Bowls England Senior Pairs Title comes to Oxfordshire

Hawker cup winners 2018Congratulations to Paul Comley & Colin Whitehead who won the Bowls England National Men’s Senior Pairs Competition, supported by the Friends of English Bowling, at Victoria Park, Royal Leamington Spa.

The Headington duo defeated Cornwall’s Ronnie Thomas and Kevin Williams 24-7 in Sunday’s final.

The victory ensured that Colin joins a distinguished group of people to have won both the Men’s Senior Singles and Senior Pairs, following his success in the Men’s Senior Singles in 2010, in a game which will be remembered by those of us who were present, for the horrific wet and windy conditions down at Worthing.

In the Sunday mornings semi-final, they secured a 24-10 victory over nearby Buckinghamshire rivals Neil Farnish and David Simpson from Gerrards Cross BC.

On their way to the title, Colin & Paul had comfortable wins against pairings from Huntingdonshire 28-11 in the first round, a second round 28-2 win against Lancashire and a 21-16 quarter-final success against Lincolnshire.
