       STEVE PASKIN MEMORIAL 9/9/ 2018


The Steve Paskin memorial took place on the 9th Sept 2018 and a great day was had by all, and the  eventual winner was Graham Liver who defeated Rod wynne 21 - 19 in a thrilling final.

The semi finalists were Dave Liver and John Smith.

Winner Graham Liver receives the trophy from Eileen Paskin and granddaughter Ruby.





On the last Sunday in April I suppose you can expect cold dank weather and as we started the first comp of the year on the Eagle playing for a packet of vintage Woodbines in the Bernard Slattery trophy, the weather didn’t disappoint. Neither did the turn out as 20 players braved the elements. Having played down to the semi finals, one half consisted of Dobbies players and the other the Eagle. Jeff Ogden and Barry Hartman had a real ding dong game with Barry narrowly winning, the other game saw Martin Mc Bernie ( a recent recruit to the game), playing handicap specialist Phil Berry. It was clear Martin wanted to banish his image of being a “ rabbit “ at the game, even if he generally wins it each Thursday, as he stormed to a 21 to 10 victory.                   In the final  Martin leads two “real uns” in the corner, Barry reaches and hits the head and claims one . Will that effect Martin, No, Head down he strode to a great victory 21 to 10 his first handicap win. Thanks to all for a great turnout if your in the Prestwich league and your reading this check out our comp dates your welcome as are the Dobbies players that were there last week.

Bury Sunday morning league

team pairs K.O. competion.






    Sundays in October have become quite exciting for The Eagle & Child Bury Metro

    League team.

    This team was formed 4 years ago from non bowlers (exceptions being the captain

    and the 2 girls Jackie and Fran).

    A great group of people that rally round when work needs doing,

    bowl with enthusiasm but in the general order of things seldom

    won and propped the league up.

     (But who cares, we enjoy it they proudly proclaim)


    So a week last Sunday ( 8/10/17 ) they proudly returned "buzzing" having qualified for

    the team pairs K.O. semis


    Onward to Sunday the 15th drawn against the 3 times and last years winners Seedfield

    with a 10 start H' Cap.

    Straight away staring down the barrel of a gun Steve Dunn and Shaun Zivkovic take

    a beating using up the H' Cap.

    BUT a gritty performance from Jeff Lewis and John Smith, and

    a win from the girls Jackie and Fran, leave the Capt Alan Clarke and HON secretary 

    Ian Howarth needing to win by 2 or more.

    Which they duly do at 21-16, and hey it's finals time. 


    Now it's Monton in the final and we think there may have been a bit of

    skulduggery as Fran and Jackies partner and husband both

    play for Monton, and the possibillity of no tea could have been at play.

    We also think Alan Clarke gave Shaun and Steve a good talking to,

    as they went on and only allowed their opponents to score 1 point.

    Add the H' Cap and hey we have a chance.

    Another gritty win from the girls and great support from Jeff and

    John and out goes the call, we need 3 points to win.

    Alan and Ian duly oblige by winning their game 21-16, and the team

    that only came together 4 years ago with limited experience are

    leading winners.

    The clubs first trophy for over 2 years to some great members.

    Well done all of you, it's fantastic.


    PS. I think the "Duck" and "Snowy" did get their tea after all !
