Champion of Champions

Congratulations to Mandy Jones on winning the Bowls Cornwall Ladies Champion of Champions Singles Title at St.Stephens, beating Suzie Collings of Chacewater in the semi, and Joyce Barrett of Grampound in the Final.

Mandy narrowly failed to consolidate her winning mentality by losing the County Singles Final to Katie Sturtridge at Newquay Trenance on Saturday morning.

What a successful season this has been for Mandy - the first time any Callington lady has played at the National Championship Finals, Champion of Champions, and Singles Finalist.

Finally, on Sunday morning Mandy played in the trial match for the Cornwall Johns Trophy team.

Second Again.............

Callington A team once again finished in 2nd place in the Eastern Division of the Cornwall Bowls League. Only 1.5 points separated champions Liskeard from Callington. Given that Callington lost three of their top players in pre-season transfers, and injuries throughout the year meant that a full first team was seldom assembled a second place was an unexpected bonus. The B team finished above Liskeard B and Torpoint A and were never in danger of relegation.
All in all a successful season especially as the club reached the final of the Croydon Marks competition (effectively the League Cup) and lost in a hrd fought game to Stratton at Dunheved on August 21st.

In the Plymouth and District League, the Callington team have finished second to Bere Alston in the Triples league in what has been an educational experience playing on Plymouth bowling greens. The top two are promoted to Division One so further club success is possible.

The Ladies have excelled this year and have finished top of the Tamar League, with mid table position in the Ripon.

Congratulations to Ros Redfern on winning the Group 2 Ladies Secretary's Singles and the Over 55 Singles.

Green Opening Day 2019
