Congratulations to junior bowler, Megan Burkinshaw, who was one of five selected from Yorkshire to compete in the All-England Ladies under 18 Crown Green Bowling Merit final. Meg lost two of her matches and won one so unfortunately did not get through to the semi final stage. However, she showed good bowling skills and represented our Club quietly and with dignity – so well done Meg. Our “A” Team has reached the final of the Ossett and Horbury League, John Salon Trophy, to be played 11th September at Ossett Flying Horse Bowls Club. Also the Wednesday afternoon team has reached the final of the team knock-out competiton. They won it last year and are hoping to win it again.
Whatever the outcome, our congratulations go to both teams. Although the season is coming to a close, the social side will continue with the monthly coffee mornings held in the pavilion, first Wednesday of each month at 10 am. Bowls hope to run a Whist Club throughout the winter. They also held another Quiz night on 9th September and hope to make this a regular event. See Facebook page for updates – Wakefield Bowls Club.
