Congratulations to Kevin Westwell for his stunning vistory in this year's Andalucian Championships. Kevin has a reputation as a specialist Singles player and proved it once again with a 21-2 victory against Santa Maria's Craig Lewis - no slouch in the Singles game himself.

11th Sept 2019 - Malaga Summer Championships A Big Hit for Lauro Bowlers
The Summer Championships were held at Mijas LBC this year and the change of venue brought more success to Lauro bowlers.
In the Open Pairs we saw Paul Hughes and Kevin Westwell romp through all opposition with barely a ripple, scoring good wins in all of their matches, taking the Trophy with a typical 21-10 victory. Congratulations to both players.
In the Mixed Fours Ron Jones , Tony Barnes, Julian Thomas and Sue Jones won thruogh to the Final with comparative ease only to have Sue drop out when thier dog Buddy had to be taken to the Vet after suffering an injury. (Don't worry, he is now fine and recovering well) Fortunately they were able to enlist the aid of Jane Richardson for the Final itself, as she hadn't played in the discipline before. The slightly revamped line up still proved too much for their home club opposition and they romped to a 20-7 victory. Congratulations to all 5 of the Mixed Fours team.
A special mention to Hazel Guttridge who reached the Final of the Ladies Singles. Hazel played really well, taking a healthy lead and looking safe before a superb comeback from Maris Carmen Foletti saw her just pipped at the post. Hazel was holding two bowls for game before the final bowl of Marie Carmen trailed the jack back to her waiting bowls to pick up the three shots she needed to win. Congratulations to Hazel for gettng to the Final.
