England calling for Kath and Gillian


THE West Sussex County Short Mat Bowls Association is toasting the inclusion of three of the county’s bowlers in the England Ladies team

Following a trial in July, three West Sussex bowlers have been selected for the England Ladies’ team to play in the inaugural match against an Irish ladies team over the weekend of October 1 and 2.

Ashington’s Captain and member of the County Premier team, Gillian Weston, had skipped a successful rink in the trial with County ‘A’ side player and Slinfold Infinity’s Kath Hoole, from Slinfold as lead. They won four games and lost one by only one shot. The third bowler, Brenda Jones is a member of Bognor Goodwood club and also plays for the County ‘A’ side.

Allan Tolley of the West Sussex County Short Mat Bowls Association said of the ladies selections: “We are delighted.”
