RUMOURS

24th September 20 - There must be something in the water at Doubleview as another leaves

RESULTS

24th September 20 - I'd forgotten this tournament was in the middle of the most important stages when COVID hit in March, the Doubleview Masters Fours semi-final and final has been scheduled for Sunday 4th October. Games are listed below -

Clive Adams, Sam Perica, Andrew Foster, Luke Bolton vs
Cody Packer, Anthony Williams, Dale Marsland, Lewis Grigg

Shane Knott, Tom Mitchell, Stephen Patterson, Scott O’Brien vs
Ryan Moyle, Kyle Mcilroy, Stephen Cerff, Corey Bessant

They are some good games of bowls, if free on the 4th venture out to Doubleview to watch some cracking games, semis kick off at 10.30am

FINALS

21st September 20 - In some of the worst conditions known to be playing bowls in on Saturday, we have got our final teams for the Mens Pennants for the upcoming season 2020/21. Only 1 side from the 1st division lost their spot in the challenge games, South Perth losing to Safety Bay swaps them around from 1 White/1 Blue South.
I haven't seen the official lists from Bowls WA but the list attached Click Here shows all results from the weekend and what I think make up the 1st division sides. Not sure how Manning will be treated is the unknown for me, will there be a North and South team or will they have 2 sides in South? I don't think it is going to be long before we see the draws anyway from Bowls WA

19th September 20 - Good luck to all teams playing today, I neglected to mention the very important game between Rossmoyne and Wanneroo, the winner of that game will be playing Premier League this season. Also to the 2nd to 5th division sides also playing for promotion, it's a big day for a few clubs wanting to play in a higher grade

16th September 20 - A most important weekend of bowls for a few teams. With the weather forecast at the moment to be wet, a washout means teams stay where they are apart from the automatically promoted and demoted teams. Some teams have been sent to me, others are most welcome.
