Finally there were trials for the Yorkshire junior county team last weekend. 

Taking place at Pudsey B.C. 25 juniors turned up to try and gain a place in the Yorkshire junior county home and away teams for the 2022 season.

The event was a huge success and there was some very good bowling by the junior county players.

Geoff Martin was impressed by the standard so much he thinks that Yorkshire may regain the title again. 

He said: “From the standard of bowling I saw at Pudsey, Yorkshire are still in a good position to regain the BCGBA county team title for a record breaking sixth time in a row.”
