Winners of the State Men’s 60 & Over Pairs Championship

I am delighted to announce the winners of the Men’s State 60 & Over Pairs Championship  for 2019/20 with both the Semi Finals and Finals being played at Shepparton Golf Bowls Club today.

In the first part of the Semi Finals – Richard Warburton and Jock Hastie (Shepparton Golf) defeated Graeme Myers and Graeme Waddell (Shepparton Golf) and then went on to defeat Denis Smyth and Peter Brodie ( Shepparton Park).  Also in the Semi Finals Paul Beecroft and Rob Thorne (Shepparton Park) were defeated by John Dagger and Peter Laws (Shepparton Golf). Following this the two Shepparton Golf teams played off whereby Richard Warburton and Jock Hastie were narrowly defeated by John Dagger and Peter Laws. Congratulations to the winners and to all those who played in this event. In particular the knockout presented not only superb bowling but also posed a challenge to bowler’s fitness.

Many thanks to Shepparton Golf’s ladies for the great lunch and the way they looked after players and officials. The play was made possible by the superb greens thanks to the greenkeepers and the volunteers at Shepparton Bowls Golf Club Greens Committee.

Alongside this we would also like to thank the Umpire of the Day, Rob Brent and his assistant.

Well done to all participants and especially to John Dagger and Peter Laws for their winning of the GVBD State Men’s 60 & Over Pairs for 2019/20 Season.
