The final event on the Workies Men's Bowlers’ calendar has been completed with Les Slattery and Joe Eather taking out the final of the minor pairs.

The final saw Les and Joe up against Brian Brennan and Tom Stockton in what most thought was going to be a very close encounter.

The first attempt to play the final saw the weather play its part with the Saturday game called  to a halt after four ends.

The boys returned on the following day with Les and Joe in front 6 shots to 2.

With all bowlers handling the windy conditions the game was nicely poised at 12 to 8 after ten ends.

However from there, with Joe playing superb lead bowls and Les converting, Brian and Tom were unable to peg back the lead and the new champions went on to a 23-11 victory.
