Lockswood finish g&f on a high

Having already won the G&F Presidents Cup, Treasurers Cup and Bowler Of The Year Trophy, plus The Golds and the Greens both gaining promotion to join the Reds in Division One, Lockswood have rounded off a fine season by retaining the G&F Cup.

Congratulations to Coleen Money, Fred Kelsey and Adrian Dadd, who were representing Lockswood and The Greens. The final was held over 6 ends and after going down 5 shots in the first two ends, the Lockswood team pulled back the deficit and scored 2 shots in the final end to win 6 shots to 5, against home team Crofton.

ladies b team are runners up!

The Ladies S&D B Team, rounded off a fantastic season by defeating Old Green by 50 - 38, and clinching the B League Runners Up position.

Many congratulations to all the Ladies who put in so much effort and commitment to make it such a successful season.  This year there were some new faces in the team and hopefully this season's experience will encourage them to continue next season and also tempt other Ladies to join the party.

Unfortunately the Runners Up position does not guarantee promotion and will be dependant upon the number of teams who leave or join the A and B Leagues next season.

Let's keep our fingers crossed, as the ladies deserve the chance to play in the A League next season.

Accumulator Ann does it again!

Well done to Ann Martin who has won the Accumulator for the second successive year. Runners Up this season were, Les Chantler, Pat Costello and Richard Davies.

S&D Leagues 

 final round up

Men's Championship - Division One

After just one season in the top flight, our Men's Championship team, have been relegated to Division Two. The team won only two matches all season, beating Parkside, home and away.

Men's Combination - Division One

The Combination Team suffered the same fate as the Championship Team, they were promoted last year, but finished bottom this season, winning just three games all season.

Men's Combination Triples- Division Five

Finally some good news for the men. The Triples team had a very successful season and finished in second place, winning ten of their fifteen matches. Congratulations.

Ladies' A Team - A League

After a fantastic season the Ladies came runners up to Atherley in the A League, winning ten of their sixteen matches and with a 100% home record. Their well deserved runners up position was confirmed on the last day of the season when they defeated Hedge End.

Ladies' B Team - B League

What a brilliant year for the Ladies' Section, the B Team, also had a superb season and they too finished runners up in the B League and are eagerly awaiting confirmation of promotion to the A League next year. The B Team won nine of their fourteen games and finished runners up to Littleton. Who says our Ladies can't compete on grass??

district pairs champions

Following yesterdays premature announcement that

Andy & Adrian had won the S&D Pairs Final, when in fact they had won their semi final, I am delighted and relieved to report that they are indeed District Pairs Champions, after defeating Woolston in the Final.  There is absolutely no requirement to change my crystal ball.


Lockswood members reached the finals of  two District Competitions. Lorraine Slater played in the four bowl singles and was runner up to Janet Ballard from Waterside, an excellent effort.

Andy Dawson and Adrian Dadd, competed in the S&D Men's Pairs Semi Finals and met a team  from Sports Centre. No details of the game are available at this time, other than the most important piece of information......Andy and Adrian won and are playing  Woolston in the Final on Sunday.


Apologies for incorrect information posted previously.

John Geary trophy 2018

Twelve teams of Triples competed for the Trophy this year, all teams competed in the group stages, after which four  were eliminated. The competition then entered the knockout phase, the results of which can be seen below.

Many congratulations to winners gill Grindey, sue Coates and John Duhig, who took just five ends to seal their victory, winning by a convincing 14 - 2 against runners up, Sylvia switzer, Brenda Hawkes and John windust.

A special mention for Sylvia, a new member competing in her first competition and winning a runners up trophy. Well done.
