The Workington club has completed a major double in the competitive world of county bowling.
The Fitz Park club in Keswick staged two of the county’s most prestigious finals – the triples and the pairs.
Each time it was the Workington bowlers who triumphed against opponents from the Wigton club.
Richly deserving winners of the triples were the Workington trio of Steve Cook, James Park and skip David Forster who defeated Wigton Parks Kenny Johnstone, Rae Graham and Trevor Taylor 21-15 to lift the Tom Sibson Cup.
The Workington trio reached the final after beating one of two Wigton Park teams in the semi-finals.
The highly-fancied trio of Paul Barlow, Lewis Baxter and Stephen Farish went down 19-10 to the eventual winners while in the other semi, the Courtfield (Carlisle) club’s Anthony Little, Lee McGarvey and Dave McManus lost 15-8 to Johnstone, Graham and Taylor.
The bowls was of excellent quality throughout and the final, up to the point late in the piece where Workington established their superiority, was a closely contested affair.
It was almost a case of deja vu on when James Park and David Forster contested the county men’s pairs and were paired against Trevor Taylor and Rae Graham of Wigton Park.
Again the Workington duo prevailed with a comfortable 22-10 win to receive the WC Winship Cup.
England international Forster again showed his class with some brilliant shots and he and Park (and Steve Cook in the triples) make for a formidable team that will be worthy opponents for anyone at the Leamington UK finals later this month.
