ALL THE YEAR ROUND BOWLS - INDOOR AND OUTDOOR
|Posted by Peter Yates on November 26, 2019 at 4:35 AM|
Erdington Court kicked off their Warwick Trophy campaign with an away win at City of Birmingham Indoor Bowls Club.
Led by John Pritchard from Sutton Coldfield and Phil Bond from Hurley in Warks, they won on both rinks, albeit by narrow margins.
The overall score was 44:48 however which meant that they took a maximum 7 points. Their next match is at home to Coventry on the 8th December.
Back at their Bowling Green Close arena, football was in the air as 24 men and women Club players battled it out - representing Midland Clubs in one of the series of themed events, organised this time by David Ballantyne. In what may be an omen of things to come in the real Premier League, the team representing Leicester took the title - led coincidentally by life time Leicester supporter Peter Yates of Sutton Coldfield. Unlike football, bowls is a truly mixed sport and his fellow players were Shirley Watts and Doreen Cresswell, also of Sutton. Together, they beat the 'Wolves' team 28:7.
Next week, the prestigious 3 week 'Road to Santa' begins - sponsored for the second year by Star Cars of the Yenton and featuring over 30 players.
