BCGBA 2021 Veterans Final: video

Bowling News


This year's BCGBA Veterans Trophy Final was held at the Prees Cricket & Recreation Club in Shropshire on Wednesday 11 August. The two finalists were Keith Pessell from Shropshire and Nigel McDermott from South Yorkshire and you can watch every end of the final by clicking on this YouTube link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k7SaO0S9R2o&t=232s


I won't spoil the ending by telling you the score but you can always fast-forward the 35-minute video if you want to. The last Yorkshire representative standing was well-known local bowler Les Holmes who lost 20-21 in the semi-finals to Nigel McDermott. You can make your own judgement on the state of the green from watching the video.


I am grateful to Philip Walker for pointing me in the direction of this video and other finals from this year's BCGBA programme which will be appearing here shortly.

Surely the BCGBA should have demanded some assurances from the hosts about the quality of the green for a showpiece national final or was it just about money? To play such an important match on that green downgrades the competition. The club should feel embarrassed about subjecting bowlers to that surface.

The reason this green was used is down to the sponsors as it is their local club.

We’ve all played on some greens this year which have not been as good as previous years but the green on this video was awful - lots of bald patches and very bumpy making playing quite difficult.


Surely the BCGBA could have got a decent green for one of its finals ?

I assume the final was hardly publicised as there seemed to be as many officials as spectators.

I notice that other BCGBA finals were played on decent greens.
