16 teams took part in The GLL Open, Eden Indoor Bowls Club’s season opener organised by Mike Phillips. The 16 teams were split into 4 sections of 4 teams, with each team in each section playing each other over 7 ends. Nine points were available from each match and points were tallied up at the end of the day, with the two highest point scorers from the 4 sections progressing to the final.
After 2 rounds of games with changing leaders, the third round was where the final positions were decided and this would lead to an exceptional final.
The final between Ricky Gallagher, Martyn Page and Johnny Baird was played over 7 ends against Adam Cannon, Mike Davies and Keith Nicholson, and was nip and tuck for the first 4 ends, with a thrilling finish by Nicholson playing the perfect wood to win.
