ON-form England are preparing to shake up the Short Mat Bowling world when the game’s premier home nations’ event comes to Lowton High School early next month.

The annual bowling bonanza pits the very best players from England, Wales and Northern Ireland against each other over two days of competition.

The Top Team Challenge is the Short Mat Bowls’ version of the Battle of Britain and takes place this weekend.

Former pupil and England team member Brandon Whittaker has helped bring the event to Lowton.

He said: “The team is hitting its best form just at the right time and we’re feeling pretty confident we can go all the way. The Northern Ireland team is still tipped as the favourite but we’ll be making sure it’s a hotly contested affair.”

Spectators are welcome and admission is free. For more contact Keith Smith on: 07736 629387
