2019 End of Season Open Fours Tournament Results


Following several days of extremely bad weather the Bristol St Andrews "End of Season" Open Fours Tournament went ahead as planned on Sunday September 29th.  The fully subscribe event of Twenty Four sides - which included last years winners The Shaftsbury Four from Dorset, assembled at the green in Derby Road Bishopston to complete for the prize money which this year totalled over £320. No side has ever successfully defended the Derek Sharpe Memorial Trophy, so it was no surprise that after a round robin competition of 96 games, yet another name was to be added to the list of winners. 

This years Tournament (which was sponsored by Marston Breweries) couldn't have been tighter with 3 teams finishing the day level on 42 points.This meant that it would have to be decided on Shot difference - but still two sides were tied on +30, so for the first time ever it had to go to shots scored and Page Boys from Page Park Bowling Club Bristol were declared the winners collecting the First Prize of £160 plus the Derek Sharpe Memorial Trophy.         The Unstoppabowls from the Harlequins club in Aberdare, South Wales finished second collecting £100, and Best of Bathurst from Lydney Bowling Club came third winning £60. Bristol Park from the Bristol Bowling Club finished fourth winning Free Entry into the 2020 End of Season Open Fours which will be taking place on Sunday September 27th 2020
