Hunts bowlers en­joy a dou­ble suc­cess

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Classifieds -

WHAT a week­end for Hunts bowlers, with a Mid­dle­ton Cup suc­cess over arch ri­vals Nor­folk and re­gional glory for the ju­niors in the In­ter-county Un­der 25 Dou­ble Rink Cham­pi­onship.

The 18-4 vic­tory over Nor­folk at Park­way leaves Hunts at the top of the group, with two wins out two, and need­ing just 22 points from their last two matches (there are 44 avail­able) to book their place in the quar­ter-fi­nals.

They will be look­ing to make a healthy re­duc­tion of that tar­get at Es­sex to­day be­fore con­clud­ing their group cam­paign with a home match against Bed­ford­shire.

The fol­low­ing day the Hunts ju­niors took cen­tre stage with wins over Es­sex (44-40) and Nor­folk (49-18) at Bedford Bor­ough to reach the semi­fi­nals of the Bowls Eng­land Men’s Un­der 25 In­ter-county Dou­ble Rink Cham­pi­onship for the first time since 1996.

The rinks were skipped by the Mor­ton broth­ers, Ean and Tris­tan, with Ean’s storm­ing to a 34-4 in the re­gional fi­nal against Nor­folk. Tris­tan’s rink won both their matches.

Ean’s rink was Lewis Baker, Alex Wal­ton, and James Price, while Tris­tan lined up with Scott Wil­son, Lee Wels­ford and James Har­ford.
