National Fours – Great Effort – appended (images)

18th July 2023.

The regional final of the National 2-Fours against Kings of Torquay proved to be a step too far for the Mylor team, who had played brilliantly to make it this far.

On a cool evening, a busy Kensey Vale Bowling Club looked a picture, with activity across the whole green.

Mylor’s reputation must have preceded them, as the Devon team rolled out some of their big guns to help them through a tough match, in which Mylor certainly were competitive.  Included in the Kings team were Sam Tolchard (World Champion of Champions), Jamie Walker (World indoor champion), and Louis Ridout (Commonwealth Games Gold medallist), which makes Mylor’s performance all the more praiseworthy!

With many ends being in the balance, and Kings firing themselves out of trouble on several occasions, the match was closer than the score-line of 20-42 suggests.

Mike Diston sends the following personal message:

May I thank the Men’s National Two Fours team for their splendid effort against Kings. I would also like to thank all those who supported us. You -the supporters do not realise the lift it gives to the players.

It has been my privilege to lead this team and thankyou.
