Kevin James is Welsh men’s singles champion

Cardigan bowler Kevin James has been crowned Welsh singles champion.
The 34-year-old postman from Cardigan delivered a first class display of bowling to lift the title for a second time.
Previously victorious in 2006, the father of three beat 2007 winner Mark Weaver, of Montgomery, 21-12 in the final.
The game was the end of a very busy week for Kevin who had achieved a rare feat – winning all four open county competitions in the same season qualifying for the national finals in singles, pairs, triples and fours.
It was a great accolade for Kevin, a past national pairs winner too, who had a rocky start to the season after achilles heel and shoulder injuries resulted in him pulling out of the Welsh international trial in May.
In other competitions, the pairs was won by Tenby’s Paul Diment and Ryan Thomas, the triples by Harlequins’ Phil Carpenter, Jarred Breen and Ross Owen and the fours by Daniel Davies, Roger Jones, Daniel Davies junior and Chris Klefenz, of Beaufort.
Eric Hughes, of Harlequins, and Kristian Crocker, of Gilfach, won the Under 18 and Under 25 singles respectively, while Barry Athletic’s Richard Bowen won the Over 60 singles. The senior pairs went to Martin Cross and Dennis Jones, of Llandysul, the triples to David Hill, Tyrone Bendle and Roger Venn, of Pontymister Athletic, and the fours to Paul Watkins, Dai Sims, Brian Jones and Ken Price, of the host club, Llandrindod Wells.
