EBYDS County Finals - Horsham IBC - 10 February 2019

 

There was a good increase in the turnout from last year mainly due to the work being done at Grattons IBC to bring youngsters into the game.  As usual the day provided the normal high standard of bowling from both the boys and the girls. 

For the third year running we combined the Junior and Senior Finals on the same day.  There were 22 Junior (8-14 age group) entries (12 girls and 11 boys) and 9 Senior (15-18) entries (1 girl and 8 boys)

In the Junior round robin singles competition in the morning, because the number of entries wasnít divisible by four, we had to have 2 groups of five and 3 groups of four. This meant that in the Groups of five, one player had to play four games

instead of three but their last score didnít count.  This was to ensure that everyone else in the group played three games. The top boy in the singles was Ellison Hankin (Grattons IBC) having won all three games with a shot difference

of +21. This was some performance considering Ellison had only just celebrated his 9  birthday five days before.  The top girl in the singles was Treana Smith (Worthing Pavilion BC) with a shot difference of +17. Treana won it for the

second year running.

In the Seniors singles competition, once again it had to be a Group of five and a Group of 4 and as there was only one girl they just played for an overall winner.  The only girl, Hannah Maslen (Grattons IBC), was the winner with 3 wins and a

shot difference of +33 and the runner-up was Archie Batten (Horsham IBC) with two wins and a shot difference of +13.  In the afternoon they all tackled the assorted skills such as jack rolling, line bowling, controlled weight and beating a shot which was 2Ĺ metres from the ditch.  The competition was again closely fought with the boys winner, Freddie Cable (Eastbourne IBC) having amassed 40pts to win by 4 from Tudor Corinda (Grattons IBC) on 36pts.  For the girls there was a tie between Treana Smith (Worthing Pavilion BC) and Evelyn Urwin-Wright (Worthing Pavilion BC) both on 29pts. In the Seniors skills girl power came to the fore again with Hannah Maslen (Grattons IBC) beating the nearest boy, Hayden Clarke, by a single point with 49pts.

When the scores from the singles and skills were combined the Overall Champion of the Juniors with 70pts was Freddie Cable beating Treana Smith by 11pts.  In the Seniors also 11pts separated the winner, Hannah Maslen 79pts

from the runner-up Hayden Clarke on 68pts.

The presentations were made to the Seniors by the SBA President, Gordon Leaman and SWBA President, Brenda Davies.  That duty for the Juniors was undertaken by SCIBA President, Ray Leggett and SCWIBA President, Sue

Mitchell and Vice President, Louise Kenward.  The attendance of all these dignitaries shows the importance both Associations place on the bowlers of the future within the County.

Hannah Maslen, Hayden Clarke, Freddie Cable and Treana Smith will now go forward to the Regional Finals at Horsham IBC on Sunday 14  April where we wish them the best of luck in attempting to reach the National Finals.
