Manchester Open


Well this weekend saw yet another amazing display of bowls played under very tricky conditions. The only difference this weekend was we saw some of England’s top crown green players take to the green. As the event organiser I was quietly hoping one of the crown green pairs would make it through, however, it just wasn’t meant to be I’m afraid.


So as we progress into the Grand Final on Saturday 31st July, we see a very even 16 teams each from both Scotland and England.


Group winners SCOTLAND


A Farlane / J Marshall 8 + 22
