The Honda Jazz mixed doubles knockout tournament took place recently at Ribblesdale Wanderers Cricket and Bowling Club.

There was a great crowd on from the start on a cold day to watch some very good bowling on a perfect green.

The competition was kindly sponsored again by Greenacre Honda.

It was a very good final with Carol Dawson and David Darley taking a early advantage on the first two ends, leading 4-0, then Ian Jackson and Doreen Bickerstaff won the next end to make it 4-3.

Carol and David started to take control and were soon 15-8 up.

Ian and Doreen were always behind until the 26th end, where they made it 18-17, and they backed that up with a two, and then a one at the last end to win.

Many thanks go to the sponsors Greenacre Honda, the ground staff, the ladies in the the kitchen and all the markers and peggers.

Losing semi-finalists were S.Gall and G.Raynor, and M.Burns and M. Wright.
