… or rather on the bowls greens!
It kicked off with the Middlesex Ladies Fours Final at Bush Hill Park, Tina, Corale, Nadine & Cathy whooshed off at the start to 13-1 before North London realised they could bowl on this rink and set to it! They pulled right back up and towards the end of the match (14th or 15th end) went into the lead by one. With great determination, the CP girls held in there and were two up going into the final end. Some cleverly placed bowls behind the jack and Corale holding shot before Nadine put another one in the count put North London under great pressure and, thankfully for our girls, NL didn’t quite make it.
So our girls are off to the National Championships in Leamington Spa to represent Middlesex.
Ann still tested positive for Covid at 5.00 am this morning, so well done to Corale coming in at the last minutes and in a pressure match. We all hope Ann is negative soon! We have the Middlesex Final of the Ladies Top Club on Thursday night at Brentham against Grovelands.
Thank you for keeping your fingers crossed for Dawn as she also managed a pretty reasonable win in the Two Bowl SIngles Championship. In 2019, she was the runner-up, so a win was very welcome and is another chance to play at Leamington in the National Championships.
Across the North Circular miles in Hendon, Dave Pitt won his quarter and semi-final in the Middlesex Men’s Singles putting him into the FInal next Sunday – also at Hendon. Only the winner of the event gets to Leamington, so go Dave, go, go, go!
