Duo in Affinity final

Brentwood Bowling Club’s Fred Wasmuth and Keith Newberry are through to the final of the BDBA Affinity Pairs after a thrilling semi on Friday evening 22nd August.

They were up against the strong pairing of Mike Bono and Len Chatfield of Haynes Park in a game which was decided on an extra end.

Both teams had scored 19 shots after the usual 21 ends on a neutral green at Gidea Park and the players had to contend with fading light as they went into the decider.

With Brentwood’s last bowl of the game, Keith went in for shot, putting insurmountable pressure on the opposition. Final score: 20 – 19.
