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.
The start of the new week marks an exciting day for the bowls as we have two medal matches in the programme.
England’s Men’s Triples team will be hoping to ensure they make the final game, as they play a mouth-watering Semi Final against Wales bright and early at 8:30am. Win or lose, they will play again at 12pm in either the Gold Medal or the Bronze Medal match. The medal ceremony for the Men’s Triples will take place at 3pm and should be televised.
