Cup joy for Sudbury pair
Two Sudbury ladies were winners in the first part of the two-event mini finals of the Suffolk County Bowls competition held at the Borough of Eye Bowls Club.
Playing in the over-55s’ Singles semi-final, Jacqui Edgar beat Sue Westgate (Holywells, Ipswich) 21-17 to go through to the final later in the day.
Her opponent, Pat Jolly, also from Holywells, battled hard in a long and exciting game, but it was the Sudbury player who came out on top, 21-16, to take the cup.
Also being played were the preliminary rounds of the County Novice Cup, with Susan Monkman representing Sudbury Bowls Club.
Her opponent, Maria Brookes from the California Club, Ipswich, was no match for the Sudbury player who won easily 21-7.
Monkman now goes through to the semi-finals in the second part of the event at The Rookery Bowls Club, Stowmarket for the last day’s play where Edgar is also in the semi of the Secretaries/Treasurers Cup.
