2019 SUMMER SEASON SOCIAL MATCHES REPORT, FROM A NON - BOWLER.
Now I know stats don’t always paint a true picture, but they are there in black and white and as such for your delectation, delight and utter boredom, below and attached, are the all important facts and figures for the 2019 social match Summer season, which has just been completed. Results wise, the Club had a thoroughly disappointing 2019 Summer season and from the 25 matches played, (out of the scheduled 26, as 01 match was cancelled by the Oppo), only managed to win 06 and lost a massive 19. Admittedly some of these losses were close fought affairs, (seven times we only lost by 05 shots or less), but it seems that other clubs, appreciate and have learnt, how to minimise the losses on each rink, meaning that the overall match score stays close, right till the end and so are in with a chance of winning the overall match, come the last few ends. Something that PARIBC would do well to copy and take note of! Equally, same as last Winter season, it was also sad to see that some of the basic etiquettes of the game are also on the wane and we, as a club, are as guilty as anyone. This is something that was addressed at the recent coaching night, so we will hopefully see an improvement as we go forward. Well done to Eric Clive and Tony Jewell for retaining their titles, in the two comps, (see details below).
Huge thanks go to Summer Captain Eric Clive, whose hard work and effort cannot be underestimated. A lot of this is all the unseen bits, behind the scenes, making sure the match days run smoothly. He has been ably supported on match days by his wing man, Jock Sutherland and both gents have been kept in order, by Fran Sutherland. And as we all know, you don’t mess with Fran, ho, ho! Thanks to all those 65 different members who turned out to represent the Club and to all those who helped Eric with the numerous “other” jobs, that made it easier for him to get on with his role as Captain. Biggest thanks go to Dot Elliott and her troop of helpers for all their efforts in the kitchen to provide the food and drink at the tea and biccies matches, to Nicola and Adrian and boys / girls in the kitchen for the meals and to Sue Smith, (Bar manageress) and her helpers, Katie Hilder, Malcolm Clark, Pam Fincher, Graham Hubbard, to name but a few. Thanks are also due to Glynis “Guinness” Whatman in her role as Fixture Secretary for all her hard work. Also mention must be given to the regular lady supporters and honorary members of the “Old Girls Collective”, namely, in alphabetical order, Julie Edwards, Janet Small, Gloria Smith and Fran Sutherland who came to nearly all the matches, not only watching and supporting, (in between chatting and knitting and chatting, ho, ho!), but helping at times with the food, drinks and kitchen duties and their good natured banter that emanated at most games. Finally, many thanks to all those who drove and gave lifts to / from all the away matches and if I have forgotten anybody for roles, then apologies, but thanks to you as well! Much appreciated!
Enjoy your Winter and please continue to support the Club, (it needs you!)!
Up the Arthur!
Kind regards, from your correspondent, a man who should not be allowed anywhere near a bowls green!
2019 SUMMER SEASON - PARIBC SOCIAL MATCH STATS:-
Of the scheduled 26 matches, (13 home / 13 away), in the 2019 Summer, PARIBC played 25 matches, won 06 matches, (06 home / 00 away), lost 19 matches, (06 home / 13 away) and 01 match was cancelled, (01 home / 00 away) and 65 different members represented the Club in these matches, of which 26 of those members, played in at least 07, (approx. a quarter), or more of the scheduled matches. Eric Clive played the most matches, playing in all 25, closely followed by Tony Jewell, who played in 24 and Dave Sutherland who played in 21.
In the “Player Of The Season” competition, (you had to play at least 07 matches and then your best 07 scores were taken), the winner once again was Eric Clive, who beat Tony Jewell, by 07 shots. Tony had led the comp. from the first match, but thanks to being carried by team mates to some big scores at the end of the season, Eric came through to pip Tony and retain his title. Mention must be made of Val Green, the vape mistress herself, who had a good steady season, (note good showing in both comps.) and was very consistent, (and shouty, ho, ho), throughout, in all matches she played. The top five were as follows:-
1st. Eric Clive = played 25 matches; total shots scored in all matches = 453; total shots scored in best 07 matches = 179
2nd. Tony Jewell = played 24 matches; total shots scored in all matches = 428; total shots scored in best 07 matches = 172
3rd. Tim Fletcher = played 18 matches; total shots scored in all matches = 298; total shots scored in best 07 matches = 168
4th. Val Green = played 21 matches; total shots scored in all matches = 334; total shots scored in best 07 matches = 165
5th. Dave Sutherland = played 23 matches; total shots scored in all matches = 350; total shots scored in best 07 matches = 155
In the “Shots Difference” competition, (you had to play at least 07 matches and then your best 07 scores were taken) and as per the other comp., it was the same winner as last year, as Mr Consistent, Tony Jewell, romped home in first place. Runner up Val Green pushed him hard, with both actions and voice, but could not catch him. The top five were as follows:
1st. Tony Jewell = total shots difference scored in best 07 matches = 107
2nd. Val Green = total shots difference scored in best 07 matches = 94
3rd. Eric Clive = total shots difference scored in best 07 matches = 91
4th. Dave Sutherland = total shots difference scored in best 07 matches = 83
5th Tim Fletcher = total shots difference scored in best 07 matches = 81
