Forthcoming Events

Welcome to our Association Website !

The Association was formed in 1988 to provide a mid-week programme of Crown Green bowling activities for men and women in the over 60 age group.

Initially, membership was restricted to a few clubs whose location was within a 5 miles radius of the Fox & Goose Public House in the east of the city. Its popularity has grown such that the Association now accepts membership from clubs in all areas of Birmingham and surrounding districts.

This easy to navigate website is the main communication tool for the Association. Club Officials and individual bowlers can find news, fixtures and results first hand and much more.

If you represent a club that is interested in joining our Association, or have any information you think is worthy of inclusion on the website, please contact the Association Secretary on this link.

EBOS 2023 OVER 75s MERIT FINAL

The finals day of the Over 75s merit was played at Ward End Social on a green that was in very good condition and despite overnight rain was running quite quickly.

The first semi final was Maurice Haycock of NIFO against Alan Wincott of the Greville.

Maurice was in great form and bowled exceptionally well and made it to the final with a 21-7 win.

The 2nd semi final saw Chris Hall of Hollyfields take an early lead against Brian Yourell of Moor Lane. Chris was continually improving his lead , but then Brian started clawing his way back and looked as though he could take the game really close. Then with Brian holding 2 good bowls on a long mark , Chris found a winning shot and then went on again to win 21-16.

The final was nip and tuck all the way through the game, both players trying the marks they were successful on in the semis. It was always looking like it would be a close finish and at 19 across Chris lead out and with 3 bowls sent it was difficult to see who was counting, then Maurice came in with the winner and just touched the jack towards his other bowl also to count 2 and take the title 21-19.

It was a great final with superb bowling .

Well done to Maurice and thank you to Fred Tovey and Ward End Social for making us very welcome. ebos2023

TREBLE COMPLETED !!!!

The East Birmingham Over 60s Representative team finished this season's fixtures with an outstanding performance against the very strong Dudley and District League.

This fixture has had disasterous results in the past and could be the first time we have ever beaten them.

BUT WHAT A WIN.

At Banbury we had 8 winners and a convincing 50 shot win.

Amazingly away at Langley we had a fantastic 11 winners and managed a 3 figure win of exactly 100 shots.

Thanks to every person involved in all 3 matches this year and to our captains Tony Freeth and Chris Hall for their very hard work to enable us to get these great results.

Once again thank you to Banbury Bowling Club for the use of their green and another superb buffet.

TONY FREETH AND TONY AUBURY WIN THE PAIRS MERIT AGAIN !!! (released 210 days ago)
Page Top

2023 EBOS PAIRS MERIT

The finals of the Pairs Merit were played on a very damp Monday morning at Erdington Conservative Club.

A lot of overnight rain stopped just in time for the green to be prepared and play was possible.

The first Semi final saw Peter Graham and Mike Jenkins of Boldmere St. Miichaels take a massive 11-0 lead against Moor Lanes Brian Yourell and Paul Smith.

This lead went to 16-4 before Brian and Paul staged a big comeback.

At 20-15 down the Laners lay 4 on in the corners, but Peter found a great bowl to pick the jack up for game.

Coleshill Social pair of Bob Jones and Dave Morris also took an early lead of 7-1 in the other Semi final. Then Tony Freeth and Tony Aubury of the Brookhill picked up the weight of the green and went to 18-7 up before eventually winning to 12.

So the 2022 winners from the Brookhill were in the final again looking to retain their title.

They continued to play very tight and consistently and it proved too much for Peter and Mike.

The 2 Tonys won 21-6 and deservedly won the pairs merit again.

Thanks to ERDINGTON CONS for the use of the green.

This year's over 75s Merit Final was held at Boldmere St Michaels on a green that was in great condition and had been watered as needed to be during this dry spell, so was a little holding on the day.
The semi finals were both close games with good bowling . Alan Wincott of the Greville gave Bill Hackett ( Bradford Arms) a tough game but Bill went into the final with a 21-18 win. In the other semi-final, Dave Calthorpe of NIFO managed to get home with a good display against a battling Robert Crook from Streetly Meths, 21-15.
So Dave who had won this trophy on the last 2 occasions was hoping for a hatrick of wins and bowled superbly with perfect weight to take a massive 17-6 lead...Bill then won the jack and changed the length completely, bowling almost full corners over the crown.
This proved to be successful as he pulled back to just lead, but Dave fought back again and the game went down to the last end and Bill Hackett took the title with a 21-20 win.
A thrilling game for the spectators to enjoy....well played to all of the players and congratulations to Bill Hackett.
Mr Ken Rose of NIFO who again generously sponsored this competition attended and presented all 4 finalists with prize money.
Thank you Ken.

Doubles Merit Final 25th July Chairman's report (released 577 days ago)
Page Top

Well today was the Doubles Merit Final on an excellently prepared and very challenging Hollyfields bowling green.
The two semi finals were very different, Tony Aubury & Tony Freeth were always in front against Robert Crook & Frank Benton winning 21-12.
The other game saw Brookhill's husband and wife pairing of John & Meryl Hutt against Peter Drake & Mike Jenkins. The Mikes pair took a good early lead, but the Brookhill pair fought back to win 21-19.
So it was an all Brookhill final with great bowling by all four bowlers with additional entertainment of Banger !!
It went to the wire with Tony Aubury & Tony Freeth getting home 21-16.
Thank you Chris Hall and Hollyfields BC for today. Well done to all of the bowlers who entered. You are all winners in my book.
Mick Collins ...Chairman

Individual Merit Final 11th July... Chairman's report (released 577 days ago)
Page Top

It was a great day at Walmley today for the Singles Merit Final, the green was in great condition and with the hot weather, it was flying.
Four good quarter finals followed by two excellent semi finals, where Dave Smith bowling a great bottom edge mark got the better of Brian Yourell and Peter Evans
traded shot for shot with Ken Podmore to get home 21-16.
So could it get better...in a word YES. Dave and Peter traded shot for shot, no quarter asked or given, the lead changing hands until Peter finally got home 21-19.
Great game....Special thanks to Walmley for making it possible.
Mick Collins ...Chairman.

Chairman's message (released 687 days ago)
Page Top

Well ladies and gentlemen it's finally here, the 2022 bowling season, and it welcomes us with typical English bowling weather. Remember last year as we battled to make our league season a success with all the Covid issues we faced and defeated, the weather smiled on us, let's hope it's not payback time this year. If it is, I know it's another battle that this great group of clubs will win.
As you are all aware, we have a full league program plus cups, merits and 3 confirmed representative games this season.
Well done to Peter Evans and our technical guru Geoff Hunt for producing all the information on our new updated website, which makes reporting match results so much easier for all our team captains. I would like to thanks all of the committee members for their continual hard work in making EBOS a league to be proud of.
Remember, you the clubs, drive the league forward with your hard work and effort.
Your committee's role is to help steer it into another successful stage of it's development. And finally, all the best to you all for 2022.
Let's get bowling!

Mick Collins

It is suggested that you register all of your over 60 players. There is only a charge for the players used so it is less likely to incur a fine for an unregistered player if all are registered.
Late or new registrations must be forwarded to me by 9am on the day of the match.
Thank you
Peter

1, Introduction of an additional point per individual winner in league matches.
2, Self online entry of match results from the start.

Match results sheets will still be needed to be completed and signed by both captains and kept for your own records.
It is important that both forename and surname are entered on the sheet, for the reason that online entry will be easier if both names are recognisable.

Online entry will be made by the the home team and checked by the away team. If correct, by pressing the save result tab, it will confirm the entry is accepted by both teams.

The point per winner will be added automatically on the entry of the result and will be shown in the the league table immediately.
