Rebecca Field’s Norfolk and national Indoor Bowling double

The Norfolk County Women's Indoor Bowling Association singles final saw Rebecca Field (Norfolk) beat Jayne Roylance (Norfolk) 21-19.

This was a very closely-fought game all the way through with first one in front, then the other. At 15 ends, Jayne was three behind, six shots over the next four ends saw her lead 18-15. Jayne held match lie on the next end, only to have Rebecca draw second shot. Thanks to a full house on the 22nd end, Rebecca pressed on to take the game, adding the county crown to her National one.

In the pairs Rebecca Carter, Sandra Curtis (County Arts) beat Jayne Roylance, Christine Webb (North Walsham) 21-10.

The first half of the game was a very closely-fought game with the scores level at eight ends. From then on County Arts edged ahead, thanks to some superb bowling from the young Rebecca, ably backed up by her skip. A six on the 19th end for them resulted in the North Walsham pair conceding the game.

In the triples Jayne Roylance, Christine Webb, Linda Blake (North Walsham) beat Margaret Hawes, Mary Johnson, Carole Baker (Diss) 19-12.

It was another hard-fought game with the score 11-10 in favour of Walsham at 14 ends. On the next end, Diss conceded a five, and this really put the seal on what had been a very low-scoring game.

Wendy Bryant, Joyce Tart, Marlene Elvin, Shirley Flood (Wymondham Dell) won the fours beating Sue Gravener, Carol Perry, Carol Fenn, Jenny Morrison (Pinewood Park) 25-19.
