May I congratulate Gay Cooper for winning the welsh Ladies merit, Jane Jones for winning the Welsh Ladies Vets Merit And Chris Hey for winning the welsh ladies averages
I wish to thank everyone who has helped me during the 2013 campaign. My team captains Arthur Ollerton and Carl Curzon, also thanks to our ladies co-ordinator Catherine Rogers for all her hard work and to all individuals that I approached during the season for advice. Thanks to all the bowling clubs who accommodated us in our matches and did their best to make us welcome. But mainly a thank you to all my squad members who gave me 100% every time. Hope I havenít left anybody out, if I have I do apologize it was an oversight.
In the future for the welsh ladies county team I would be interested in giving my input in any way that would get the ladies the success they deserve.
Let us hope for a successful 2014 season
Welsh Ladies Team Manager
