Sunday's Bungay Bowls Club third open tournament organised by Ian Gosling saw 24 triples contest the Chairman's Shield, which was again sponsored by Harleston builder Graham Johnson.

The Blundeston triple of Peter Hurren, Ralf Kippen and Kim Dyer led their group by six shots going into their final game but lost a closely fought contest 8-6.

Two triples with 100 per cent records met. The Diss Causeway triple of John Garnam, Jim and Janet Bromley scored two singles on the last two ends to beat the Bungay trio of Richard Allen, Richard Tuthill and Barbara Wortley to take the grand final place.

Alfie Broughton (Bungay), Dick Clarke (Wenhaston) and Eddie Gaffney (Wortwell) snatched a place in the third place final by drawing their first game and winning the next two.

The second qualifying group also featured a trio of triples going into their last game with 100 per cent records. All three won their final games so shot difference became crucial.

By winning their last game 24-0 the Lowestoft Railway triple of Jim Palmer, Sue and Peter Woodgate held on to top spot by a comfortable 39 shots.

The unlucky triple that lost out included two of their team mates, Russell Garrod and John Ward who were playing with Kessingland's Peter Burch. Though they had a shot difference of 21 they had scored one less shot than the Fressingfield trio of Morris Eldridge, Ruby George and June Hopper who also had a shot difference of 21 and were therefore heading to the third place final.

In the third place final Morris' triple restricted Alfie's triple to just two scoring ends in 10 to win 14-5.

The final was also a one sided affair that went contrary to the form book. Jim Palmer's triple could not hold off an impressive display of bowling from the Diss Causeway triple who romped to a 16-5 win within nine ends in their first appearance in a Bungay tournament.

The next tournament at Bungay is on Sunday, August 17 , a three-wood mixed triples sponsored by Waveney Windows. To enter contact Ian Gosling on 01986 892892 or visit Bungay BC's website at http://homepages.tesco.net/bungaybowls club.

After seven of the 21 ends the scores were level at five apiece. By the halfway stage the Eye duo led 14-6 and they raced away to win 25-8.
