CRICKET
JOHN Crews was the star of the 61st annual Cowes Open Bowls Tournament, which ran alongside Cowes Week at Northwood Park.
John took three titles — the men’s singles, the men’s pairs alongside Martin Butchers, and the men’s triples with Martin and Colin Worsfold — in an excellent week of bowls for players and spectators alike.
He defeated Ray 21-18 in the singles, after he and Martin had beaten Terry Webb and Fred Sly 22-11. With Martin and Colin, he took the triples crown with a 19-9 victory over Ray, Steve Lewis and Greg Pullar.
The three victories also earned John the G. J. Banks Diamond Anniversary Trophy for best local entry.
In the ladies’ competitions, Sally Burton and Margaret Haynes won pairs, with a 18-15 win over Debbie Crews and Cherry Ann Grant.
Margaret had to be content with the runners-up spot in the singles, however, as she was beaten 21-9 by Val Stevens.
All the presentations were made by Cllr Davod Jones, Cowes mayor, and Janet Allen, chairman of the Northwood House Charitable Trust committee.
The tournament organisers thanked Cowes Town Council and the Northwood House Charitable Trust for their continued support, the players, markers, umpires and spectators, and to all the sponsors and those who donated to the annual raffle.
