It was another successful week on all fronts for Erdington Court this week - with over 50 Club players in action.

 

The big news was that a men's squad from the Court are through to the Bowls England National Fours Finals at Leamington in August. Richard Brittan from Tamworth, Mark Ireland, from Hodge Hill, Allen Onion from Sutton Coldfield and Rob Robinson from Four Oaks, beat Gary Langford of Solihull Municipal in the County semi finals at Welford on Avon.

In the Birmingham Bowls Association's Ivy league,the Court's 'A Team of Brenda Bosley from Erdington, Chris Reid from Pype Hayes and Lorely Edwards, led by Captain Pat Court from Wylde Green were in full flight, beating Solihull Municipal 17:11 after a shaky start.

 

In the same League, the Court's 'B' team of Lorna Bournes from Erdington, Eileen Merrick from New Oscott,Terry Yates from Sutton Coldfield and Mary Webster from Walmley were playing Kings Heath 'A' team away and drew 15 apiece despite the untimely interruption of a sprinkler on the rink!

 

The Court's Ladies Warwickshire District Women's Bowls Association 'B' team are enjoying a good run, beating Rowheath 20:12, Kings Heath 'A' 32:6 and Handsworth Wood 18:11, emerging as potential winners of the League.
