By winning the 2007 league pairs competition, Wayne Ditchfield (New Longton) won his second league pairs title & his second league title of the season. Despite giving 3 chalks start to all their opponents, he & his partner, Phil Lee (Burscough RBL) cruised through the final day rounds with wins of 21-15, 21-8 & 21-13. In a one sided final, Phil Lee, using his homester's green knowledge, produced some excellent lead bowls on his favourite 30 to 35 metre marks around the green & was ably supported by Wayne who produced some excellent bowls when required including some pinpoint accurate strikes. This prevented their final opponents, John Berry & John Cragg (Mere Brow), from getting into the game & producing their earlier good form & they cruised to a 21-7 win allowing their opponents to score at only 3 ends. The League & competitors would like to give many thanks to Burscough RBL Bowling Club for the use of their excellent facilities including the superb condition of their green & to their many club members who volunteered to help in the running of this competition, making it a very memorable & successful event.
