Smith exacts revenge for family

STEVE Smith exacted a family revenge on Barry Lowden to win the J and J Sharp Agricultural Contractors Open Singles Lindal.


Lowden had beaten Smith’s son Daniel in the semi-finals at the village club, but there was to be no further success for the King Alfred bowler.

He had opened the final with a couple of singles, but Steve soon got into his stride to build up leads of 8-3, 10-5 and 13-9.

Lowden dug in to get back to 14-12, but Steve then stepped up a gear to claim the next five ends and run out the worthy winner at 21-12.

The champion was on top form all day, gaining wins over Liam Howard, 21-14, Billy Harding, 21-10, and David Robinson, 21-9, in the semi-finals.

Lowden opened his account with a 21-8 win against Alex Spelman, was followed by victories over Kevin Rooney, 21-16, Andy Thornton, 21-14, and then Daniel Smith, 21-10 in the last four. Lindal Bowling Club would like to thank J and J Sharp Agricultural Contractors for continued support, the ground staff, kitchen and bar staff, markers and measurers for their efforts.

The next tournament at Lindal will be the Bertie Andrews Memorial Cup Singles, on Sunday, June 17.

There are spaces still available for that event. To enter, ring Ray Butcher on 01229 463984.


Quarter-finals: B Hardy 10 S Smith 21, D Robinson 21 E Andrews 7, D Smith 21 J Reilly 20, A Thornton 14 B Lowden 21.

Semi-finals: S Smith 21 D Robinson 9, D Smith 10 B Lowden 21.
