Mel Evans MBE Trophy Preview

The first ever Mel Evans MBE Trophy takes place tomorrow at Owley Wood Bowling Club with a who's who of bowls taking part. Both sides have quality and it will be difficult to call the first ever winner of the event. It starts with the men's doubles, followed by the ladies singles. The Ladies and Mixed Doubles follows, then the Triples and concludes with the men's singles which has 16 top quality ties to finish. The Presentation follows featuring John Parrott MBE, which includes a meal, charity auction and then a disco. We have two players in the event, the Castlefields pair of Mike Beer and Callum Wraight, and SCGBA wishes them the best of luck.
