Bowlers are champions

South Milton short mat bowls team The Originals clinched the South Hams League division two title in dramatic fashion at Ivybridge on Tuesday night (Mar 5).

Requiring one point to gain promotion, and two to go top of the table, the match went right down to the wire with captain Ken Luscombe bowling a perfect delivery to deny the home team's outside chance of promotion.

Team members were Bob Breese, Daphne Osmond, Ken Luscombe and Charlie Dunton (skip) on one mat, and Eric Fitch, Evelyn Grant, Graham Collyer and Brian Luscombe (skip) on the other.

The trophy and medals will be awarded at the league's presentation evening at Stoke Fleming on March 28, when The Originals will also play Totnes in the final of the knockout cup.
