Herefordshire Short Mat Bowling Association


Herefordshire Youngsters Represent England Under-21’s

5 young Herefordshire short mat bowlers represented England Under-21’s in an international match last week against Wales in Carmarthen. Kate Williams (Lea SMBC), who captained the England team on the day, was joined by Cameron Johnson (Fownhope SMBC), Matthew Kite (Lea SMBC), Joseph Loveys (Gorsley Chapel SMBC) and Luke Rawlings (Larruperz SMBC). Brian Claessen, the England Under-21’s manager, was pleased with his team’s performance, despite the strong Wales team winning the match by a 38-18 point margin, and he paid tribute to the Wales Short Mat Bowling Association for their excellent organisation of the day.
