Fantastic Day at The Derbyshire Merit @ Glossop Bowling Club

A fantastic day was had by all who attended the Derbyshire Merit on Sunday 25 June 2017. 32 of the best bowlers in Derbyshire came up against each other. Ed Furniss beat Conor Chamberlain in the final 21 - 11.

There was a great crowd of people enjoying the bowls and the fabulous refreshments put on by the ladies in the club house. Few of the bowlers enjoyed a pint or two in the bar. The chip muffins were delicious.
