One win and one defeat for Le Ber

AS PREDICTED, Matt Le Ber's opening match in the World Bowls Champion of Champions men's singles in Cyprus proved to be a no-holds-barred affair, with no quarter asked or given.

Former Middlesex cricketer Keith Jones, who learnt to play bowls in the UK but who honed his skills in Spain where he now lives, produced the sort of form he showed last year's event in Hong Kong, where he won a bronze medal.

But, even though the 70-year-old Jones in was in a dour mood, he did most of his damage with single deliveries that denied the Sarnian a shed-load of shots and the final 5-4, 7-7 scoreline shows just how close it was.

'In that first set, I built up quite a few counts, only for Keith to steal them away from me with one bowl - normally his last,' said Le Ber, pictured.
