Crowther wins Veterans again.

Cleobury Mortimer was the venue for the 2017 running of the Flowfit Ludlow and District Bowls League Veterans competition and 16 entrants took part on a sunny day in South Shropshire. There was a repeat of last years final in the quarter finals with Roy Crowther getting his revenge on Graham Lane by beating him 21 - 16 as he aimed to win the trophy for the fourth time in its five year existence. 

 

Semi final number one saw Mortimer's Roy Broome take on Craven Arms Lillian Payne. With Roy bring a home bowler he started on -2 but came out of the block strongly and found himself 11 - 5 up. Payne battled back and found herself 13 - 10 down but Broome took it up a gear and ran out a convincing 21 -10 victor. 

 

Semi final number two was Burway's Roy Crowther against Ludlow Castle's Colin Lane with Lane looking to avenge his brothers defeat in the quarter finals. The game was nip and tuck with only single chalks being counted but Crowther steadily took control and looked in command at 18 - 9 up. Lane tried to rally but Crowther sealed a comfortable 21 - 12 win.

 

The final was a battle of the Roy's and with Broome again starting on -2, Crowther soon raced into an 11 - 5 lead. Broome battled back and got it back to being 14 - 11 down but Crowther was soon in command again to win 21 - 14 to win the title for the fourth time.
