Cosgrove and Brown win Senior Team England Trials

The Senior Team England Trials to select the squad for 2020 concluded at Stroud Bowl last weekend. Following on from the previous trials at Poole and Guildford, the points from the best two weekends for each bowler were combined to determine their position in the trials. The top 10 bowlers in both men’s and ladies’ sections will be offered places in the Senior Team England Squad for 2020.

In the men’s division, a second strong weekend from Paul Cosgrove put him in top place, followed by Kim Johnson and Geoff Brown. In the ladies’ division, Angie Brown’s lead from the first two trials couldn’t be overhauled, leaving her in top spot, ahead of Gaye McCully and Jan Hodge.

Players will now be selected from the squad for the two major Senior events of 2020 – the first European Senior Championships in Vienna in January, and the Senior Triple Crown in Dublin in April.
