West Ealing in
Home Counties BA Fours
Before a bowl has even been rolled on our Mervyn Road green, there has been early-season success for West Ealing.
The quartet of Paul Wilsher, Rob Green, Craig Hill and Barry Wheeler, as reigning Middlesex Fours champions, were representing the county in the Quarter Final of the Home Counties B.A. Fours.
In the late April sunshine they travelled to the town of Carterton in Oxfordshire, where they took on their counterparts from that county. The teams played out a cagey first half of the game before West Ealing pulled away and with the score at 20-12 after 20 ends, Carterton shook hands.
West Ealing have now qualified for the Semi Finals to be played at Old Coulsdon BC on May 15th. There they will face either the Sussex side from Sidley Marlets (whom West Ealing beat at last year's National Championships) or or the Gerrards Cross (Bucks) quartet, who have been in both of the last two national finals.
