European joy for Jersey duo
JERSEY'S bowlers struck unexpected gold in the Algarve last Friday, with Katie Nixon and Joan Renouf taking the ladies' pairs crown at the European Bowls Team Championships in Portugal.
It was the first time that the two had played together, but it was a partnership that worked wonders as they topped the leaderboard after a week of action at the Vilamoura Bowls Club.
With 16 teams taking part in two groups, the overall lead changed hands numerous times throughout the contest. However, Jersey emerged victorious with 23 points and a +80 points difference having won 76 ends.
