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 sectional play of the Men’s Singles continues on Wednesday and England’s Jamie Walker will play Jamaica at 11:30am. He will be hoping to add to yesterday’s win against Namibia.
Sophie Tolchard and Amy Pharaoh will continue to play in the group stages of the Women’s Pairs at 8:30am when they will face Fiji. They will play again at 11.30am when they face a strong Scottish side – who are currently top of their group as they have a higher shot difference.
In the afternoon session Michelle White and Gail Platt will play in the Bronze Medal Match of the Para Women’s Pairs B6-B8 against South Africa. The pair played the same opposition earlier on in the competition where they enjoyed a very close game, narrowly losing 17-13. As a result, White and Platt will be determined to secure the win second time around and reach the podium on Wednesday evening.
The Men’s Fours, consisting of Louis Ridout, Nick Brett, Jamie Chestney and Sam Tolchard, will return to the greens to play Fiji at the same time. They will play again at 6pm on the show rink against India.
Alongside them at 6pm, Alison Yearling and Chris Turnbull will play in their final match of the sectional play against New Zealand. As with all their other games they will be joined by their respective directors, Susan Wherry and Mark Wherry. They are currently third in their group and the top four will progress to the Semi Finals.
Jamie-Lea Winch, Natalie Chestney and Sian Honnor, will play just one match at 3pm against New Zealand as they continue their run in the Women’s Triples. They are currently top of their section, so will be hoping to secure their place in the Quarter Finals with another win under their belts.
