This competition comprises 32 county based areas, each area will play down to an area winner. All 32 area winners will advance to the All England Round.

South Cliff’s Pair - Steve & Richard Lonnia faced their first match in this event, playing against Tom & Kathryn Murphy of Pickering.

On a chilly afternoon, the match saw South Cliff open a 5-3 lead after 4 ends, from this point the Lonnias began to dominate opening up a 25-3 lead after 11 ends, the highlight being on end 10 where on the final wood a one down became five up following a superb wood by Steve. The remaining ends were more closely fought with the Murphys edging these ends 6-5.

The match was played in an excellent spirit and featured some very high quality bowling which was enjoyed by the spectators. The Lonnias progress to the next round - winning 30 to 9. In the next round they will play Stephen Stoakes and his partner from Holderness BC in Hull on Friday 31st May at 6:30pm at South Cliff Bowling Club. Your support is most welcome.
