Wymondham bowls players Pat Saunders, Debbie Phillips and Chris Mann


Wymondham’s Pat Saunders, Debbie Phillips and Chris Mann achieved another nationals place in April as they finished runners-up in the county triples at Lakeside, Lyng on Sunday. But they will be slightly disappointed not to have pushed M Reynolds, J Woods and K Bridge of Bob Carter in the final as they lost convincingly by 11-4.

In the groups two wins was enough against J Brown’s Kirby block and R Lamb’s Halvergate triple to see them through to the quarter-finals as best runners-up as R Howlett’s block had beaten them in their final group game.

The second Wymondham triple of M Linsdell, A Stratton and B Saunders cruised through their group with three wins.

The draw saw both Wymondham teams face each other in the quarter-finals and it went down to the last bowl as Mann’s triple snatched it in the end win a 5-4 win. The Wymondham trio then faced T Musk’s block where they romped with a massive 16-2 scoreline to see them cruise into the final, where they came up against an in-form Carter block.

In the Breckland League Wymondham added another two wins against Watton away 2-8 (53-67) and at home to Hingham Yellow 10-0 (100-32). M Barker, A Stratton and B Saunders came from 6-12 down to win 19-12, while M George, P King and C Mann stormed to a massive 31-8 win in their home match against Hingham.
