2017 Club Consistency:
May Bobrige has won her 10th Consistency Final
The Consistency final between May and Dianne Byrne was played on Thursday 28th September and it was a game of close heads and skilled bowling from both women.
At the 9th end the score was 48 to May and 42 to Dianne and by the 16th end May was 82 whilst Dianne was 78. Not much between them!
From the 22nd end May was 116 and Dianne 104 showing how close it was.
May then drew away with some high scores over the last 3 ends to make the final score 150/108.
It was a good final to watch and both bowlers performed very well.
Congratulations to May Bobrige on winning the 2017 Club Consistency for the 10th time.
What an amazing achievement.
