BOWLS: The Burwash Short Mat Bowls Club have come to the end of another great season playing in the first division of the Weald League. They managed to finish third, just eight points behind their nearest rivals Pevensey, to whom they lost eight points because of cancelling a match at the last minute due to the adverse weather conditions. We have also been playing in the Eastbourne Sunday league this year with disappointing results. Last Monday the club played in a knock-out tournament for the Pegeric Cup, a trophy given to the club by the first chairman and captain The late Eric Godley. This was a fiercely fought completion which saw Alan Green just beat Barry Taylor in the final. Congratulations to them both. The club is beginning to wind down now as they prepare for the summer break and outdoor bowling. They have three friendly games to play, their AGM meeting and final meeting will be their Memorial Cup tournament.
