Desborough BC hosts international match between England and Malaysia

Desborough Bowls Club hosted an international match between England and Malaysia last month.

England held the upper hand through-out the contest, but the game was a terrific advert for the sport and Desborough hopes to attract further high-profile matches in the future.

The Malaysians, in particular, were impressed with the Green Lane facilities and are considering using it as a training base for next year’s Commonwealth Games.

In other club news, Desborough’s Egham Trophy campaign came to a premature and disappointing end as they lost 90-70 to Whiteknights.

Desborough were generally second best on most rinks, however, there were a couple of winning teams skipped by Kevin Scrace and Malcolm Woodley.
