The Express Rose Bowl played on a very tricky Mottram BC green. Again we had another very nice day although the sun umbrellas to ward off the sunny extremes were actually converted to rain umbrellas as we experienced a few light bouts of drizzle which was actually happily received to cool us all down. As expected the standard of play had to be high to keep the bowls on the green so of course our two finalists were the very fine home green couple of Sandra & David Read who now faced each other off in a brilliant final where Sandra in particular couldn’t put a foot wrong and had an excellent 21-10 win.
