BURLEY in Wharfedale Bowls Club recently celebrated an excellent season of success at their presentation evening at Otley Golf Club. The club had individual and collective successes with the club winning just short of £500 in prize money. Success came on Monday singles, Tuesday and Wednesday pairs leagues with promotions and league titles. Club Secretary Brian Wheeler said: ''The club has had a wonderful last couple of years with a new clubhouse, an increase in membership matching the success on the green. We aim to develop a junior section and raise funds for floodlighting.''

The club has continued to bowl over the winter months and has attracted players from other clubs to enjoy friendly but competitive bowling on Thursdays and Fridays.

Individual winners on the night were Paul Hill, Michael Mitchell, Gary Poucher, Richard Kellett and John Hardisty. Triples winners were Ray Knowles, Anthony Postlethwaite and Margery Sergeant - the latter two being newcomers to bowling in the last eighteen months.
