Tough Draw For Our Champions in WCoC Event

Having won their respective National Singles titles last season Clive and Janice are entitled to enter the prestigious World Champion of Champions event without the burden or added pressure of selection. This year the event is returning to the first class venue of St. Johns Park some 50 miles west of Sydney.

This year’s entry comprises 28 men and 26 ladies each divided into 2 sections from which the top 3 in each Section will progress to the knock out phases of the competition.

This be the first taste of top flight competition for Janice and she is sure to have a baptism of fire with some really big names to contend with in her first outing. The playing schedule of 12 games over 5 days with early morning starts and 9pm finishes will certainly test the stamina and mental fitness of our bowlers as they ply their trade on the lightning pace greens of St John’s Park. Amongst the more fancied players Janice will face in her group include the champions of Wales, Ireland, Malaysia and Norfolk Island. However, there are no easy games at this level and although Janice will also have a few other minnow nations to play it will be a tough contest.

Whilst Clive has competed twice previously in this event with his best finish tied 7th, just outside the play-off positions in 2016, he has some stiff opponents this time around including current world singles champion Shannon McILroy from New Zealand. There are a few other repeat match up’s from last year including Todd Prideaux from Guernsey and Oskan Azar from Turkey. All in all Clive will play 13 matches in his section over the first 5 days which is some gruelling schedule.

The Association’s best wishes go with Janice and Clive for a successful competition. You can follow their progress on the World Bowls website, or by using the following links:

2018 LBIOM Leagues Round Up

In a season where the fine weather dominated proceedings and made it possible to play virtually every match in glorious sunshine it was good to see each of the leagues competitively contested right up to the end of the season. Whilst there were a few notable absentees from the starting ranks there were also a number of new members competing for the first time who managed to cause a few upsets along the way as the fixtures played out.

Premier Singles League
The defending Champion, Mark McGreal, started as the clear favourite in this season where he had recently returned from competing at the Commonwealth Games in Australia. With the bookmakers placing Martin Paterson and Phil Smith likely to challenge for the title with top ladies Bernice McGreal and Janice Pilling not to be underestimated in the race for honours.

For much of the season it was Club President, Phil Watterson, who made much of the early running having thoughtfully played a number of his latter matches of the season in advance and racked up the points to set the pace. Similarly Pam Makin had a great run of victories at the start of the season taking a number of scalps along the way to match the pace of the President. The steady performance of Eric Maddocks, rolling back the years with some scintillating bowls showed that he was also in the hunt for the title from the outset. As the season unfolded and the form of the front runners began to emerge it became apparent that the main contenders had shortened to just a few. Whilst Mark McGreal had been imperious during the course of the season amassing a number of victories by some margin he was not immune to defeat and after losing to a reinvigorated David Quirk he followed this a couple of matches later with a loss to his mother Bernice, marking her birthday appearance with a fine performance and deserved victory. With just a couple of matches remaining the deciding fixture at the business end of the season came to the head to head between Mark and Eric. The match itself lived up to the expectation and billing of title decider with some fine displays by both players in an intriguing encounter that could have gone either way. In the end it was Mark who came out on top in a match that went down to the wire as he edged a win 13-10 to earn the vital 3 points required to retain the Singles League title with Eric finishing Runner Up. As the remaining fixtures in the league played out the results went the way of Bernice McGreal who claimed the 3rd place and bronze medal position just ahead of Phil Watterson.

Ladies Singles League
Following the instigation of the Ladies league in 2017, this year’s event saw 8 competitors battle it out for top honours. The early pace setter was Marcia Pearson making a sparkling start to her season in the Ladies competition which unfortunately she could not replicate in the mixed singles league. As the season developed there were a number of closely contested matches whereby it soon became clear that any one of 5 ladies had a chance of claiming the title. With so many close games the importance of shots difference in the final equation was likely to be a real deciding factor. Having showed her credentials as a formidable Champion throughout the season Janice Pilling found herself trailing both Bernice McGreal and Marcia Pearson with just 2 matches left having to win both fixtures or face handing the league to either of her opponents. In true form Janice managed a splendid 24-3 victory over Marcia which set up a finale with Bernice which she managed to edge 11-10 in a tense and enthralling battle which earned the requisite points to take the title. With just 5 points covering the top 5 positions it would have taken just 1 result to have been reversed for any of these ladies to have claimed the top spot.

Premier Pairs League
With 10 teams contesting the Premier Pairs league this season there was always the chance that some surprise results and twists and turns would occur throughout the year and indeed there were!

Defending Champions Mark McGreal & Charlotte Dutton set out on a determined route to retain their title but it was Phil Addy & Phil Connolly that made the early running with a good spell of form at the start of the season closely followed by newcomers Martin Paterson & Kevin Quirk. By the halfway stage there were 6 teams in the hunt with just a few points between them and closely fought battles in virtually all matches. As the results unfolded perhaps Janice Pilling & Martin Atkinson could consider themselves the unluckiest of the pairings with a series of successive drawn matches that would not look out of place on a pools coupon having figured in 5 of the 7 drawn matches all season. This cost them dearly as just 1 point is awarded for a draw. With most matches now going to form and the title race looking to come down to a head to head battle there was that under-dog moment when the performance of Win and Barbara peaked during their encounter against Paterson & Quirk as they came out on top by the narrowest of margins 12-11. Just as Mark & Charlotte thought they had secured some breathing space they faced the family feud match against Bernice & Michael where going into the final end they were 3 ahead but Michael had other ideas to dent their title aspirations as they grabbed the necessary 3 shots to tie the game.

With just 1 match remaining in the season between the top 2 pairs it was fitting that the result would determine the league winner. As the September evenings drew to a close the match lived up to expectation with some of the best bowls of the season lighting up the gloom. Having forged an early lead Paterson & Quirk fell behind with a few ends to play and trailing by a single shot they needed to win the last end by taking at least 2 shots. As the President and his wife looked on intently it was Paterson who delivered the master bowls on the final end to take the 2 shots required and claim the title in a nail biting finale to the season.

Well done Martin & Kevin playing together in their first season.

National Triples & Fours Titles Decided

Lawn Bowls IOM held their National Triples and Fours Finals on Saturday 1st September with both the Ladies and Men's events keenly contested. The Ladies Rink of Charlotte Dutton, Marcia Pearson, Bernice McGreal and Janice Pilling produced a fine performance to overcome the challenges of Barbara Reed, Anne Watterson, Win Kewley and Karen Slack to register the first winners of the National Fours Title which will become an annual fixture in the calendar. A similar result featured in the Ladies National Triples Final with Marcia, Bernice and Janice also successful in the inaugural event.

The Men's competitions had a similar theme with the Men's National Fours Title going to the President, Phil Watterson, Alan Pearson, Clive McGreal and Mark McGreal with a comfortable win in the final. The Men's National Triples Title was also won by Mark and Clive accompanied by Gary Lee. Their victory in the final over Phil Smith, David Quirk and John Kewley provided some particularly skill-full shots by both teams in the difficult conditions.

Congratulations to all those competing on the day to make the inaugural event such a success.

Reed Collects Third Triples Crown

The annual triples competition hosted by our partners Onchan District Commissioners was played on Saturday under glorious conditions. The conditions allowed for some quality bowls on what was a reasonably quick surface. The team of Mel Reed, John Kewley and Clive McGreal couldn't be matched throughout the whole competition, and they deservedly won by being the most consistent trio and going through the whole day undefeated. Clive is showing that he is almost back to his best after his hip operation earlier this year, and this was a massive boost for John having found himself falling at the last hurdle last year to be runner up. The biggest point from the day however is that Mel is proving himself to be a bit of a triples specialist, having now won his third Onchan District Commissioners crown in the last four years, with three completely different teams.

Victory For Watterson & Quirk

Saturday 11th of August saw yet another great turnout of club members for the annual Bill Moultrie Pairs Competition. For this competition, pairs are randomly picked on the day which adds to the interest, as members never know in advance who they will be teamed up with. Co-incidentally the winners last year's competition, Marcia Pearson and Clive McGreal found themselves once more picked as a pair, and must have fancied their chances! Although the competition is played in a round robin format, comprising of 5 sets of 4 ends and the scoring system was changed so that over the 4 ends a total of 24 points were up for grabs. This proved a popular change as it meant both pairs were able to gain points and if one teams bowl was closest to the jack as long as the other team had second or third shot they still gained points. The scores from each set were collectively carried forward and by the end of the fourth set only 2 points separated the top scoring pairs of Club President Philip Watterson & David Quirk and Marcia Pearson & Clive McGreal followed by Win Kewley & Mel Reed in 3rd position. However, by the end of the final set it was Watterson and Quirk who managed to hold onto their 2 point lead and claim victory and the trophy.

Inaugral Ruby Cup Winners Retain Trophy

The inclement weather on Saturday forced a last minute change in venue for the Lawn Bowls IOM 2018 Ruby Cup competition. The Ruby Cup, an entered pairs event, was introduced last year to celebrate the club's 40th Anniversary. This year 10 sets of pairs competed for the trophy over 4 rounds in which some excellent displays of bowls were seen. After the final round the scores were collated and the top two teams of Eric Maddocks & Clive McGreal and Bernice McGreal & Ina Scott were so close that only shot difference separated them with Eric & Clive narrowly edging ahead to retain the trophy they won last year. Special mention of credit must go to Ina Scott who in her first season bowling has shown she will be a force to be reckoned with next season.

Three of the four finalists were part of a group of 12 Lawn Bowlers who the weekend before made the annual trip to Scotland for a very enjoyable bowls weekend. The group played in 2 friendly matches and 2 Open Competitions with Clive & Bernice McGeal & David Quirk making it to the semifinal of Saturdays competition and Philip Smith, Marcia & Alan Pearson & Eric Maddocks reaching the semifinal of the Sunday competition. The Sunday at Camelon Bowling Club competition was a repeat of 2 years ago when Philip Smith & Marcia Pearson reached the semifinal also.

Beaver Scouts Visit LBIOM

The Onchan beaver scouts (Tuesday colony) and (Thursday colony) all aged 6 to 8 yrs had previously been to a 'come and try' session at our club and on Saturday a competition between 8 from each group was organised. Various bowls activities were set out on all 6 rinks and the Scouts did two circuits gaining individual points on each. The top two from each of the Tuesday group and Thursday group then competed in a final circuit to determine overall winner. With only one point separating the winner and runner up, the winner was presented with a trophy and all children were given winners medals. Thanks to all club members for their support during their visits, especially those that run the competition, Win, Phil Addy & club coach Clive. Thanks also to parents who came and encouraged the Scouts.

Rearranged John Ramsey Pairs a Close One

The John Ramsey pairs which was scheduled to be played on the 16th June was played on Saturday with teams being drawn to play with one another as is the tradition. The Island has been blessed with some glorious weather this summer, so much that the green isn't so much the colour its named after, but a rather dull yellow and brown, for the most part anyway! The conditions enable those to have the finer touch to show off their skills as the green is resultantly playing as quick as it ever has done. However, with the extra speed comes the challenge of negotiating some of the rinks hazzards which are exaggerated in faster conditions. Those who faired best were the pairings of Win Kewley and Mel Reed, along with their opposition in the final, Bernice McGreal and Gary Lee. There was a bit of back and forth but the multi-time former singles ladies champion and multi-time pairs championship runner up in McGreal and Lee showed why they have been so successful in recent years. They both put in a fine display to pull off the victory. Congratualations both!

LBIOM Takes On Potters Challenge

IOM lawn bowlers recently travelled to the world famous Potters Resort for some expert tuition from three time Indoor World Champion Andy Thomson, and former World Champion and current Indoor World Number 1 Greg Harlow. Our members were also entered into a rinks competition as part of the experience, and they really showed the cailbre and talent our small island has to offer. As we know, but maybe not the world, due to our small membership we currently do not run any rinks competitions, and focus primarily on singles, pairs and the odd triples events. That noted, the teams showed that they were a force to contend with, showing some of the form that won the ladies and men their fours gold medals from the British Crown Dependencies test last year. From a 72 team strong field in the competition which ran over the period of four days, the team of Phil Addy, Pam Makin, John & Win Kewley qualified for the last 16 with some great bowling during their 4 games, seeing them win 3 games and draw 1, only losing out on a quarterfinal place on shot difference by the smallest of margins, one shot! The team of Phil Smith, Janice Pilling, Marcia & Alan Pearson drew 2 of their games and put down some great woods, but they had some unlucky breaks in the other 2 matches. Overall a great result for the teams on their first visit to Potters.

Watterson & Pearson Take First Trophy of 2018

Lawn Bowls Isle of Man held its official opening on Saturday 21st April, with the Chairman of Onchan Commissioners Anthony Allen having the honour of rolling the first bowl, followed by the traditional 'spider' which was won by Mike Moyer, before the first competition (one of many forthcoming competitions) of the season the Yardstick commenced. Due to the large turnout of members, 10 teams competed for the trophy. It was a close competition throughout with our President Philip Watterson and partner Marcia Pearson (one of last year's winners) facing Alan Pearson and new member Kevin Quirk in the final. Another close match with only a 2 shot lead securing victory for the team of Philip and Marcia and giving Marcia bragging rights in the Pearson household! The Committee thanks Chairman Allen and all Onchan Commissioners who attended to support the event. Thanks are also extended to all members, especially for the excellent buffet and to all spectators for their support.

Official Club Opening 2018

Lawn Bowls Isle of Man will be hosting its official opening day of the new season on Saturday 21st April 2018. Following the opening of the club, our first competition of the new season will be contested for. The 'yardstick' allows those who haven't bowled for a few months, and those who need to transition from the consistant indoor environment to the somewhat unprodicatable outdoor scene to get back into the swing of things. It's an enjoyable and highscoring event that is perfect for everyone, particularly those who may be new to the game. All past, present and new members are most welcome to join us to socialise, join in and enjoy some nibbles. We look forward to seeing you all there.

IIBC (WIBC) Senior Championships 2018

LBIOM members have had yet another successful season on the indoor scene, with a continuation of good form for those accustomed to playing indoor, some who have partaken in their first season and one man who hasn't played for three years! Our members have shown their ability to compete for trophies despite continuing to be out numbered by the crown green code! Mark McGreal retained his indoor men's championship title. Mark with Martin Paterson just missed out on the premier pairs league following losing out to a stroke of luck in their final game against the league winners. Mark, Martin and Michael McGreal secured the premier team league in convincing fashion. And Win Kewley, Janice Pilling Muriel Cain won the triples championship title, with the assistance of Marcia Pearson, against the odds on favourites.

Traditionally the indoor championship winner is invited to compete at the International Indoor Bowls Council's senoir World Championships (IIBC formally the WIBC), which were held in Hartlepool this year. Due to Mark being conflicted by participating at the Commonwealth Games, to find a representative the IOMIBA held another knockout competition, where our very own Martin Paterson preveiled. Martin has had a fantastic return since retirement three years ago, when he left the island due to family commitments. However, our former champion returned just in time for the indoor season, and seems to have picked up where he left off.

Between 10th and the 13th April 2018 Martin represented the island competing against some of the world's best. Martin was drawn in a group with not only one but two world ranked players, world number 7 Stewart Anderson of Scotland and world number 21 Graham McKee of Ireland, along with Piet Mantel of the Netherlands. Martin also couldn't have had a more difficult start, drawn to play Anderson first! The score card went as expected, but Paterson put in a good opening performance, pushing Anderson right to the end. Martin ended losing in straigh sets, but with a very respectable score of 8-4, 8-4. Next came McKee; Paterson didn't let the loss against Anderson get him down, as he put McKee under pressure early on by taking the first set and restricting his scoring, taking it 5-3. However, the same couldn't be said for the second set as Martin dropped a 4 in the opening stages, which really was the telling point as McKee took the second set 7-4. Then came the tie break, but a one end tie break at this level against world ranked players is not easy! Martin sadly just couldn't match him in the closing stage. Paterson was now not able to proceed to the quarter final stages, but he was determined to show his class. Martin then took on Mantel, and put the pressure on him early, storming into the lead and winning the first set 12-4. The second set saw a reversal of fortune for Martin, as he lost his touch slightly and allowed Mantel to take a few shots lead before ending the set 10-2 down. So, another tie break situation! This time however, Paterson rose to the occasion and claimed the match. Paterson said "It was an incredible week and I played the best bowls of my life. But for the tie break against Graham going the wrong way, I'd be in the quarters. It was the hardest group with the world number 7 and 21, so I am proud of how I played and the achievements".


12th April 2018

A Warm Welcome At The Sunshine Coast

Hot from their World Cup Singles event where both Clive and Bernice McGreal performed quite well in their respective sections with Clive winning 3 matches and losing out on a tie break no less than 4 times. Bernice notched up a few wins and took the Malaysian Emma Sarogi to another tie break before falling to the 2017 Champion of Champion silver medallist. It was a great event for our friends at Guernsey with Lucy Beere winning the Gold and defeating the previous champion Jo Edwards in a great semi final before polishing off the hosts Rebecca Van Ashe in a compelling finale.

With attention turning to the Commonwealth Games Clive and Bernice have travelled up to the a Sunshine Coast ahead of the main squad who arrive next week. After the floods and cyclone that has tormented Queensland in recent weeks the Manxies were greeted with 30 degrees heat and sunshine living up to the local name.

As part of the reciprocal programme linking the Isle of Man with the local community Clive and Bernice were invited to host a bowls coaching session for a number of the elite pupils from the Maroocherdore Primary School. With the support of the Maroochy Bowls Club the session was held on Friday 16th March in marvellous conditions where the students enjoyed a number of exercises introducing them to the basic skills of the game and were enthusiastic learners. It was a fun and enjoyable session for all the youngsters which attracted a good deal of media attention with a number of camera crews and presenters in attendance.

Bernice commented that the pupils were so fortunate to have such facilities available to introduce them to the sport and like their senior Australia internationals the appearance of younger players at the very top level of the game can only bode well for the future.

Very special mention and thank you must go to the Maroochy Bowls a Club and the Club Secretary at this great club, John Dunne. The hospitality and facilities made available to the Manx bowlers in preparation for the a Games has been first class. The club has granted free membership and access to all practice facilities and activities for the duration of their stay on the Sunshine Coast. Despite all the rain the greens are still running at 16-17 seconds (which is fast) and is designed to get quicker as the event draws near.

The Isle of Man team is based at the Twin Waters Resort which is also being used by Team Scotland as they make their own preparations for the Games.

The draw for the bowls events has been made with the Manx bowlers facing the very best of opposition in the sectional matches as they contest what will be their biggest ever challenge. Commonwealth Games Draw

Super Indoor Season for Lawn Bowlers Comes to a Close

Lawn Bowlers from Lawn Bowls Isle of Man have shown their quality on the indoor scene this past season, and it bodes well for the imminent outdoor season's opening. Most members from LBIOM have competed in the various IOM Indoor Bowling Association's competitions over the past few months, with great results against seasoned indoor specialists and cross code crown green experts.

Mark McGreal continued his good form from last year's outdoor season and quickly adjusted to the pace of the carpet, managing to retain his men's singles championship title, being the first to do so. Mark also teamed up with former outdoor champion Martin Paterson in the premier pairs league. Martin hadn't played since moving away three years ago, and despite a rocky start with some wobbly bowls being put down, he soon found his form and winning ways. Due to the World Indoor Bowls Council's senior championships being held at the same time as the Commonwealth Games, and Mark therefore being unavailable, the IOMIBA held a separate competition to determine its men's representative at the competition; Martin went on to win this and won the right to replace Mark at the WIBC event in April. Mark and Martin came close to winning the premier pairs league, just losing out to a bit of luck in the final game of the season. They were joined by Mark's brother Michael in the premier team league, which they lead from start to finish.

Several members had a decent run in the championship competitions particularly; Marcia Pearson pushed her way to the semi-final stage of the ladies singles, losing out to indoor newcomer Lyn Bolton. Marcia's form continued into the triples championship, assisting in the early part of the competition before being replaced by Win Kewley. Win joined outdoor ladies champion Janice Pilling and indoor champion Muriel Cain for the latter stages, playing against the hot favourites of Jimmy Sansom, Paula and Stuart Garrett. Despite being underdogs, Win, Janice and Muriel pulled off a great performance to take the title.

The focus now turns back to the outdoor season. The club will open on Saturday 24th March where all existing members and visitors are welcome. The official opening of the club will be on 21st April.

Commonwealth Games Selection

Lawn Bowls Isle of Man are pleased to announce that two of our members have been successful in being selected for the Commonwealth Games which will be held in just 90 days time, which was announced at the official launch held at the Claremont Hotel last night. Both Clive and Mark McGreal have been selected as part of the 32 strong team of elite athletes by the IOMCGA panel, and they will be joined by Bernice McGreal as the team's manager. The Commonwealth Games is a fantastic opportunity to see an Isle of Man bowls team compete against some of the best players from around the world.

Isle of Man Commonwealth Games Association president, Basil Bielich, said: "The selection for the team has highlighted the high level of sporting talent in the Island, with 43 athletes meeting the qualifying criteria, of which only 32 could be selected for the team".

Chef de Mission Leonie Cooil added: "I am delighted with the team that we have selected. It is a mixture of experienced athletes and those making their Games debut. Every athlete on the team has the opportunity to show the rest of the world what a force the Isle of Man is on the global sporting stage."

Lawn Bowls Isle of Man would like to wish them both the very best with their final preparations towards the games.

Life Membership For Eric Maddocks

Lawn Bowls IOM has bestowed the honour of Life Membership to its past President and long serving member of the Club, Eric Maddocks. A resident of Ramsey Eric has made the trek into Onchan for well over 20 years and has supported the Club admirably over that time even serving as President for 4 seasons. Eric is a formidable player in his own right and has many club trophies to his name including the prestigious Ruby Cup sponsored by Onchan Commissioners for the recent 40 Years Anniversary of the Association. Eric has also represented the Island internationally and was part of the gold medal winning rink at the recent British Crown Dependencies Test Series in Guernsey. The honour was granted at the A.G.M with a unanimous and overwhelming vote of thanks for his years of service and leadership he has devoted to the Club. The Members wish Eric many years of continued bowling and success.
