Middleton Cup 2022

The Bowls Herefordshire Selection for The Middleton Cup 2022

Versus Gloucestershire BA

Saturday 18th June 2022  Bowls on the green by 1:30pm

3 Rinks playing home at Weobley BC

3 Rinks playing away at Cheltenham BC, Suffolk Square


Dress code is the new county shirts.  There are limited stocks available at £25 from Clive Handscombe ( / 07957 368863) please ensure you allow enough time to get the new shirt.


To the Players, Supporters and Management from Bowls Herefordshire:

Unfortunately the venue for our upcoming game against Gloucestershire, originally scheduled to be played at Wood Terrace, Worcestershire has had to be changed due to an issue with limited parking.   There are not enough parking spaces for both teams making it problematic for players and supporters to park.  There is no public parking nearby.

Both managers are in agreement that the fixture will be held on a three rink home and away basis for 2022.   This is not ideal but all being well, Middleton Cup games will revert to  six rinks home and away next season.

Away team will play at Cheltenham Bowls Club, Suffolk Square, Cheltenham. Bowls to be on green at 1.30pm and start time at 2pm.
Rink 1  Ben Mowbray, John Strickland, Dan Holmes, Tom Holmes
Rink 2 Colin Walters, Keith Mowbray, Keith Caldicot, Mike Holmes
Rink 3 Ian Roe, Jimmy Miller, Dan Palmer, Dave Lambert
Reserves: Glyn Williams, Dave Evans

Home team will play at Weobley Bowls Club with the same start times as the away team.
Rink 1 Clive Handscombe, Jim Knowles, Dave Bithel, Ron Bithel
Rink 2 Dave Watkins, Ivan Beasley, Jeremy Watkins, Barry Payne
Rink 3 Mike Rickets, Phil Middleton, Graham Merreday, Shaun Jones
Reserve:  Andy Greenway

Dress Code, Whites and County shirt
The manager and assistant manager will be attending home and away venues and will be in contact with updates on respective games.
