Well done to Jean, Nadine, Ann & Cathy who won the Middlesex Fours to secure a place at the National Championships in Leamington again.
As defending champions, they were the team to beat! They had a convincing win of 25-8 against Durham B in the first round but, alas, couldn’t quite cut the mustard in round 2 and went out to Suffolk B. Our other Middlesex Four from West Ealing also suffered the same fate.
Their opponents from last year’s final from Surrey, also went out in the second round. It’s not ” all on the day” for us club players, it happens to everyone at every level. Bowls is a good leveller and you have to learn to take defeat on the chin – you will always have more losses than wins!
