How close is this ? drew our last game when three up going into the last end :(

Feels like doing a Leeds back in 1964/65

All three draws were the culprits, blew a winning chance on the final end in each match. We also lost our crucial match to the 3 Amigos 16-15 on the final end.

Chucked it away tbh :( got a nice little runners-up meddle

On the Hoof's team won the Evening Pairs League which we've won for the last 6 or 7 years so happy John, Pam & myself prevailed again

Have a singles final + a triples semi-final coming up so it's been a good season even though I broke my wrist in December

Yep :lol:

Bowls is a compulsive addictive sport, never thought I'd take to it when I started playing 13 years ago, now a big part of my life, love it

Finals day at Middleton-On-The-Wolds Bowls Club

3pm was the time of the Singles Final so with a limited mobile signal I had no idea how my beloved Leeds were doing. I just knew I had to turn up & perform to a very high level as my opponent JG is a fine player. I started the game well even though I was 3-1 down, my confidence in my own ability paid off as I went into an 8-3 lead. From then on I never looked back as with a 17-9 lead my opponent looked downhearted, the 21 winning line was in my grasp which I made with considerable ease to score a 4 on our final end. So the 21-9 result gave me the distinguished status of being Middleton's Indoor Bowls Champion :champ:

I was determined to win this Singles title after missing out on two months of the season due to my broken wrist back in December. I needed to prove to myself I could still perform at a decent level even though I had to go through the pain barrier at times
So two titles in the bag & just missing out on the Triples league as above has made it a very successful season for your resident bowler :-D

Absolutely over the moon to be champion since my last title win in 2010 :-D

Cheers mate.....my attendance record at games results-wise hasn't been that clever of late

I play my sport at a consistently high level sadly unlike our beloved Leeds

Congratulations Leon.

A very fine win, especially considering the bad break you had just before Christmas.

Well Done - plus a 12/1 winner in the NAP's, wins for the Rhinos and YCC. Only one thing stopping it being a brilliant day :(

Thanks Gandi

I was on such a high I honestly didn't let the Leeds result get to me.
As you say everything else in my world went so well I wasn't gonna allow that disappointment ruin my day.
Jill cooked a smashing delicious meal as always to finish the day off in style :-D

Well done Leon, as has already been said, to achieve what you have after breaking your wrist is fantastic :cup

Thanks Swan, quite a few bowlers & non-bowlers at the do last night said the same to me.

Sheer determination to get through the pain-barrier initially I guess & a will to win of course.

Will be tougher next season as the big guns are determined to beat the champ, only to be expected I suppose. I enjoy a challenge :-D
