BACK TO BACK WINS AS WELLS RETAIN THE BOWL 

On Monday the 1st October a day when the weather threatened to close the Course this year’s finalists descended upon the Mendip Golf Club for a 1pm start.

Torrential rain and the threat of thunder was always in the back of the players minds and as the game got underway the rain came hammering down as the sound of thunder was heard over the hill.

Thankfully the longer the contest went on the better the weather became and by the end of the days play the sun had come out.

The course was in remarkable condition considering the recent downpours and a big thank you must go to the greens staff for its presentation.

So who would triumph in this most local of finals, would it be Wells last years winners or Farrington Park. Neither had travelled far both were determined to come out on top.

Match 1 win for Wells 2/1 was cancelled out in match 2 as Farrington Park won 1up. In match 3 the Farrington pairing of Phil Thomas and Steve Hobbs overcame their opponents 3/2. Wells bounced back to tie the scores as Nick Wilson and Bill McCoulm rounded off a fine performance 4/3. So it was left to the Wells Captain Glen Crocker and partner Mike Metcalfe to bring home the spoils as they beat Dave Harvey and Jim Lunt 3/2.

Victory for Wells 3-2 and unlike many local derby’s in sport this match was played in the true spirit of the game.    

There has to be a winner and runner up so well done both clubs for making the final and good luck next year. Thank you to the members of the Mendip and all its staff for making the County Seniors Bowl final so welcome.




Wells win 2018
