Well what a day at Mansfield Superbowl. Have to say a massive well done and thank you to both the Senior Mens and Senior Ladies teams. You all represented your county amazingly..
First off, A mention about the ladies... It was their first outing as a team and only being able to take the required 4 bowlers meant they all had to play all day...and play well they did. They finished in 6th place only 46 pins away from qualification. What a massive result for all four of them..As a county we couldn't have asked for any more...Take a bow: Catherine Wills, Theresa Portman, Davina Alderson & Lyn Plumpton...
Now for the Men who did something incredible. They started the day slowly but came firing back with two massive games... After lunch once again struggled in the first game but came back even stronger than the morning and posted a whopping 1033 to finish in 5th spot and qualify for the finals.... Every single male bowler played their part today... Epic team spirit and they fought for every single pin on offer..Even the two reserve bowlers and our injured one who still came to support the team but didn't get a chance to bowl played a part so thank you Trevor Reynolds, Tony Beare & Alan Wills...
But the accolades and the counties pride go to the following bowlers.
Steve Giddens, Bob Alderson, Ian Porch, Ross Thomason, Dale Blunt, Alan Wigg.
