Coastal League Singles Championships

Sixteen bowlers from the Coastal League met for the League Singles Competition, held at Hemsby Village Hall on 11th November 2018. In the Round Robin Stage, Sandra Tungate from Bradwell Dynamos was the winner in Group 1, Derek Sheldrake from Woodbastwick Owls was the winner of Group 2, Mike Harvey from Bradwell Acorns won Group 3, and Peter Jablonowski came through as winner of Group 4. In the Quarter Finals, Derek Sheldrake won his match 8-4 against Lyn Moore of Hemsby Harvesters.  Mat 2 saw a very tight match between Sandra Tungate and Harvester’s Trish Wooden, which went to an extra end, with Sandra Tungate emerging as winner.  Mat 3 saw a close game which ended with Peter Jablonowski beating John Beadle of Hemsby Beachcombers 7-5.  On Mat 4, Alan Marker from Beachcombers had a comfortable win 10-3 against Mike Harvey. The two Woodbastwick Owls players Derek Sheldrake and Peter Jablonowski were drawn against each other in the Semi-finals, which produced another close match, Derek Sheldrake just pipping his fellow Owl by one shot.  Sandra Tungate won the other Semi-final, beating Alan Marker 8-5. An excellent Final was enjoyed by all the supporters, it could have gone to either bowler, but in the end Derek Sheldrake of Woodbastwick Owls came away with a well deserved winner’s trophy.
