Competition Results: Congratulations to Tony Townson for winning the 2022 Club Championship Singles Final 25-23. Tony defeated Keith Whalley in a very close game. Keith was holding two shots on the final end to win the game only to see Tony play a great drive which removed the two shot bowls to win the match. Well done to both players. Tony now plays the Champion of Champions Singles this weekend and all of Burnett wishes him well.
