May CLI Players of the Month

Congratulations to May Canada Life International Award winners:- 

Men’s Player of the Month: David Bradford – South Ramsey  

Ladies Player of the Month: Janet Monk – Mooragh Park 

Under 21’s Player of the Month: Grace Gawne – Noble’s 

David or ‘Drof’ was a clear pick for the men’s player of the month as the player ranked number one on the island picked up two singles titles during the month, as he won the big money Villa Classic, whilst also lifting the Association Cup for the second time. Bradford’s form for his team also saw him lose just one game in the month of May, at the hands of Kevin Quirk at Onchan Park. 

The pick from the Ladies Section this month was Janet Monk who won the award for the second time as Janet won 15 games in the Over 60’s and night leagues, with 11 of those wins to single figures. Janet also demonstrated good form as she went on to win the George Hawkins Memorial Shield which is open to Over 60’s Men and Ladies. 

Junior bowler Grace picked up the under 21 title, representing the Junior Island team in St. Helen’s dropping just four chalks on the day in her four games to score 56 chalks out of a possible 60. Ending the month on a high in the Junior Manx Championship, held recently at Noble’s Grace brushed aside all before her as she went one better than 2022 to pick up her first Junior Championship title. Grace will also travel to the UK later in the year to represent the Island.
