Short Mat Success
We have started the year as we hope to continue. Congratulations to The Coasters, winners of the Short Mat League Cup. The Coasters comprise of 8 current and 3 former members of Torquay Bowls Club. All eleven have played at some point in getting the team through to the finals but only nine can play in any one round. Our heroes are June Skennerton, Jean Welch, Penny Shannon, Joan and Bob Wiggington, Di Hardwell, Hazell Addey, Ray Scott, Ray Blair, Alan Hewitt and Eric Leason.
Played at the Derwent on Saturday 2nd March the Coasters overcame Paignton Showstoppers in the semi-final and triumphed over the Babbercombe Cary Parkers in the final.
