SCARBOROUGH Indoor Bowling Club ladies enjoyed a great day playing in a friendly against an England Ladies representative team - especially when they ran out winning by 86 shots to 65.

When the game was first arranged, at the international championships at Stanley IBC, County Durham, in March, there was no hint of the tragic circumstances that were about to unfold with the death of Carole McLean, Scarborough’s international team player.

Carole’s sudden passing in June resulted in the game becoming part of last week’s charity events that Scarborough IBC ran in her memory.

Last Friday’s match started with a minute’s silence in remembrance, before being played in front of a large number of spectators.

Scarborough ladies’ captain Brenda Foster thanked everyone involved for their hard work in bringing the game about, and said it was hoped to have the England ladies back at the centre at a future date.

The Scarborough teams in the four-rink match were: Amy Ker, Doreen Oxtoby, Brenda Foster and skip Vickie Simpson, Pauline Veitch, Doreen Procter, Sheila Pickering and skip Pam Miller, Jean Else, Marjorie Hellewell, Joan Hodges and skip Joyce Ryder, and Kath Broadbent, Eileen Barraclough, Julie Tappin and skip Maureen Edmond.
