Zone 9 wins Metropolitan Senior Sides

Tony Tinworth, Thursday, 21 August 2008

The Zone 9 side today won the Combined Sydney Zones Seniors event with a 6-1 points, 91-79 shots win over Zone 10 at Belrose Bowling Club. This win was sufficient to win the series from Zone 13 by 1 point so the side went into today's match unable to drop more than 1 rink. The earlier decision by the organising committee to play sides finishing in first and second position was reversed, so today's match concludes the series for 2008.

The Seniors Shield will be presented to Zone President Geoff Campbell on Sunday next at a function to be held in honour of Herb Bradman at Double Bay Bowling Club.
Congratulations to all those players who represented our Zone in the 8 match series.

G Lewis (Manly), P Rawlings (N. Manly), A Taylor (Harbord) & Reg Robinson (N. Manly)
