Mandy Through to Leamington

Congratulations to Mandy Jones on winning through to represent Cornwall in the four wood singles at Leamington in the English National Championships. Mandy was assigned the Cornwall B nomination, and played Lancashire A. Mandy played very well and ran her opponent very close, going down by just 18-21.
This is the first time any Callington lady has played at the National Championship Finals. Many now concentrates on playing the Cornwall Final on September 7th at Newquay Trenance.
Mandy has also qualified for the Cornwall Champion of Champions semi-final to be played in September.

Second Again.............

Callington A team once again finished in 2nd place in the Eastern Division of the Cornwall Bowls League. Only 1.5 points separated champions Liskeard from Callington. Given that Callington lost three of their top players in pre-season transfers, and injuries throughout the year meant that a full first team was seldom assembled a second place was an unexpected bonus. The B team finished above Liskeard B and Torpoint A and were never in danger of relegation.
All in all a successful season especially as the club reached the final of the Croydon Marks competition (effectively the League Cup) and lost in a hrd fought game to Stratton at Dunheved on August 21st.

In the Plymouth and District League, the Callington team sit second to Bere Alston in the Triples league in what has been an educational experience playing on Plymouth bowling greens. The top two are promoted to Division One so further club success is possible.

We are waiting publication of the Ladies Leagues, but the ladies lie in second place in two of the three leagues..
