Charlie Wren Tournament 2016
 

The annual St Francis Charlie Wren Memorial Tournament took place on Sunday 10th July when 18 visiting teams took part.
Conditions were far from ideal, a fine drizzle persisting most of the morning, but we were encouraged by a forecast of better
weather later in the day. In fact we finished with a sunny warm spell to dry our clothes. Luckily bowlers are a hardy breed and
most seemed to enjoy the day despite the weather. The excellent catering certainly helped here!

To end the tournament, the winners of the 2 leagues played a 3 end final resulting in a win for

Pat Donohue, Molly Batchelor and John Truran from the St Francis Social and Sports Club.

The runners-up were Pat and Corinne Urben and Lynn Walsome from Uckfield.
