Double delight for Drax bowlers

August 14, 2021

Two Drax bowls teams came head-to-head in the finals of a recent home competition.

Captaining the Drax A squad was John Barber while Jim Longden captained Drax B. The teams were each split into two, with both matches won by team B with 18-13 in the first game and 18-15 in the second. Mary Reeves and her partner, Steve Rayner, of Drax A said the pandemic brought them back to bowls following an 18-year break. “Getting to the finals certainly helped bring my confidence back. It’s been an excellent day of bowling and great fun.” Drax Club secretary, David Newsome thanked the teams for their participation before club president, Derek Cheshire presented the trophy to captain Jim Longden.
