I know this is slightly unrelated to Bowls Northumberland as such – but New Delaval & Newsham are of course affiliated to our body. Today under a different code which they also play – EBF – they were in a National Final at Skegness. Firstly to get there was a great achievement, the first time for them but they did not just get there they have WON the National Title this afternoon.
The title they won was the Durham Centenary Trophy (I believe 4 rinks of 3 players). The team they defeated was Parkway from Northants.
For some you may have seen a preview of their trip on BBC Look North on Thursday, so to me even though this is a different code we should be celebrating and congratulating all concerned – as any publicity and promotion for bowls in the north and in Northumberland can only help ALL of us.
Two of the players – past and current winners of County Titles within Bowls Northumberland (Bowls England).
