The club lost a long-standing player this week with the passing of Jim Mulloy. He was very well known on the Bowling front and had been a good committee member in the past. We would like to offer our condolences to all of his Family

On Wednesday 28th September we had a fantastic day celebrating the Vera Moran memorial pairs tournament, sponsored by Rosa Tours and Costa Blanca Homes in Spain in conjunction with the Emerald Isle. The prizes were awarded by Seamus Moran.

16 pairs from the Emerald Isle took on 16 visiting pairs from across the Valencian region in a round robin tournament, with this years winners being Dave Morrison and Pete Bonsor from Greenlands.

Overall winners Pete Bonser and Dave Morrison.

Runners up were G & F Willshire, third R Bell & G Dowson with S & R Marks of the EI finishing a close fourth. A big thank you to this year’s participants and we look forward to a renewal next year.

The Valencians also finished last week and the Isle had some  good performances in the competition. Noel Davis and Russell Marks lost in Pairs Final while A M Gerrard, Drew Gerrard and Colin Lindgren were runners up in the Trips Final. Sue Elvin, Pat Coffey, Pat Heaney lost in the Trips Semi Final, Colin Lindgren in the Singles Semi Final. Well done to all club bowlers that took part in the comp.

It was great to welcome back The Highjackers after the summer break last week, well done to  all. The home advantage paid off with the Isle  taking the game closely, good bowling day all the same Hopefully we will resume the monthly fixtures against RBL and Highjackers in October.

SAPS is still taking place on Saturdays. As it is Oct we now play in afternoons starting at 1315.  Usual system, shoes, bowls and coaching for only 5 Euros, with a bar  Come and enjoy it all.
