2016-17 Competition

The 2016-17 competition was held on the weekend of 8/9 October 2016 at Ross Bowling Club with 26 entrants competing initially in 7 round robin groups before the group winners and runners-up progressed to the knockout stage along with the 2 best 3rd placed teams. At the semi-final stage the defending champion John Jillings (Woolhope) went out to 2 times winner Ian Park (Ross) who set up an all Ross final after Ian Roe defeated George Marshall in the other semi final. The final saw Ian Roe unable to match Ian Park’s accurate draw bowling and despite Ian Roe killing the 9th end 3 times before forcing the match into a final end Ian Park deservedly secured the match to take a record 3rd title.
