Dorothy Piearce Memorial Pairs

The Dorothy Piearce Memorial Pairs were held at Grange Park , Warrington on Saturday 12 August, where the Isle of Man was represented by Philippa Taylor and Joyce Ogden, who put up a very creditable performance.
In the first round they faced the formidable Mid-Cheshire pairing of Jackie Ollier and Jean Starkey and made their way through to the last 16, winning 21-14. This matched them up with the reigning champions from Merseyside, Lynsey Gorman, who is well known on the island as one of our regular Bowls Festival participants, and her partner Anita Richardson. After a hard fought battle, Lynsey and Anita triumphed 21-16 and then progressed to the final where they retained the title.
