DEFENDING CHAMPION ROB PAXTON BOWS OUT OF THIS YEARS JUST WORLD BOWLS SINGLES CHAMPIONSHIP BEATEN BY BORO’S JACK BIRD
Exeter’s Rob Paxton waved goodbye to his Just World singles campaign today, against 20 year old Scarborough mechanic Jack Bird.
Paxton found himself 6-1 down after four ends, but bounced back with a treble and double to share a 6-6 scoreline. Bird rolled in successive singles to leave Paxton requiring a double to draw the set or a treble to win it – and that scenario looked on the cards when he held the shots he needed, however an inch perfect delivery by Bird averted the danger. But with one bowl left to play the drama wasn’t quite over. Paxton fired at the head, and when the dust had settled – counted a single and was very unlucky not to make it a double and narrowly missed out 8-7. Singles were scored on the first six ends of the second sat with Bird holding sway at 5-1.
Paxton, who hadn’t been looking himself throughout the match, unexpectedly left the rink when he still have two bowls to play on the seventh end and five minutes later the Tournament Director Tom Weir announced that Paxton had conceded the match in Bird’s favour.
Bird now lines up against 2019 beaten finalist Simon Skelton.
Their 2nd Round match will be played on Wednesday.
