In front of an good & appreciative crowd which included Steve Rimmerís friends, Bill Roddan (Zetland) was in excellent form throughout the fine autumn evening to deservedly win the Steve Rimmer Memorial Shield singles title on the superb Burscough RBL green. The final between him & John Greenwood was a fitting finale to this year's competition & credit must be given to both players for their excellent bowling during the final, which was a nip & tuck affair until the 24th end when the scores was level at 14 across. Bill then took control of the game winning 6 of the next 7 ends to run out as the deserved winner of the competion & to take the title 21-16 playing diffent types of marks all over the green. Earlier, in the semi-finals, Bill fought back from 10-15 down against Carl Hankin (London Hotel) to win 21-19 & John fought back from 11-15 down against Neil Pye (Mawdesley) to win 21-16. The League & competitors would like to give many thanks to Mary Jenkins (Steve Rimmerís friend) & Dave Haskayne (League President) for presenting the trophy & prizemoney, Burscough RBL Bowling Club for the use of their facilities & their members who helped in the running of this competition, as well as to the league members who supported this competition, making it a very memorable & fitting tribute to Steve Rimmer.
