Uckfield Bowls Club – End of Season Report

Congratulations to Uckfield’s Hilary Eason, Brenda Stanley, Hazel Burr and
Chris Searle who defeated a ladies Four from The Drove, Brighton, at Burgess
Hill to win the prestigious Gladys Rowland Cup, the third time Uckfield have
won this competition since 2010.

Uckfield Bowls Club was due to hold its in-club Finals Day on Sunday 26th
August, but the weather had other ideas, and as things turned out, the eight
finals involved were played over five days, from Saturday 25th through
Wednesday 29th.  In the Men’s Singles (Salmon Trophy) final, Guy Thornely
defeated Doug Thorogood to win his fifth successive men’s club championship.
In the Women’s

Singles (Maybill Cup) final, Brenda Stanley beat Hazel Burr.

The Mid Sussex and John Spriggs League seasons having been completed,
Uckfield now focussed on the Horam League, and their remaining six matches
resulted in four wins and two defeats, meaning that Uckfield ended the
season at the upper end of the table.

The Club will now focus its attention on remedial work on the bowling green,
and groundwork is now starting ready for construction of the new clubhouse
extension to begin.
