I wish to thank everyone who has helped me during the 2012 campaign. My team captains Arthur Ollerton and Carl Curzon. Our Ladies co-ordinator Catherine Rogers for all her hard work and support at matches and to all individuals who turned out to support us throughout the season and helped greatly when called upon especially the reserves for their patience and help with measuring, programme selling and raffles. Thanks to all the bowling clubs who accommodated us in our matches and did their best to make us welcome. But mainly a big thank you to all my squad members who win or lose gave me 100% every time. Hope I havenít left anybody out, if I have I do apologize.
Let us look forward and hope for a successful 2013 season which will be run under the new format, only time will tell if we are moving in the right direction.
Welsh Ladies Team Manager
