Please could everyone arrive for 7pm so we can get drinks and start promptly at 7.15pm
Our Christmas number 1 on the Winter Bowling Ladder was Steve James, but as we enter the first full week of January he has had to drop down the charts as John Leadbetter has made his move on the top spot with a 21-17 win over formerly second place Nick ‘The Slaternater’ Slater.
A recent big mover has been Dave Ball, who has swum up the Ladder like a menacing great white shark, gobbling up Ian Gill and Steve James with two convincing wins. The top 8 now look like this …..
The Clubs AGM and Presentation Night has been confirmed for Monday 21st January at 7.15pm in Ormskirk Cricket Club’s Pavilion. Please arrive for about 7pm so we can get seated with drinks for a prompt start at 7.15pm.
Following the AGM we will be presenting trophies and awards for the 2018 season as well as recognising particular achievements. This includes for both our junior and senior players.
The Club hopes as many members as possible can make it, whether you are full, winter or junior members. An agenda will be circulated early in the New Year.
The Club’s AGM and Presentation Night will be held on the evening of 21 January 2019. Further details of venue and timings will be published soon.
A new Facebook page has been created for our club. Find us at https://www.facebook.com/OrmskirkBowlingClub/ . Please look us up and make sure you start following us and like us! The Club will be posting a few memories of when our new greens were created in 2015/16

Steve James now sits on top of the winter ladder after a run of successful matches. All results can be viewed under the ‘Winter’ tab on this website. If you haven’t played a match by the end of November you will be removed from the ladder, but can rejoin at any time. Any new players are also welcome to join if they wish – just contact the Club Secretary.
Thanks to all those that turned up this morning to help out. The spiking of the grass green was hard work, but was successfully completed. All the gutters got cleared of leaves, part of the hedge got clipped back and the clubhouse had a bit of a clean. All in all a very productive morning.
As we just move over into November, our Winter Bowling Ladder has a new leader. After a rush of matches that would have tested the most determined of marathon runners, Nick ‘The Slaternater’ Slater has fought his way to the top of the tree. His tried and tested exercise regime of pulling pints at the beer festival seems to have paid off. Notable scalps have included the 2016/17 Ladder Champion, Steve James. The current top 10 is listed below.
The drizzle just started as the first bowls were being bowled and steadily increased in the early stages on the comp but this didn’t deter the 18 hardy bowlers. The 9 pairs were divided into 2 groups for a round robin.
Group A saw Angie Barklem and Nick Slater win all their games to get through to the final, although they had a close game against Eric Barklem and newcomer Mark Gibbs winning 9-8 ( Mark had to play with 4 woods in that game as the heavier rain was not helping Eric’s bad cold).
Group B saw John Leadbetter and Ian Gill just sneak through with 3 wins and a draw – they drew their first game against Dave Roper and Brian Green 6-6 and then narrowly beat heir main rivals, Steve James and Dave Hulse, 7-6.
Although the weather had cleared up by this stage, it was straight to the final. Unfortunately Angie and Nick could not reproduce their earlier form and some excellent leading from John meant a 9-3 win for him and Ian.
Steve James our Chairman, who had prepared some lovely sandwiches for the occasion, presented the trophy.
