Clevedon Bowls Club currently have seven members involved in the Bowls England Womens’ National Championships at Leamington Spa.
SEVEN members of Clevedon are currently involved in the Bowls England Womens’ National Championships at Leamington Spa, the summit of women’s competitive bowls.
During the week, the Clevedon four of Pauline Hussey, Ann Ford, Sue Bird and Lyn Palmer represented Somerset in the national fours as finalists in the local county championships.
They achieved a success far exceeding their expectations. They had three exciting victories against the top fours from Huntingdonshire (22-19), Lincolnshire (19-14) and Yorkshire (23-20), before losing in the quarter-finals to Warwickshire by 13-18.
Following this achievement, the Clevedon pairing of Laura Holden and Stefanie Branfield were one of the two Somerset pairs (the other being Chris Pratten and Margaret Dyer of the Clevedon Promenade Club) in the pairs contest.
They had a good opening win, 25-16 against Yorkshire, but then suffered the huge disappointment of losing by one shot, 21-22, to Hampshire.
Laura and Stefanie followed this by being members of the Somerset team in the Amy Rose Bowl, the National Under-31s Trophy, who having beaten Kent and Gloucestershire in the early rounds, then won convincingly against Surrey 43-15 in the semi-final, only to lose to Devon in the final.
In the week ahead, Laura and Stefanie are joined by Stef’s mother, Jacqui Branfield, in the national triples finals, and then Stefanie and Lyn Palmer are Somerset’s two representatives in the singles finals.
