UPPER WAVENEY LEAGUES 2018

 

PREVIEW OF 2018 SEASON


The 2018 season will be marked by the entry of a Connaught 'B' team into Div 2 of the League.
Paul McDonald takes over the captaincy of Connaught 'A' and has made a few changes to last year's squad.

Terry Shoebridge and Phil Wilson, both experienced EBA players, move into the squad as does Pat Benefer who has become one of the club's leading lady players. We also welcome Paul Groom, who has joined from Wymondham Dell to play in all our external leagues.

Subject to availability the squad of 18 players has the ability for another top 3 finish but at full strength there are some tough sides in Div 1


John Winup will captain Connaught 'B' and will bring with him Jon Horslen, Joe Li-Rocchi, Ken Ramsbottom and George Sheridan from last year's 'A' team.

Experienced players in Bill Adcock and John Overton will add to the depth. The rest of the squad are newer to league bowls but players like Colin Barton, Trevor Burt and David Warne are very capable.

John has a total squad of 19 players including 7 ladies of whom some are new to league bowling. The aim is to give playing opportunity to everybody rather than just choose from the 14 or so strongest players. Therefore league success is unlikely but we hope to be reasonably competitive and also sociable opponents


Each squad has quite a few additional players registered who would play only in emergency so we will have no trouble in fielding sides


The club is delighted to have been asked to host the UW Competition Finals on 8 and 9 September and has started preparations with the construction of a new barbecue area!
