GREENHILL Bowls Club have achieved an array of titles in the league and county competitions this season.

The club’s W2 side lifted the Percy Baker Triples crown after beating Broadstone at Dorchester Bowls Club.

Greenhill were well behind in the shots after a poor start by both rinks.

However, by the halfway stage, their form had improved, and the deficit was reduced.

Near the end, both Greenhill rinks piled on the pressure by

one rink, an end by five shots and the other an end by six shots,

resulting in an overall nine-

shot margin in favour of Greenhill.

Greenhill would like to dedicate their win in memory to former team captain Lloyd Starkey who sadly died last year.

For many years, Lloyd was an active member and chief steward of the club.


Rink One: Richard Towndrow, Keith Richie, Bill Foote (13-16)

Rink Two: Tim Munro, Derek Devonald-Batt, Maurice Zollo (25-13)

Meanwhile, Martin Puckett finished in runners-up spot in the County Singles.

Young Ryan Stone teamed up with pairs partner Graham Parker and George Spracklen to land the triples honours with club colleagues Puckett, Jamie Lockwood and Warwick Brown finishing runners-up.

Veteran Barry Patterson, along with Doug O’Bee, Tim Munro and Colin Poulter did very well, collecting the fours’ runner-up accolade, while the senior pairs’ success went to Mike Chislett and Warren Smith.

They all represented Bowls Dorset at the National Championships at Leamington Spa.
