Congratulations to Peter Schofield on winning this year’s HRUFC Bowling Club’s Men’s Merit competition. At 82 years of age Peter has become the oldest ever club champion. Having defeated two times winner, Mark Birch, 21 points to 19 in an exciting semi-final he maintained his good form in the final match.
In, what spectators felt, was the best ever match played on the Lockwood Park green he beat 2019 champion, Abdul Khalil, 21 20 in a thrilling game, in which the standard of bowling was second to none.
After the final, bowling section chairman, Brian Stephenson, invited Peter’s proud, 7 year old grandson Oliver, onto the green to present the trophy to his grandad.
Well Done Peter!
