Fred and Ray team up for title

LAWN BOWLS: Victoria Park's Fred Carrington and Ray Tomkins are the 2016 District Pairs champions.

The duo claimed the crown after scoring a convincing win over Rockhampton's Clem Magee and Peter Matthews in the final played at Yeppoon Bowls Club last weekend.

To reach the final, Carrington and Tomkins defeated Emu Park (Ray Burns and Bruce Owens) and Mount Morgan Welfare (David Wills and Peter Wills), while Rockhampton defeated North Rockhampton (Bob Neilsen and Trent Smalley) and Diggers Memorial (Paul Slatter and John Lenon).

Attention now turns to the District Triples Finals to be played this weekend.
