County v Gloucestershire – Saturday 20th April 2024

This away fixture at Kingsway Gloucester was the second leg of the 2024  Two Shires Trophy competition. The first leg, played a month ago, saw Gloucestershire take a small two points lead – (  19-21 result ).  The second leg, which again consisted of  8 triples teams playing 11 ends each, saw Gloucestershire increase this lead substantially –  ( 7-33 result ). Gloucestershire retain the trophy.

Overall Worcestershire won 3 of the 16 individual triples games played and drew 1.  They scored 112 shots compared with 204 scored by Gloucestershire.

In the morning session Worcestershire won 2 games and drew 1. Terry Clifford’s team had the best result of the day winning 13-2 . Richard Rose’s team had a comfortable win 14-9 and June Green’s team drew 11-11.

There was one solitary win in the afternoon session – Jim tingle’s team won their match 13-9.

Although disappointed with the result, the Worcestershire squad had an enjoyable day, and it was pleasing to see our youngest bowler, at the age of twelve,  ( Tyler Shuck ) in action once again.  Tyler in action is shown below :
