Bowls England Men’s competitions will be commencing tomorrow with the start of the Junior Singles – with our champion (as we only get one qualifier these days) Josh Minto (G) take on Devon’s James Hampton. Josh plays his first round at 11:30 am later today.
We wish our England International Junior Captain Josh the very best of luck in his campaign.
On the results today we had our senior pairs in action where Portland’s Billy Blyth & Gren Richardson narrowly went down 15 – 14 to Hertfordshire’s Chris Sheriff & Phil Russell in the first round.
I will try and update scores from Josh’s game(s) as he progresses.
On Sunday will see the start of the Men’s Fours and as normal we have a preliminary tie where Benfield’s Alan Pomfrey, Ian Webb, Brian Rootham and Jonty King take on Hertfordshire’s Keith Ames, Gary Walton, Gordon Avery, James Avery on Sunday at 2 pm. The first round will take place on Monday am – and our other representatives Jimmy Curtis’s quartet start their journey against Middlesex A (Kevin Hill, Jason Lyttle, Glen Adams, Norman Worley) at 9:30 am.
