Another great day for Chris Mitchell

Chris Mitchell from Purton BC had another great day of bowls yesterday in this time in the Ladies 2 Wood reaching the semi-final. In her first round match against Victoria Symons from Northumberland she won 15 – 11 to set up a second round match against Jacqueline Devitt from Norfolk where she had a convincing 17 – 8 win. Chris’s quarter final match wasn’t so straight forward as she had to battle to a 16 – 15 victory after an extra end which set up a semi-final match against Katherine Hawes of Oxford City & County and although Chris was in the match all the way through she narrowly lost 14 – 11. Chris will be in action again on Thursday when she will be playing in the Mixed Pairs.

In other matches played yesterday Julie Jones of Purton lost her 2 Wood single match 15-10 against Sue Allen of Yorkshire whilst Pamela Lambshead from Mere BC won a close first round match against Lorna Efde from Buckinghamshire 21 – 20, Kyle Anderson from Royal Wootton Bassett had a tough first round match against England International Sam Tolchard losing 15 – 10 (Sam went on to win the title) and Wayne Snook from Holt won his Preliminary round match 16 – 9 against Michael Stone of Sussex before losing his second round match against Rodney Morrison from Surrey 14 – 11.
