Middleton Cup Squad Invite


7th May 2021

Middleton Cup & Balcomb Trophy 2021

The following players are invited to submit their availability for the 2021 Dorset Middleton Cup Squad.

As you are I am sure aware the 2021 competition will be a Knockout event.  Our 1st round game is versus Devon on Saturday 10th July.  This match will be played with 3 rinks home and 3 rinks away.  The home rinks will be at Poole Park BC, the away at Topsham BC.

I am counting on as many of you as possible supporting the team and county in this event this year.  We have the toughest draw anyone could wish for but at the same time it gives many of the squad a rare chance to test themselves against a vast number of current England International Bowlers and many of the 2022 Commonwealth Games Squad.

Wouldn’t it be great watching the games on TV in 2022 saying to your friends and family… “I beat him”

Could you please confirm your availability as soon as possible either via email dansteadman@yahoo.com or via text or phone on 07485467338.

Thank you kindly for your continued support in these very challenging times
