This is the first in a series of weekly updates from Malcolm.

Bedwellty Park Report.

Having been eliminated from the WBA cup the bowlers of Bedwellty Park Tredegar were looking to the Monmouthshire Cup to bring some silverware to the club. The visitors to Tredegar were Ynysddu Bowls Club and despite the home side at one stage holding a ten shot advantage across the board they went down by four shots 61-65. So it looks as if the only cups on display this year, will be in the clubs crockery cupboard.

Granville Hoopers rink of Ron Powell, Malcolm Higgs and Lyn Walters maintained their recent good form and soon established an early advantage, they maintained this early pressure to secure a 19-10 victory. The closest rink of the evening saw the Bedwellty rink of Les Leask, Graham Smith, Lyn Jones and Jim Davies forge a slight lead which they held onto to give the “park” a three shot win 18-15. Going behind early on, the Bedwellty foursome of Paul Fleet, John Davies, Keith Jones and John Edwards put up a spirited performance to reduce the opponents early advantage, but were unable to close the gap with the Ynysddu rink winning 19-14.

The away team secured their place in the next round as their final rink gave them the all important shots. The home rink of Karl Cooper, Terry Hopkins, Darren Bruton and Mervyn Bruton were unable to keep in touch and the Ynysddu rink took the game by 21-10.

The Bedwellty Park Gwent League side secured their first league win of the season with an impressive performance against visitors Newbridge. A 63 shots to 46 gave the home side ten points and two winning rinks. The Mervyn Bruton rink of Russell Blackman, Iorrie Gittins and Graham Pugh lost out on the points on the final two ends with the away rink taking it by just three shots 17-14. Gwyn Rogers having a rare appearance as skip led his foursome of Darren Bruton, Ron Sansum and Kevin Wilkes to a vital five shot victory giving the park their first points of the afternoon.

The final rink of Paul Fleet, Gerald Cooper, Malcolm Higgs and skip Les Leask soon opened up a ten shot lead over their opponents, they maintained this advantage throughout the afternoon and at the end of the twenty one ends had secured a thirteen shot win by 28 to 15.

This is the second in a series of weekly updates from Malcolm :o)

Bedwellty Park Report.

For their latest M.B.A. fixture the bowlers of Bedwellty Park Tredegar travelled the short distance to Abertillery and it was the home side that took the honours with a forty eight shot victory that gave them twelve points with Bedwellty having to settle for just one rink win.

Skip Paul Jenkins along with his rink of Gwyn Rogers, Ken Holley and John Davies soon opened up an early advantage which they steadily built on throughout the afternoon, they were able to keep the Abertillery bowlers at bay and gave the away side their only winning rink of the afternoon with a 25-15 shot victory.

Picking up five shots on the final end before the break John Edwards and his rink of Terry Cavander, Graham Smith and Keith Jones took a slight advantage which they were hoping to build on, however the addition shots after tea failed to materialise and in a close contest they lost out to the home bowlers by four shots going down 15-19.

In was hard work for the Bedwellty foursome of Paul Fleet, Lyn Jones Terry Hopkins and Jim Davies, the home bowlers were in fine form and had thirty shots on the board without reply. As the away rink struggled throughout the afternoon the home side built on their early advantage and pulled away. They finished the afternoon with a thirty-seven shot victory.

Struggling to get vital woods through the head, the Bedwellty Park rink of Ron Powell, Malcolm Higgs, Lyn Walters and Captain Granville Hooper were on the back foot for most of the afternoon. Unable to maintain their recent good form, the park foursome watched as shot holding woods were taken out of the count as the jack was trailed to back covering woods. The home side steadily built an advantage which enabled them to forge ahead and finally take the rink by 30-13. This gave the Abertillery bowlers a 106-58 victory.

Thanks to Malcolm for his third weekly update...


For their latest fixture the bowlers of the Bedwellty Park Bowls Club Gwent League side travelled to Abercarn and it is was a disappointing result for the Tredegar bowlers. The home side took the three rinks with a match winning score of 88-38.

The park bowlers started well but were soon on the back foot as the home side steadily built up an advantage. The foursome of Jeff Thomas, Russell Blackman, Malcolm Higgs and skip Mervyn Bruton, actually opened up an early lead, but as the game went on they only picked up one shot on their winning ends where as the home rink were picking up two’s. Despite sharing the ends the Bedwellty rink went down and were disappointed with a 21-10 defeat.

The foursome of Paul Fleet, Kevin Lewis, Graham Smith and Darren Bruton also opened up an early lead, but the Abercarn bowlers soon took control of the rink and gradually pulled away. It was much the same story as the previous rink with the Bedwellty bowlers only picking up one’s, where as the home side got more counting woods into the head on their winning ends. This enabled them to take the rink by 36-14.

The final Bedwellty Park rink also had to give second best to their Abercarn counterparts. Ron Sansum, Gerald Cooper, Graham Pugh and skip Keith Jones were behind from an early stage but made a mid game rally picking up a few ends, but as the game closed out the home side pulled away to give them a winning margin of 31-14. This enabled the home side to pick up maximum points.

In a close contest in their latest R.S.V.A. league fixture, the visitors to Bedwellty Park were local neighbours Rhymney Gwent. The Rhymney side are always difficult to beat and this game proved exactly that. In wet conditions the bowlers of both sides battled it out for the points with the Bedwellty bowlers taking the game by five shots
and a return of eleven points out of fourteen.

Mervyn Bruton and his foursome of Kevin Wilkes, Ron Sansum and Darren Bruton proved too strong for their opponents and their 26-8 win gave the park some early breathing space. However with the park rink of Malcolm Higgs, John Davies and Paul Jenkins going down by 25-8 this early advantage was wiped out as the Rhymney bowlers levelled the rink scores, Granville Hopper with Ron Powell. Arthur Davies and Lyn Walters opened up a slight early advantage on their opponents but there was very little to separate the two rinks throughout the evening. As the game progressed neither side could forge ahead and it ended with a tied score of 18-18. It was now down to the final rink to decide the points and it was the home side who came out on top picking up three on the final end. Paul Fleet, Russell Blackman, Eddie English and Terry Cavander took a close game by four shots to give the Tredegar bowlers an overall match win by just five shots.

Thanks to Malcolm for another update....

Bedwellty Park Bowls Club travelled to Blaenavon for their latest M.B.A. fixture by mini-bus, but a gondoler might have been more appropriate. On an atrocious day the undefeated home side were keen to play and the game started despite the pouring rain. Overhead conditions did not improve as the afternoon went on, but surprisingly the green held up well until the last quarter of the game.

In the early stages of the game the lead fluctuated but from fifteen ends on the Blaenavon side opened up an advantage. At the end of the game it was a soaking wet Bedwellty team who came off second best as the home side claimed three wining rinks to take the game by twelve points to two.

The John Edwards rink of Ron Powell, Malcolm Higgs and Eddie English saw twelve Blaenavon shots on the board before they opened their account. They came back into the game at 13-9 and the next few ends were shared. However a crucial eight shots on the final two ends saw the Blaenavon rink clinch it by 26-17.

Captain Granville Hooper and his foursome of Iorrie Gittins, Terry Cavander and Keith Jones picked up five shots on the first end and were in the lead until halfway, however from this stage on the Blaenavon rink seemed to cope better with the deteriorating conditions and opened up a lead to take the rink by 29-15.

Graham Smith, Arthur Hughes, Terry Hopkins and Jim Davies also gave second best to the Eastern Valley side as despite coping well with the overhead conditions they went down by eight shots.

Pride of place and the only winning rink for Bedwellty Park went to the foursome of Gwyn Rogers, John Davies, Mervyn Bruton and skip Ken Holley. It was a debut game as skip for Holley in the M.B.A. and he was pleased with the performance of his rink as they took it by 24 shots to 16. He said “ the Bedwellty rink coped well with the conditions. This made sure we did not come away empty handed, it is vital to pick up as many points as possible away from home. The front men did all I asked of them and this ensured the back men came to the head in contention on each end, I was pleased with the all round performance of the rink.”

Another update, thanks to Malcolm

It was a disappointing weekend for Bedwellty Park Bowls side as both teams suffered defeat in their respective fixtures. Playing at home the MBA side were looking to consolidate their current third place in the league against Rhymney Gwent. placed five places below them. However it was the away side who took both the initiative and the points, claiming three winning rinks and a match victory by 87-57.

John Edwards and his rink of Ron Powell Eddie English and Lyn Jones were soon trailing their opponents and at the end of the day came off second best, going down by 29-9. The foursome of Terry Hopkins, Graham Smith Mervyn Bruton and skip Ron Price were a little closer, but saw the Rhymney rink again take the points with a ten shot victory 21-11.

Having established an early lead Paul Jenkins with Ken Holley, John Davies and Gwyn Rogers in support were looking to pick up the first points for the park, but the visitors were difficult to shake off and it went right down to the final end, with it all square at 20-20. Unfortunately the home side were unable to find a winning wood and Rhymney took it with the one vital shot required, by 21-20.

Club Captain Granville Hooper came away with the only winning rink of the afternoon and this too was a close encounter. With his rink of Keith Jones Terry Cavander and Jim Davies he led all afternoon, but was never able to open up a vital lead as the visitors stayed in contention. A confidence boosting three shots on the twentieth end brought the Rhymney bowlers all square at 16-16. However it was the home side who held their nerve and picked up the vital winning shot to take the rink by one shot 17-16.

The GBL side were away at Pontymister and were unable to pick up any points as the home side took the game by 68 shots to 41. and maximum points. Captain Darren Bruton with his rink of Ron Sansum, Kevin Lewis and John Davies went down by 29-9 but could not fault the commitment of his rink as they battled each end to stay in touch. The park rink of Jeff Thomas, Neil Packer Kevin Wilkes and Les Leask were also defeated but made a spirited comeback after being down early on.

The nearest Bedwellty came to any points was the rink of Paul Fleet, Russell Blackman, Malcolm Higgs and Iorrie Gittins Despite being down by six shots at tea they started to improve and by the last quarter were in contention. Picking up three shots on the twentieth end they made it all square at 20-20 to ensure an exciting final end. The park bowlers had woods in the head, they also had covering woods, but it was the one vital shot taking wood of the Pontymister rink that left the home side with a one shot victory and a disappointed Bedwellty Park rink.

A win for Malcolm and the gang!

It was mixed fortunes for Bedwellty Park Bowls Club in the latest round of league fixtures. Taking the honours this week were the G.B.L side who entertained Six Bells and it proved to be a satisfactory afternoon. A 60 shots to 50 victory gave them two winning rinks and ten league points.

Leading the way was the rink of Jeff Thomas, Ron Sansum, Kevin Wilkes and Les Leaske. Facing an eight shot deficit they rallied to pull back and restricted the Six Bells rink to only one further shot as they took charge to claim the game by 23-9. Playing in his first season Ron Sansum said “it was probably my best game for the club being a new starter. It was great to play a part in securing a winning rink”.

After fourteen ends the home foursome of Lyn Walters, Lyn Jones, Gerald Cooper and Graham Pugh were holding an advantage but in the final five ends the away side took the ascendancy and picked up winning shots to take the rink by 28-19. The afternoon finished with skip Darren Bruton and his team of Paul Fleet, Kevin Lewis and John Davies battling out a close contest which culminated in the away rink having to give away shots which gave the home rink a winning margin of five shots taking it by 18-13.

The MBA side travelled to bottom placed Ynysddu and were looking to pick up vital away points. On a sunny afternoon and an excellent bowling surface they were disappointed to go down by 16 shots picking up only three points. Skip Paul Jenkins together with Gwyn Rogers, John Davies and Ken Holley kept up their recent good form to give the park bowlers their only winning rink. They opened up an early lead and kept the home side on the back foot all afternoon never going behind. This enabled them to claim the rink by 18-13.

The home side had the highest winning rink of the afternoon when Arthur Hughes, Graham Smith, Jim Davies and Ron Price lost touch in the middle of the game to go down 24-10. Their second winning rink claimed a victory over the park bowlers Ron Powell, Malcolm Higgs, Mervyn Bruton and John Edwards. It was back to the wall stuff as the park went twelve shots behind before they started to bowl. A remarkable recovery saw them bring it back to 15-15 after seventeen ends, but the village bowlers had the better of the final ends to take it by 23-16.

It was a frustrating afternoon for club captain Granville Hooper and his rink of Terry Hopkins, Iorrie Gittins and Eddie English. They trailed their opponents all afternoon, but came back to close an early advantage taken by the home rink. At one stage they were eight down, but bowled well to pull it all square. By the time the twenty first end arrived the home four held just a one shot advantage. On this final end they were lying two with just one wood to come from the Tredegar skip. He produced a perfectly weighted wood to take shot and level the game at 20-20. to give his rink a share of the points.

Weekly report from Malcolm

On a beautiful afternoon the sun shone on the Bedwellty Park Bowlers both weather and result wise. The MBA fixture saw the visit to Tredegar of the Islwyn Park side. The Ponllanfraith based club arrived in confident mood, seeking to improve their lowly table position, but it was the home side who took the honours claiming thirteen of the fourteen points available, clinching victory by 101 shots to 74.

The afternoon started well for the park bowlers and they had soon opened up a convincing lead. Paul Jenkins was in excellent form as he skipped his rink of Gwyn Rogers, John Davies and Ken Holly to a six shot win. They took an early lead and kept the Islwyn Park bowlers at bay. It was a low scoring affair early on, with it all square at 13-13, after sixteen ends, but it was the better finish by the home rink that secured the victory by 22-16. Paul Jenkins said “the rink has jelled together in recent games and we are playing well as a unit. Each position has played their part and we have been able to secure the results”

Skip Granville Hooper was never behind and his rink of Karl Cooper, Iorrie Gittins and Jim Davies gradually built up the pressure on the visitors. With a succession of woods in the head, the park rink took control with the visitors unable to respond. The 27-13 victory gave the home side another rink win and two more points.

Not only did the rink of Ron Price, Arthur Hughes, Terry Hopkins and Graham Smith pick up another win for the home side, but they picked a full house of eight shots on their way to 29-22 victory. A ten shot advantage soon disappeared, as the visitors clawed it back to make it all square at 19-19. At this vital time the home rink again took control to shut out the visitors on the final five ends to take the points by 29-22.

The park’s final rink of Ron Powell, Malcolm Higgs Mervyn Bruton and skip John Edwards went six nil down before they responded, and what a response it was as they picked up the next ten ends to open up a 20-6 advantage. However at this stage the wheels came off and their score ground to a halt. The Islwyn Park rink kept niggling away and were soon back in contention. The park went into the final end with a three shot advantage but were unable to get any woods in the head. This enabled the visitors to pick up a vital three and give them a share of the points at 23-23.

Weekly Report from Malcolm

Due to a clash of social commitments the Bedwellty Park Bowls side were forced to introduce a few new faces into the MBA side that played promotion chasing, Machen. Whilst some regular bowlers were attending a wedding to see two people united together, the Tredegar bowlers travelled away and got separated from any points. It was the home side that took the bouquets with maximum points leaving the Tredegar bowlers without a slice of the cake.

Club Captain Granville Hooper and his rink of Iorrie Gittins, Kevin Lewis and Eddie English came back from a seven shot deficit to level it up at 11-11. However it was the home rink that took the points as they pulled away in the last four ends to record a victory by 18 shots to 13.

Skip Ron Price and his bowlers Darren Bruton, Gerald Cooper and John Edwards staged a remarkable recovery, having gone behind 14-1. Staring a heavy defeat in the face they put some consistency into their game over the next few ends pulling it back to within two shots. That early lead however by the Machen team was enough to finally see them through by 24-20.

The rink skipped by Les Leask found it hard going against an experienced Machen foursome. With Paul Fleet, Ron Sansum and Gwyn Rogers in support, the park bowlers were only able to pick up shots on six ends and went down by 23-7.

The final rink of skip Paul Jenkins, Malcolm Higgs, John Davies and Mervyn Bruton fought out a close contest and matched the home side in all fazes of the game. They stayed in front until the sixteenth end when the home rink levelled it up. The next four ends were shared and it went to the final end before the home rink took it by 18 shots to 16. This 83-56 shots and a vital fourteen points victory keeps Machen on course for promotion to Division One.

Club Captain Granville Hooper praised his bowlers. He said, “Although disappointed with the defeat I cannot fault the effort shown by the side. We knew it was going to be difficult with regular bowlers missing but the replacements on the day showed total commitment in their efforts. Unfortunately on the day it was the Machen side who were the bride whilst we were the bridesmaids,”

Despite the wet weather the spirits of the Bedwellty Park Bowls Club were not dampened as they picked up ten of the twelve points available in their latest G.B.L. fixture against Ebbw Vale Welfare. Leading the way was the rink of Paul Fleet, Kevin Lewis, Malcolm Higgs and skip Mervyn Bruton, with the home foursome able to restrict the visitors to just six shots. With eight ends played the park opened up a fourteen shot advantage with the Ebbw rink yet to get on the board. As the evening progressed they steadily built on this early advantage and with a continuation of woods in the head they took the game by 26 shots to 6.

Having been in front on numerous occasions, the park foursome of Jeff Thomas, Russell Blackman, Karl Cooper and Keith Jones could only pick up two shots on the final six ends. This enabled the visitors to come back at them late in the game and take the ascendancy, this late surge gave the Welfare the required shots to overtake the hosts and take the rink by 26 –15.

Again it was a late surge on the final ends that decided the result of the last game. However this time it was the Tredegar bowlers who had the better finish. Captain Darren Bruton, Neil Packer, Ron Sansum and Kevin Wilkes picked up fourteen shots on the last eight ends, freezing out their opponents to pick up the last two points of the evening. This enabled the home side to achieve a victory by 67-45.

Press officer Malcolm Higgs said “ whilst there is no promotion for the G.B.L. side this season, wins and points are vital to help encourage a team spirit and provide further experience for the new bowlers. The side contained four bowlers who are in their first full season with the club and with each game they are growing in confidence and ability. This will enable them to enjoy their game and make a challenge for places in the M.B.A. side”



Bedwellty Park MBA Side.

On yet another day of heavy rain the bowlers of Bedwellty Park travelled to Wales’s newest city for an MBA fixture against Newport Athletic Club. At this stage of the season, holding a mid table position, points are crucial to ensure survival in Division Two for next season. Despite going down by just nine shots overall the 69-78 score line gave the Tredegar bowlers two winning rinks and a vital four away points.

Leading the way again was the consistent rink of Gwyn Rogers, John Davies, Ken Holley and skip Paul Jenkins. The park foursome claimed their sixth victory of the season with a fourteen shot victory 29-15. Early in the game they were seven shots down but as they have shown in recent weeks they are a competent unit and soon drew level and then started putting shots between themselves and the athletic bowlers. This enabled them to come home by 29-15.

It was a disappointing day for the foursome of Karl Cooper, Terry Cavander, Eddie English and skip Granville Hooper. Against a youthful and enthusiastic city foursome they could only pick up six shots as the home rink ran out winners by 23-6.

Jim Davies and his team of Malcolm Higgs, Ron Powell and Mervyn Bruton were slow starters and were soon down by 12-0. However a mid game recovery brought them back to within two shots. They should have gone ahead but a five shot holding end was turned around with the athletic’. skips last wood. From this stage on the home rink gradually opened up a lead and finally won by 22-14.

The closest game of the afternoon was not decided until the final end. The home side were holding a two shot advantage and looking good for victory, after a close affair all day with very little in it throughout It was all sweetness for the Tredegar rink as it turned sour for the home four as the Bedwellty rink picked up a superb five shots on the twenty first end to give Keith Jones, Graham Smith, Terry Hopkins and Ron Price a deserved 20-18 victory and a welcome two points.

Club chairman Terry Cavander said “ the conditions were not conducive to bowls but the rinks held up well despite the amount of rain that had fallen. Although disappointed to be on a losing rink, the four points was a good return for our club away from home. We can now look for results to come our way at home.”

Another weekly update from Malcolm

In their latest MBA fixture against Pontyfellyn, Bedwellty Park Bowls club had three winning rinks which should have been enough to give them a winning advantage, but unfortunately with one rink going down by too many shots they had to settle for six points with the visitors taking eight.

It was disappointment for home Captain Granville Hooper as his rink of Ron Powell Eddie English and Malcolm Higgs looked to architect a win, but sadly it will be a case of back to the drawing board as they could only pick up shots on five ends. Despite having woods in the head, the form of the visitors skip was the main difference between the sides as he continually drew shot. Disappointingly this left the park bowlers with a nineteen shot deficit as they went down 30-11.

Things were also looking bleak for the Tredegar foursome of Keith Jones, Graham Smith, Terry Hopkins and skip Ron Price as they went eleven shots down. Now was the time to send for some long handled shovels as they needed to dig deep to come back into contention. This they did as they continued to eat away at the visitors lead. By the time the fifteenth end arrived, the home rink had gone in front and were determined to stay there. They continued to build a lead and by the final end they took the rink by four shots 24-20.

John Edwards skipped his rink of Jim Davies, Terry Cavendar and Mervyn Bruton to a deserved 22-14 victory over the visitors. With results not having gone his way in recent weeks a return to form gave the park another winning rink as they lead for the whole game to set up a dramatic finale.

With two ends left to play in the game, the result was finely balanced with either side in with a chance of victory. The dependable rink of Gwyn Rogers, John Davies, Ken Holly and skip Paul Jenkins continued what they have been doing for most of the season as they got in front of their opponents early on. They never allowed them to take the lead and took the rink by five shots 21-16, to take the parks third winning rink. However the earlier defeat was a big gap to make up and it was the Pontypool based side who claimed victory by 80 shots to 78.

Club press officer Malcolm Higgs said “three winning rinks should have been enough to give us victory, but a nineteen shot deficit is a lot to carry. The side responded well despite this disappointment. The Ron Price rink did a remarkable job to come back and with four ends to play across the green we were actually in front. With just two games to play we have to continue to pick up points to maintain our status”.

Thanks to Malcolm for his weekly update...

It’s been a busy time at Bedwellty Park Bowls Club recently as the Tredegar side catches up on postponed fixtures. The latest home GBL fixture brought a morale boosting evening victory and nine points as the visitors Abercarn were defeated by seven shots

Skip Malcolm Higgs and his rink of Kevin Wilkes, Mervyn Bruton and Terry Cavendar opened up an early lead in what turned out to be a close and low scoring game, The visitors came back in the middle section of the game and at the end there was nothing between the rinks as the game ended 11-11.

GBL captain Darren Bruton with Keith Jones, Ron Sansum and Gerald Cooper also had a close encounter but at the end of another close affair it was the Abercarn rink who took it by three shots on the final end.

It was left to the rink of Ken Holly, Kevin Lewis, Paul Fleet and Les Leask to give the park the vital winning rink and the winning points. They edged out the visitors early on and continued to build on this lead taking the rink in the end by 21-11.

It will go down to the wire for the MBA side as they seek to maintain their Division Two status for next season. With five clubs grouped together at the lower end of the table, points are vital as three will make the drop. It couldn’t have been a more difficult task for the park bowlers as they travelled to Chepstow in search of those vital points. The home side are undefeated at home this season and are in contention for promotion. Unfortunately for the park bowlers they returned home like a broken pencil “pointless” as the home side took all four rinks and a maximum fourteen points to boost their promotion surge.

Captain Granville Hooper came closest to any points, his rink of Terry Cavendar, Eddie English and Ron Powell battled all afternoon with the lead changing hands each end. But it was the Chepstow rink that had the better of the final five ends taking the rink by 16-13. Another close rink also saw the Bedwellty bowlers edged out in the final ends. Ron Price, Graham Smith, Les Leask and Terry Hopkins cut back on an early lead by the hosts but eventually went down by 19-13.

It was a case of Que Sera Sera and no joy for the park rink of Malcolm Higgs, Lyn Walters. Mervyn Bruton and John Edwards. Despite their best efforts everything went the way of the Chepstow rink and it was an afternoon best forgotten for the park rink as they went down by twenty shots.

The final MBA game of the season will decide the destiny of the Park bowlers for next season. It will be a difficult task against promotion chasing Abergavenny at home. The park bowlers will need to dig deep and bring out all their experience to secure a home victory and Division Two survival.

Keep 'em coming Malcolm!

Bedwellty Park Bowls Club have now completed their games in the MBA and following their final game, at home to promotion contenders Abergavenny they have to wait on the results of other matches to know if they will maintain their place in Division Two for next season. Eight points would have given them safety but it proved a frustrating afternoon as they battled for those vital rink wins and points.

The in form rink of Gwyn Rogers, John Davies, Ken Holly and skip Paul Jenkins had a close encounter for the first ten ends of their game, but the visitors went ahead at the half way stage. In recent games this rink has been able to stamp their authority, but it was the Abergavenny side that posted the better finish and took the game 21-14.

The parks first points should have been secured when the rink of Malcolm Higgs, Graham Smith, Terry Cavendar and Ron Price opened up a lead of 16-3 after eleven ends. From this stage on it was the visitors who dominated as the home side struggled to get early woods from the front men into the head. They pulled it back to 17-17 as the home rink score stood still. However a mini rally, with Skip Ron Price drawing some excellent shots saw the home team go in front 21-18, but the visitors weren’t finished as they again came back to level it up 23-23 with one end to play, This final end went to the away rink as they picked up two shots.

The rink of Darren Bruton, Mervyn Bruton, Les Leask and Jim Davies were soon down by twelve shots as the Avenue Road side opened up a healthy lead. The park rink came back mid game, but the early deficit proved too much to pull back and this gave another two points to the visitors with a 27-11 win.

The park were now a long way from the eight points they were looking for and it was left to the final rink to salvage something from the game. The rink of Ron Powell, Lyn Walters, Keith Jones and Granville Hooper gave the Tredegar bowlers their only points of the afternoon They opened up a twelve shot advantage after seven ends only to see the away side take ten shots in three ends. The home rink came back to take the next four ends with just one shot on each. This mini revival brought out the best in Bedwellty rink as they closed the final ends to take it by 23-17.

With Abergavenny taking the game by 90-71 the only thing the Tredegar side can do is wait on the remaining games. Their destiny was in their own hands but they will now have to rely on others.

The last report of the session from Malcolm.

Thanks for all the updates :o)




The end of the season brought disappointment for the MBA side at Bedwellty Park Bowls Club. Having finished their own programme they waited for the completion of other league games before knowing if they would survive in Division Two. Unfortunately for the Tredegar side, Belle Vue Newport took the required points on their visit to Newport Athletic club and staged an escape leaving the “park” bowlers demoted by just one point. However it was not all doom and gloom for the club as the GBL side finished the season with a flourish, recording two victories in their final re-arranged games. The visit to Bailey Park Abergavenny saw the side achieve a narrow five shot victory and come away with eight points.

Skip Les Leask and his rink of Paul Fleet, Neil Packer and Kevin Wilkes gave the visitors the breathing space they needed, despite dropping five shots on the second end. From this stage on they put woods in the head and came away with a 19-9 win. Captain for the day Ken Holly with support from John Davies, Iorrie Gittins and Gerald Cooper battled all afternoon for the points but the home rink came out on top by just three shots. The final Bedwellty rink of Karl Cooper, Russell Blackman, Ron Sansum and Mervyn Bruton had levelled it up by the twentieth end but two shots on the final end gave the Abergavenny rink a win by 14-12.

The final game of the season saw the Tredegar bowlers visit near rivals and friends Ebbw Vale Welfare. Les Leask continued his weekend form as with Paul Fleet, Darren Bruton and Kevin Wilkes he took an early lead. The home side came back but a five shot pick up on the fourteenth end opened up a gap. The Tredegar rink took the game by 22-9. Skip Terry Hopkins also opened up an early lead with his rink of Gerald Cooper, Mervyn Bruton and Keith Jones. This early advantage paid dividends as the Tredegar foursome took the rink by 23-11.

The final rink of Karl Copper, Ron Powell, Granville Hooper and Malcolm Higgs opened up an eight shot advantage before the Ebbw Vale rink responded. The welfare side kept niggling away at the lead and by the time the final two ends arrived it was all square. The home side had the better of these last ends and took the rink by 16-11.
This gave the park bowlers ten points with a 56-36 win and a mid table final position.

Club press officer Malcolm Higgs said “Yes, demotion for our MBA side is a disappointment, but the club are confident they can re- group and mount a challenge next season. The loss of experienced bowlers through retirement and unavailability hasn’t helped the clubs cause. The new bowlers have shown excellent commitment giving their all for the club and improving with each game. There has been a great team spirit in a difficult season. We will need to encourage the game in the town to ensure next year can be a successful one. We can point to individual games where points were dropped which might have saved our Division Two status, but at the end of the day we win as a team and we have been demoted as a team and we will be back for the start of next season as a team”.
