Husband and wife eye Atlantic bowls success

Sport | Published:

FORGET 'Grecian 2000' this is Greechan 2007! And in stereo! Jersey's high-flying husband-and-wife duo, who have achieved many honours in the past, are fairly burning up the greens in Ayr, where they have their sights set on top honours in the Atlantic bowls championships.

Thomas Greechan has skipped his Jersey quartet with his usual exuberant skill, through to the quarter finals of the men's fours, while wife Lindsey has been in inspiring form to keep her quartet unbeaten in the round-robin.

Both teams now top their respective tables, and have already booked their places in the knockout stages, and, although both Greechans would admit they had received good support so far, their own contributions have been outstanding.

The front three who are performing so well in the men's four are Derek Boswell, Alan Shaw and Cyril Renouf, while Lindsey Greechan has been extremely well supported by Chris Grimes, Joan Renouf and Liz Cole.

Yesterday, the men's four stormed to an amazing 27-9 win over mighty South Africa, skipped by world-ranked Gerry Baker, while the women defeated the USA 25-9 in the morning, and humbled Scotland, 20-13, after lunch.

Jamie MacDonald scrambled through to the quarter finals with two late victories in his singles group and faces Wales' Mike Prosser today.

He beat Ireland's Clifford Craig 21-14 yesterday to take fourth place.
