Due to unforeseen circumstances this year the usual league fixtures did not take place. When bowling commenced there were two competitive club competitions arranged by the STBA secretary, Paul Unwin – a three bowl Triple Pairs league and a Knockout competition, using the same format. Jarrow Borough B were victorious in the league, winning the final against Westoe at Whitburn. Jarrow Borough A finished third. The Knockout competition was won by a team made up from all of the Jarrow clubs, beating Hebburn Sports at Hebburn park. As the clubs are now responsible for the maintenance of the greens our members must be commended on the excellent commitment given and the sterling work that has been carried out. Ted and his garden elves have kept the greens and surrounds in superb condition, going the extra mile by cleaning the paths with wire brushes.
