Dawes leaves it to last gasp
23:30 - 11th May, 2014

In the second tour card final featured local Lad Mark Dawes and Ireland International Ian McClure. What a tense final ensued for the supporters. McClure dominated the first set, making the home player Dawes look all at sea and pushed over the final end with an 11.5 score. The second set Dawes dug deep and end after end the shots changed virtually with every bowl. “I just felt I grafted away. I never really felt comfortable but I just kept thinking if I can scrabble into a tie break then it becomes anybody’s game,” said Dawes. “I was so lucky to get a chance to be in the Tour card at my own home venue and even though the draw was very tough I felt if I could come up with the big bowls at the right time I would have a great chance.”



Sherwen feels on cloud 9
23:16 - 11th May, 2014

The first final saw Neil Smith of Westlecot face Ben Sherwen of Cumbria and what a game we were treated to. Neil, who had reached his third final in succession, on paper looked the stronger and more experienced campaigner of the two. But the 31 year old Cumbrian born Sherwen made his mark on the event in epic style. The first set was tight all the way to the seventh end where Smith held a 7.4 Sherwen then seemed to up a gear and grabbed a count of one and two on the last two ends to tie the set, “I knew I had to dig in to give myself a chance, Neil is a dangerous player and I thought once I managed to steady my nerves I just needed to keep calm.

Ben Sherwen - the mean machine
21:20 - 10th May, 2014

Game two of today saw experienced Steven Coleman Snr of Ireland playing Cumbrian born Ben Sherwen. It was a game where we saw a possible star in the making with the commentary team on the live coverage for the event, which can be found at youtube/WorldBowlsTour, calling him a ‘machine’. Ben shuffled off the early nerves to put on a powerhouse display of bowls. “It was such a buzz to be out there, it’s all so professional and different from what you play at club level,” said Sherwen.



The Pink Panther Prowls Again
21:03 - 9th May, 2014

David Corkill showed he doesn’t just talk a good game, he still has all the expertise and shots in his armory to entertain a crowd with top flank bowling. Corkill took to the rink at Blackpool Newton Hall Indoor Bowls Club for the Co-operative funeralcare Tour card play offs. In fact he got the event off to a powerful start by taking the first game on the first night two sets to nil against Graham Robinson from Bromley.
