Journalist for the i newspaper, Bowls England National Finals commentator and a name well-known to bowlers, Emily Ferguson will be reviewing most days of the action at Victoria Park.

England will play in their second Gold Medal match on Tuesday, with Jamie Walker and Sam Tolchard playing against Wales at 8:30am.



Walker will have a short break before he has to reset and play the opening round of the Men’s Singles. At 11:45 he will play Namibia’s Carel Aron Olivier.

Sophie Tolchard and Amy Pharaoh will return to the greens on Tuesday as the start of the sectional play of the Women’s Pairs commences. They will play Northern Ireland at 8:30am.

The first rounds of the Women’s Triples will also start their sectional play early doors, when Jamie-Lea Winch, Natalie Chestney and Sian Honnor will face Niue.

Craig Bowler and Kieran Rollings will participate in their Bronze Medal match of the Para Men’s Pairs B6-B8 at 4:15pm when they will play New Zealand for a chance to reach the podium.
