August CLI Players of the Month

Congratulations to August Canada Life International Award winners:-

Men’s Player of the Month: Paul Dunn – Marown

Ladies Player of the Month: Caroline Whitehead – Port Erin

Under 21’s Player of the Month: Madison McMullan – Mooragh Park

Paul was the standout player in the men’s game during August, winning both of his league games, as well as both of his games in the Club Team Championship. Dunn also managed to retain the Doubles Championship with regular playing partner Neil Withers, represented the Island playing three games, successfully qualified for the Crown Green Masters at Fleetwood, whilst also getting through the qualifying rounds to reach the finals day of the Famous Talbot trophy. Dunn also took part in the North versus South Challenge in the U.K. winning both games that he played in, with his game with Phil Lee – one of Merseyside’s top bowlers proving to be a good watch for the spectators.

Caroline was the pick from the Ladies section this month winning three league games and scoring highly in two defeats. In addition to this Caroline was delighted to win the Sowerbutts trophy in the mixed doubles to pick up her first ever open win on Port Erin on Bank Holiday Monday.

Madison was an easy choice for her achievements in August as she won the Rheuben Thomas Memorial Trophy, whilst maintaining a 100% record in the newly formed Junior League. For her club Madison won both league games and her game in the Club Team Championship. Whilst it had already been decided that Madison would be Under 21 player of the month, she also recently reached the final of the Junior Girls Merit at Heswell only to just lose out 12-15 to Cerys Parry from Wales. A superb month for Madison which fully deserves this award.
