Bowlers seek Douglas glory
Shropshire bowlers were hoping for a change of luck in today’s finals day at the Isle of Man September Festival.
That’s after Callum Wraight and Alison Cotton both lost 21-14 in yesterday’s men’s and ladies Tourism finals at Nobles Park in Douglas.
Castlefields king Wraight lost to Merseyside star Matt Gilmore while Cotton (St Georges), having beaten county team-mate Tracy Ryan (Meloe Brace) 21-11 in the semi-finals, fell to Lyn Boulton.
But Cotton, Molly Sullivan (Meole) and Carleen Doody-Millington (Trench) were back at the same venue this morning for the last eight of the main ladies singles, while Wraight was going solo in the men’s main, facing a quarter-final tie against Davie Bradford of Manx club South Ramsey.
