Ashby Bowls Club fun day...
Sunday 26th of April 2015 Junior members from Ashby Bowls Club were invited to St Margarets Bowls Club by Bowls Leicestershire for a relaxing and fun days bowling, this involved playing a rink and some fun activities which involved bowling into a target and playing naughts and crosses with bowls. The young players that were involved were  Charlie (who is now a veteran at 23yrs old ) William, Alice and Mitchell. After gathering at St Margarets Bowls Club all the people were invited into the club house where all were greeted with a warm welcome by Dave Lakin who is involved with the Bowls Leicestershire under 25's, after Dave gave a little speech he introduced John Jenkins (President of Bowls Leicestershire) who explained that the young players were invited to have a great days bowling and that nobody was there to assess them or monitor what they were doing.  Dave then announced that they were going to play a rink and all the Ashby players were involved, William and Mitchell played with Dave Lakins grandson from St Margarets and Josh Brookes from Bagworth, Alice joined 2 other players who were captained by Charlie Lomax.  It was a great experience for the young players as Alice and Mitchell played at number 2's in their teams while William played at number 3, each player learning new tactics in the positions that they played in. The first session was extremely pleasant to watch with all the bowlers playing to a very high standard of bowls, which at times was very breath taking, even the other parents and members of Bowls Leicestershire, which involved past Presidents and the current President John Jenkins, were commenting on how good the young ones from Ashby were, they behaved impeccably with respect and good manners to all involved. After a short break they had fun in teams of three, where they bowled at a target and also at a section set up like naughts and crosses, a fun day was had by all with the sun shining down and bacon butties on sale. All Ashby players have been selected to play for the county. Congatulations to you all not least the parents for taking them.
