Home Nations Invitational | Round Up

11th June, 2022

Day 3: Sunday 12th June

Round Up and Results

Sunday saw a Test Match between Team England and Jersey, as part of the home nation squad continued their preparation for Birmingham 2022. With the showpiece event less than 50 days away, the players will be thrilled with 7 victories from 8 matches – with the only other a draw.

It was hard to select one standout performer from an England viewpoint, but probably Amy Pharaoh would just about take that title. A comprehensive 28-6 victory in the Pairs in the morning session with Sophie Tolchard was followed up with a Singles triumph in the afternoon. Across the entirety of A Green, however, the quality of bowls was excellent and the team management watching on would have been undoubtedly delighted with the progress towards the Games.

On the other Greens, the wider International squad once again played a series of matches against Scotland and there were some excellent performances. Harry Goodwin & Perry Martin squeaked home 15-14 in a Pairs content versus Jason Banks & John Fleming, whilst Rebecca Wilgress, Morgan Merryweather and Lorraine Kuhler achieved a 20-17 win in the Triples in the morning session.
