Armagh Road Bowl Notes October 14

Philip White Youth
It is With great Pleasure to Announce That the Philip White Youth that has been in existence   Now for over 20 years can only be described as getting stronger each year. From the start off the year each club from Armagh/ Tyrone  has taken time out to spend with the young children and the results has paid off with Ulster Champions plus All Ireland Champions coming through the ranks. Our Main Sponsor Philip White Tyre’s was Always  about the youth and Rightly so as we need to keep this generation going for many years to come. Sherry’s Field last Tuesday night was the next mile stone for the youth. This was open to both boys and girls from the age off 4 right up to 14  that had little or no experience in bowling (Bullets) off Course we had experienced youth on the night and it was a great pleasure watching them help other children out in their run and the delivery off the bowl. The Venue Has an Astro Turff Surface so completely safe in every way especially with the adult Volunteer’s at the Helm. We the Northern Branch would like to encourage all Children from different clubs plus their friends ,(Don’t have to be member’s)  come down This Tuesday night 7pm  and give it a go as it will continue through the winter Months on a weekly Basis .

The Road bowling has been the main passion for the Toal Family throughout the years and will certainly continue for many years to come. Different clubs from Armagh certainly didn’t hold back in any way when they first heard that Emily needed Help. Fundraising was Priority and with Many of charity scores been held both Armagh and Cork between each club plus or American Friends the Support that had been shown was just Phenomenal. Our Chairman off the Northern Branch Chris Mallon wished  the Toal family every success in America He  also thanked The Lord Mayor for her support shown on the night and to all the clubs involved  for yet again coming up trumps when needed.
Cullen the new Novice 4 Ulster Champion
Black water was the Venue last Sunday when Ulster finalist’s Maurice Cullen who represents the Moy Road was to meet Black water Local Michael Duggan  in this year’s Ulster Final. Cullen took the opening throw by 40 yards. Duggan unlucky with his next shot  leaving  Cullen  a shot in front at the cap bowl area. Heading towards the orchard Corner Cullen Misplayed and with Duggan throwing a great shot seen the score Level. Both men took 3 shots each to pass the lane on the left but it was Cullen who once again extended his lead by 60 yards by Hughes house. Duggan now was trailing towards the bus shelter and after missing the corner found himself a full bowl out. Maurice then new the title was  in his sight with only two shots remaining and indeed took the opportunity with honours by delivering yet again another brilliant shot towards the chicken Houses to become the New Novice 4 Ulster Champion. Hard luck to Michael Duggan Gallant runner up.

Novice Four Ulster Championship Final Sponsored by Philip White Tyres
The Novice Four Ulster Championship Final was played over the Blackwatertown Road course last Sunday morning and although the inclement conditions made thing’s difficult both throwers produced a terrific final.
Cullen won the openers from Currans and bowled themself info a great position after two big shots to Connollys. Duggan already a shot out was in trouble however a brilliant bowl to open the Orchard Corner gave him an narrow lead. They matched each other shot for shot approaching the final stages and just when this decider looked sure to go right to the line a mistake from Duggan when he failed to open McCuskers Corner when well placed was punished by Cullen as two great bowls across the final straight gave him a deserved Ulster Title.
In Portmor’s on going Partner Tournament for the Barney Lavery Cup Conail Gribben and Michael Daly were in terrific form as they easily prushed aside the challenge of Paddy Donnelly and Jim McLoughlin.
Last week’s Lotto winner was Gavin Hannaway with number 31.
