The best of friends

January 18, 2017
Our Round Ten One Blue South review of the Leeming/Melville game included a report of the clash between the rinks of the Melville Magic's Matt Allen and the Leeming Lions Paul Davies, and made mention of the fact that Allen won his section of the State Singles on Sunday.

Of interest is not only that Davies also won his section of the State event, but also that the pair will come up against each other in the first round of knockouts.

They both played their sections at Sorrento.

Allen's four were well in command all day, but a concerted fightback from the Davies rink saw them five behind going into the final end.

Davies was holding six shots and game with Allen's final bowl to come, and the Melville skip was up to the task, drawing second shot and prevailing.

Matt Allen and Paul Davies play off at Yokine at 11 am Saturday. If last week's pennant game is any indication, this will be a close contest.

Trevor Barron the premier organizer in WA will be in charge of this event, he invites qualified players to nominate .

Welcome to our new sponsor Crediflex

November 13, 2016
Many thanks to Bill Brandsma, partner of Crediflex, a Company that is involved in Home Loan, Equipment Finance, Business solutions and Property Fianance for their support and sponsorship of the Osborne Park Bowling Club website.

Bill is one of the most liked and highly respected people in the world of Lawn Bowls and a keen supporter of the great game of Lawn Bowls. His involvement in our sport doesn't stop there, he is a very community minded person and puts a lot of time into coaching young footballers which includes some who are who on the edge of breaking into the AFL.

At one stage in his younger days back in around 1980 Bill was in the W.A State Cricket squad playing as leg spin bowler. Around that time he also played along side Dennis Lillee, Ian King, Bob Paulson and Pakistani great Mustaq Mohhommad for the Perth Cricket Club.

Bill transferred to Kalgoorlie with the ANZ bank in 1981, but after suffering a knee injury he seemed to disappear off the cricketing landscape. As a good-natured chap and fine cricketing craftsman, you'd go a long way to find one better.

Many thanks to John Terrell for this piece of information.

If any of our visitors are contemplating a loan please make Bill your first port of call.
