Cross bowlers im­press

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

THERE were some ex­cel­lent per­for­mances from Ger­rards Cross bowlers at the re­cent cham­pi­onships held in Leam­ing­ton Spa.

Court­ney Har­vey is the new Eng­land U18 fe­male sin­gles champion, beat­ing her op­po­nent from Not­ting­hamshire in a close-fought fi­nal.

It is a re­mark­able achieve­ment for the Ger­rards Cross young­ster and proves that bowls is also a sport for the younger fra­ter­nity.

Ger­rards Cross has tra­di­tion­ally had a very strong men’s team and this year proved no ex­cep­tion where the two fours be­came the English na­tional cham­pi­ons.

The team came back from the brink in the semi-fi­nal to de­feat a team from Sur­rey and purred their way to vic­tory in the fi­nal against a side from Hert­ford­shire, cheered on by a large trav­el­ling band of sup­port­ers.

The photo shows the vic­tors (back row) Kirk Smith, Tom McGuinness, David Ross, Richard Reid and (front row) John McGuinness, An­drew Bri­den, Alan Price, Neal Far­nish.
