Over-70s Pairs KO

Veterans League

This Friday it is Finals Day of the Over-70's Pairs starting at 1.30pm at Brockholes who are hosting their second finals day of the season. The winners of the inaugural holding of this new competition in 2019 were the Lockwood Con pair of Ronnie Manning and Eddie Haigh but they were eliminated from this year's competition when going down to the Meltham pair of Barry Gibson and Paul Rangeley in the round of the Last 16 held last Thursday. Barry and Paul then progressed to the semi-finals by beating the Skel Windmill pairing of Richard Chaffer and John Beaumont.

They now have to face the Lindley Lib bowlers Mike Thornton and Chris Doran in the semi-final. The Gibson/Rangeley pairing have already appeared in one Veterans League Final in 2022 when they lost the Pairs KO Final to Tim Poulter and Edwin Haigh of Meltham.

The second semi-final sees Brockholes pair of Keith Hilton and Dave Oldham who will be playing on their own green up against the Lockwood Con duo of Mick Cox and Peter Kain.
