    Sussex's Gina Symons secures 2017 Patron's Cup

    Symons’ success means that she is the first person to win the title twice, following her previous success in 2015



    Sussex’s Gina Symons has won the 2017 Bowls England Patron’s Cup after an impressive +27 shot difference (35-8).

    Symons’ success means that she is the first person to win the title twice, following her previous success in 2015, also with a +27 shot difference.
