Review of the Welsh Crown Green Bowling Season 2014.

Compiled by Mal Parry.

As usual a brief summary of the season..

1/ When compiling this summary I usually try and look for a an outstanding team performance or an individual performance to put at the top, this year I have gone for a team performance, and that team is the Welsh Veterans team who first of all achieved the difficult task of qualifying for the final day of The British Crown Green Team Championships in Manchester, and then going to Stoke and winning the competition, the team was managed by Mike Barrodale.
As in previous years the rest of the list are in no particular order of achievement, although number 2 in the list is quite special.


Pictured below is the Veterans squad that won on the final day, and below that the squad that got through the qualifying rounds.


2/John Bailey (Llanrwst) won the Welsh Senior Merit for the third time at Johnstown beating Carl Roberts (Esclusham) in the final, John is one of a number of players who has won it twice before, but is now only the third player to win it three or more times, following on from Eric Ashton's 5 titles and Gwyn Morris's 4 titles, John also won the Welsh Counties Merit all of which once again pretty much confirms him as still the top player in Wales.

3/Graham Bennett (Cunliffe) ) won the Veterans Welsh merit at the first time of asking at Meliden, beating Phil Nash (St. Asaph) in the final.

4/Amanda Nicholas won the Ladies Welsh Merit beating Jane Bowler in the final.

5/The Welsh Senior Men's Team did not progress from the group stage but did have a promising result against Warwick & Worcester who have been the best county side for a few years now.

6/The Junior team again had an excellent season and just lost out in the Semi-Final by 10 points to Warwick & Worcester, again this bodes well for the future.

7/The Junior Merit was won by Jordan Riley.

8/Katelyn Morgan Rowlands won the Ken Hardman trophy for the top ladies Junior.

9/The Ladies team won a couple of games in the groups stage but could not progress to the knock out stage of the competition, although they did get to the final of the supplementary and only lost by the 1 point.

10/Esclusham B.C. are undoubtedly the Premier team and club in Wales, but this does not just refer to their team but the whole package with regards to their green and facilities and other clubs can only aspire to follow them, they also have many youngsters who play on a regular basis on a Saturday morning and many of them will surly eventually work their way up through the teams.

On the business end of things they won the Welsh Club Championship, retained the Prestigious Welsh Counties League winning it for the third year running, they also won The Wrexham Premier Division without losing a match all season, The Cyril Adams County Cup, The Division One Pairs League, and The Premier Division Cup.
