League secretary’s report on 2021 League Finals Day at Ringwood.


The weather was good for us again this year, not too sunny, not too warm, but most of all DRY.

The Ringwood green, thanks to Paul, must be one of the best in England not just Hampshire. He was there hours before we started at 10am and attended it during the change over from the Ringwood Shield to the President’s Trophy. The bowls ran without any sign of jumping or deviation. This was also due to the quality of the bowlers.

West Moors overcame any pressure from Verwood to win by 30 shots (79-49)

The President’s Trophy was similar with Ringwood posting a 59-shot victory over Braeside. (96-37)

My sincere thanks to Frank Senior for passing the rink to our President Derick Faulkner and all the other members of Ringwood who provided plenty of food and drink at very good prices.

The President’s Trophy has been awarded 20 times since it was initiated with Ringwood winning it 12 times. Quite an achievement.

The idea of spreading the starting times as there were only two games this year worked well for the carpark and the catering.

Thanks again to all concerned.

Chris

There is a vacancy for Press Officer and it is hoped someone would come forward to fill this post.


David Bradley will be retiring as Match Secretary at the end of 2021 season so the NFBA are looking for someone to take on the role in the 2022 season, ideally to shadow David during the coming season.
