Junior Girls Merit Qualifier

The Qualifier for The British Junior Merit, which will take place on 13 August at Gresford Colliery Bowling Club in Wrexham, was played on Saturday 25 June at Marown.

It was a pity that only three girls entered, but what the field lacked in quantity it made up for in quality. The event was played as a round-robin, with each girl playing two games to 15. It was the first year that Rebekah Kelly had entered, and her inexperience showed, but she also showed plenty of promise – watch out for her next year !

The final result Bethany Kennish 30, Sarah Quirk 26, Rebekah Kelly 11

There are several more girls playing on the island, and the standard on display at Marown on Saturday shows that the future of ladies’ bowls is in safe hands.
