Incorporating the Mens & Womens Bowling Associations of the County of Northumberland

BE Finals - Day 5

Next up for Gosforth's Curtis was a tough encounter against Norfolk's Brian Taylor and again we recorded a 23 - 13 win. This put Curtis through to the quarter-finals and standing in our way was another Northern Counties team - Lancashire. The Lancashire rink was skipped by experienced and Middleton Cup skip Alec Atkinson, and unfortunately Atkinson's rink got the better of our bowlers and ran out 22 - 11 winners. The full rink for Curtis was Chris Brown, Les Yeomans, Bill Bolam, Jimmy Curtis.

The Junior Pairs event also started today, and our representatives Gosforth's Jack Miller & Josh Minto faced Leicestershire's Joe & Tom May. The Leicestershire duo ran out 22 - 15 victors.

The next Men's event is the Senior Pairs, and representating Northumberland is Gosforth's Steve Pallas and Richard Train. They will start their campaign with a preliminary tie against Isle of Wight's Phil Brooks and Pete Furmidge on Friday 17th August.
