past Anne 8-5 in a game that really could have gone either way.

In the semi-finals Derek beat Brian 8-6 in an exciting match while Sandra turned on the style, playing some superb bowls to beat Tony 13-1.

The final also saw some impressive bowling. Derek won the first two ends and gained a three-shot advantage but once again Sandra put the heat on, with a three-shot win in round three. And then she really let loose, winning all the remaining ends: one, two, one, one, one.

Sandra really excelled herself with a 9-3 win to become the Singles Coastal League champion.

The next event will be the Coastal League Triples on Sunday, February 4, again at Hemsby Village Hall.
