Points were shared in England’s only match on day two against Wales at a rain-soaked Victoria Park.
Jamie Walker took control of his singles contest with Dan Salmon, leading 9-2 and 16-6. Salmon produced a spirited fightback to tie the scores at 18-18, before Walker secured a treble on the 24th end of play to win 21-18.
England also secured victory in the Men’s Fours, with Louis Ridout, Ed Morris, Jamie Chestney and Sam Tolchard defeating Martin Clarke-Squires, Kevin James, Chris Klefenz and Ross Owen by four shots.
Unfortunately, there was disappointment for England’s women’s disciplines, with both the pairs and triples losing narrowly.
In the para events, play continued for the morning with England’s representatives achieving great results against their Scotland and Wales opponents, winning three of the four matches, in addition to one match which was played between two England pairs.
Due to a substantial amount of rainfall at Victoria Park, all afternoon play was cancelled.
