Price Brown Trophy


Sunday September 4th saw the first Price Brown Trophy lawn bowls competition at Bowling Club de Zurgena.

36 bowlers took part in the yardstick competition where the object is to get as many bowls as possible within a yard of the jack (the target). The competition was played over 18 ends split into three sessions of 6 ends, with breaks for refreshment between each sessions. Refreshments consisting of homemade cakes donated by members and guests and a burger and salad lunch. And maybe the odd beer or glass of wine.

The players were well supported by guests and representatives of Price Brown Partnership.

The eventual winners, by quite a margin were Mike Philpott, Paul Day and Simon Ellis with 67 points and the runners up Arthur Colman, Jim Rooney and Lorraine Malt with 54 points.

The winners were presented with the Price Brown Trophy and the winners and runners up presented with bottles of Cava, again sponsored by Price Brown.

The day was rounded off, surprisingly, with more beer and wine.

A great day was had by all and Bowling Club de Zurgena express a huge thanks to the sponsors Price Brown Partnership of Mojacar for all their sponsorship and support, and the beautiful hamper they donated which raised much appreciated funds for the club.
