REPORT FROM OWLEY WOOD WALES V CHESHIRE
In the absence of Peter Griffiths away on holiday this is my report from Owley Wood
1.Jordan Riley an excellent performance took to his new number 1 spot like a duck to water. Bowling the corners exceptionally well came from 4/5 to go to 15/5 always comfy after that.
2.Kierian Cooper the best game of the 1st four it was level all the way until Kierian managed to catch his opponent out on a little round peg MAN OF THE MATCH
3.Emily Gowan picked up some good marks in her practise and used them well during the game. Emily established a comfy lead early on and never looked like losing.
4.Ryan Bond a superb performance bowling the corners really well Ryan was always in control of his game. Hardly believe that this was only Ryan’s Second game for Wales watching this performance you would have thought he had been playing for years.
5.Courtney Metcalfe another who used her practise well and found a mark on a edge to race into a 9-0 lead and never looked in any danger after.
6.Kelly Richardson making her debut looked a bit overawed at first but settled into her game and struck a length to mark her debut with a win.
7.Joe Langford opened his winning account for Wales nip and tuck at 13/14 Joe managed to find a mark and nailed it to run out 21/14
8.Will Roberts another making his debut seemed a bit overawed at first settled into his game well and only his failure to make two on a couple of occasions cost him the game. Can be well pleased with his performance.
9.Courtney Metcalfe. Raced into a 10/1 lead by using his practise well to find a good mark and was always in control after that
10.Andrew Armstrong an even game with both players leading well with the jack. Andrew managed to drop on a mark in the middle of his game to take him from 11/11 to 16/11 and that clinched his victory.
11. Jay struggled with the green at first but stuck at it. This enabled him to go from 13/13 to 19/13
12.Adam Penlington. The best game of the match by far. Adam wrapping it in the corners and his opponent using short marks to the middle of the green caught Adam out with the pace on a couple of occasions.
A very good performance both home and away that lays the foundation for whatever lies ahead in the next two games which I am sure will be tougher . Well done to both teams
