THE big guns are preparing to battle it out for glory in one of the Griffin Winter Bowling Club’s top finals of the season – the Lockwood Windows-sponsored Rosebowl.
Sunday’s showdown is an eight-player shoot-out with each bowler playing 31-up as they make a bid for the £280 first prize from a total prize fund of £700.
Action gets under way at 11.00 with all players off three start, except where stated.
First round: Eddie Haigh (2) v Mark Richardson, Paul Sigsworth v Mark Bramall, Richard Brook v Peter Kain (1), Brian Morley v Robert Mudd.
