Bowls In Focus : February 2011
24 Bowls In Focus Brighton international Lee Schraner played his last bowl with a weighted draw over the full distance, when two-down on the last end of the three-end final. He pushed out the shot bowl and rolled onto the jack for one-up, and the prize-money. It was the shot you’d expect of the legendary Glyn Bosisto, who’s name it was on the shield the players were competing for at Kew Heights on Australia-Day. Losing skip, Paul Wintrip from the host club, and his rink could only stare in amazement as Schraner nominated the forehand shot, then walked to the mat and delivered it perfectly in front of a huge gallery. It was breathtaking stuff. It was a fine victory for the composite side of Brigh- ton teammates Lee Schraner and Peter Gawthorne along with Armadale’s Graeme Spencer and John O’Donnell. It was the first ‘Glyn Bosisto Shield’ tournament to be held at Kew Heights on Australia Day and attracted a ‘full-house’ of 42 fours combinations, including a star- studded line-up of high profile Premier Division and state champions. The great Bosisto’s son Jon donated the shield and reminded the 200-strong luncheon crowd about how his late father came to acquire the tag of ‘The Bradman of Bowl’s, which is certainly not misplaced, - as it is un- likely anyone will ever achieve what he did in Australian bowls during his lifetime, as was the case with the late great Don Bradman.
