Burnett Bowls Club member Darryl Austin, or more affectionately known as “Crusty”(due to his occupation as a baker) won the Bundaberg District Champion of Champion Singles playoff.

The final was played against Terry McCrystal from the Bundaberg Brothers Club. Darryl trailed most of the game with Terry playing some telling conversion shots to maintain a small buffer most of the game, however Darryl again rallied late in the game to overcome his spirited opponent 25-21 to claim the honors. Crusty has now taken out the Zone Title in Rockhampton for the Champion of Club Champions in the Singles. He is now heading to Mackay in October for the State Titles. We wish you all the best Crusty!
