FINALS WEEK 2022 – FINALS DAY
Details of Finals Day winners can be found here.
Saturday 3rd September saw our main Finals day for the 2022 season. We began in very warm and bright sunshine which lasted all day till we had a very heavy shower in the early afternoon but after half an hour play resumed sunshine right to the end. The rain could not dampen the spirits of the players or supporters. Once again we were treated to some fantastic bowling and very even closely contested Finals all day. Many not being decided till the last end and indeed two only with their last wood bowled up the Green.
A great day bowling all played in a very friendly and sporting spirit enjoyed by the many supporters who came and went all day in support of their own club members and the fine bowling shown by their opponents too. Thank you to all at North Mymms for all their hard work and efforts to make the day such a success.
Thanks also go to the Umpires Brian Burfoot and John Bartlett, and the markers Peter Stokes and Mick Brennan in marking the two fantastic singles Finals.
Those present helped to raise £65 for the Presidents Charity Dementia UK. We have already sent them £1200.00 and this will help towards the second amount we will send to them in January next year.
The quality of the bowling was fantastic-the sportsmanship by all was great and the enthusiasm and support of the spectators was great. Thanks to everyone on behalf of Michael Scandrett and myself Michael Woodhams. It makes all the many hours spent running all the competitions
throughout the summer well worth it. 2022 is nearly over and we begin to plan and prepare for 2023.
