ON A blistering hot afternoon at Benitachell Bowling Club, the final of the Setford Trophy competition took place between Jackie Munt and Trevor Rush.
The bowling achieved a really high standard in very trying condition, well supported by BBC members, and turned out to be a really fitting tribute to the late Terry Setford.
This competition, which is only open to newer bowlers, was inaugurated by Terry who introduced and coached the majority of beginners at the club over recent years.
Pauline Setford presented the prize to the winner, Jackie Munt, and congratulated both bowlers on a terrific game which everyone was sure Terry watched.
From a spectators point of view, in a real ding dong affair, Jackie clawed back into the game after Trevor raced into the lead.
Gritty bowling from both players culminated in the final end with the score standing at a whisker close, 18-17 to Trevor.
Jackie was left holding three with a last wood and under pressure, bowled a superb concentrated draw to make full house and the match.
Thanks were given to John Hendrick for marking the match and to all the spectators who supported the finalist.
The BBC summer triples winners were, ‘No Such Luck’ who win the BBC Summer Triples Title from ‘Summer Mavericks’ on shot difference.
Both teams clear of the field by 4 points in the BBC Summer Triples League sponsored by Direkt Optik Opticians and Ibex Insurance.
The winning team were Paul Truncheon, (El Cid) Trefor Evans, (BBC) Velia Wood, (Javea Green) Mick Adams, Sheila Lucas (BBC) and Alan Phillips. (Javea Green)
