Sun 12th Nov
Today was the first event in the British Parks calendar, and what a spectacular event is was!! (results are now available)
We saw 6 teams compete in the annual 10 a side Junior Championship, Group A - Yorkshire A, Yorkshire C and North Shropshire A. Group B - Yorkshire B, East Midlands and North Shropshire B.
After some interesting group matches, we saw Yorkshire A and East Midlands top their groups and go through to the Final, and what a Final match we witnessed. After the first 5 games on green 2 Yorkshire A were leading by 17 chalks, the remaining 5 games were played on green 2 which saw East Midlands charging a comeback winning 4 out of the last 5 games.
The last game on the green was game number 6 which saw Jacob Goodall (Yorkshire) versus Louie Furniss (East Midlands) - it was a close game throughout but the real theatre came with the last few ends of play. Jacob had 2 tremendous strikes which kept him in the game and it felt like the Yorkshire lad had the momentum to go all the way. The very last end Jacob had 2 brilliant woods and was sitting game on with Louie's first bowl sitting short, the young Louie Furniss composed himself contemplating his final move..... then WHACK...he fired and left the jack on his 2 bowls on the green.
A fantastic spectacular for all to see, a truly brilliant game of bowls and congratulations to both players.
Well done East Midlands and Louie for that courgeous strike under pressure!
