Ladies' finals

Two wood - Ann Brown 16, Pat Whitworth 8. This match was evenly balanced for 12 ends at 9-6, but Ann finished strongly and ran out a comfortable winner.

Three wood - Shirley Fewtrell 112 v Angie Mayhew 56: Shirley was in devastating form in this final, losing shots on only two of the 14 ends played. Angie, who has had an excellent season, came up against a player playing at the top of her game.

Four Wood handicap - Shirley Fewtrell (27) 27 v Chris McDonald (23) 20:

Chris started the stronger, leading 10-6 after 12 ends, but scored only five shots over the next 18 ends. Meanwhile, Shirley had increased her score to 26 needing just 1 shot for victory. A spirited comeback saw Chris get to within three shots of her target, before Shirley closed out an excellent match.

Championship - Joan Miles 21 v Julie Grant 13: A ding dong battle ensued in the one final all players would like to win, with Julie seeking her third successive victory, and Joan her first. Julie reached the dreaded 13 scoreline on the 14th end, with her opponent just two shots behind. At this point, Joan raced away to a 3,3,3,1 finish to take the title in confident style.

Mixed finals

Three wood - Roger Woolland 110 v Angie Mayhew 76: Angie matched Roger on 10 of the 18 ends played, but an inspired spell in the middle eight ends saw Roger home.

Ladies' Invitation Pairs - Shirley Fewtrell/Roger Woolland 24 v Ron Rowley/Julie Grant 19: This was the victors' third successive victory in this competition, although their opponents matched their skills up to end 13.

Men's Finals

Two wood - Roger Woolland 21 v Jeremy Allison 18: So near and yet so far for Jeremy, a member who took up bowling just two years ago. He had Seaton's best singles player struggling at 18-12 down with the winning post in sight, having won 16 of the first 23 ends played. A spell of excellent bowling over the next five ends saw Roger home a very relieved man. Congratulations to both players for providing some nail-biting entertainment.

Three wood - Ray McDonald 110 v Laurie Skipper 81: Laurie, who knocked out Roger Woolland in the first round (he is beatable), came up against an in-form Ray, and five double figure scores saw him home.

Four Wood handicap - Les Tooze 21 v Don Yaxley 14.

Championship - Roger Woolland 21 v Les Tooze 14: Roger secured his third successive championship.

Men's Pairs - John Packham/Roger Woolland 21 v Alan Pritchard/George Mabon 14.

Men's Triples - Roy Messeder/Roy Young/Roy Carnell 18 v Ed Backhouse/Peter Mattocks/ Ray McDonald 10.

Saward Trophy - Ray McDonald 21 v Denis Coles 14.

Jubilee Cup: Malcolm Carvell 21, Kevin Frost 16: A poor start ultimately cost Kevin the victory.

Congratulations to all the players.
