Our very own
WORLD CHAMPION 'Les Gillett'
with his championship
PAIRS partner 'Jason Greenslade'
What a wonderful achievement for a member
of OUR club to win a World Title. This is most certainly a first and
something to be rightly proud of
Les Gillett has been bowling at the top
level for more than twenty years now, having played for England at senior
level on many occasions. But winning a world title is a daunting task,
requiring the highest levels of skill and concentration, and whilst many
have almost got there, including Les, the final few hurdles are without
doubt the most challenging, but with the help of Jason Greenslade
they did it! I should mention that Jason has also been playing at the top
level for many years as well, and has been representing Wales at
International level for about the same time as Les.
I have personally witnessed many of Jason’s games over the years,
and he is a formidable player, so teaming up with a solid mainly “draw
bowler” like Les, was always likely to produce some excellent results.
