A day to remember!

Sport | Published:

Jersey's women bowlers, clearly lifted by the performance of their six-rink team in the home international series, burned up the green at Glasgow's St Vincent club yesterday, winning British titles in triples and fours, and taking a silver medal in the singles.

A Jersey quartet, comprising Doreen Moon, Chris Grimes and Gean O'Neill, with supersub Alison Camacho recruited to play third in place of Linda Trédant, whose mother was taken ill recently, walked off with the fours title.

Another star of the show was Lindsey Greechan, who played nine games in four days, and came tantalisingly close to winning every one of them. During this incredible spell, she played 187 ends, and delivered 423 bowls

Having skipped her rink to four wins in the international series, the 32-year-old Greechan steered Tracey O'Connor, who was born in Scotland, and Katie Nixon to the triples title, but sadly failed to regain the singles title she last won in 2008.
