Name the Foreign Green 4

Bowling News

Wilton Park at Batley proved to be one green too many for the Springwood Exile who faltered in the 3rd Round of our competition to leave Jeff Mellor in front on his own with the only 100% record. The chasing pack of 6 are just one point behind him ready to take advantage of any faltering on behalf of the leader. Will that happen in Round 4? Well I think one of the most difficult greens to name is included in this latest batch of three but time will determine whether I am right or not.

Ready to try again? Three more out of town greens for you to identify.

They are all within 15 miles of Huddersfield town centre.

I really do expect many to falter in recognising Photo B this week. I think that this could be a watershed moment in the competition and is a real test of local knowledge! It is a current green and in use.

Let's see how you go then with this next set of three which is below. If you fancy your chances of naming any of them then use the form to submit your best guesses. One point for each green correctly identified. I'm keeping a running total of the best scores but this is just for fun, no prizes. Closing date for No.4 is Saturday and the answers along with 'Name the Foreign Green 5' will be online on Sunday.
