Norfolk’s England bowlers in contention for World titles

After two days of action in the World Championships in Belfast hopes are still high of glory for England’s team that includes five Norfolk bowlers. Jack Pye, AJ Brown, playing with Adam Smith in Group A of the World Triples, have now reeled off six straight wins and are second to Paul Duff’s Irish triple who have played seven games and won them all. They romped to a 24-1 win against Belgium and beat Wales 18-6. In Group A of the World Pairs Jason Woods & Chris Willies knew they needed a great second day and produced it with some fabulous wins and are now in third place in the group level with Belgium on points, only shot difference separates them. Gary Best, playing at number three in Jody Frampton’s four, is second in Group A of the World Fours with their rink just two points behind Andrew Lockey’s Irish four. Richard Arran’s Welsh four are third with the same number of points as England but well behind on shots. In the World Singles England's Matty Wordon leads Group A with maximum points and Alex Kley is second in Group B. In Group B of the World Pairs Saul Featherstone & Ryan Knight are in second place. Jack Knight, Ben Harvey & Josh Hale are in third place in Group B of the World Triples, one point behind Charlie Clarke's Irish triple, but need the Netherlands to pull off a shock result in their remaining game against Ireland if Hale's triple are to qualify in the top two. Ross Dunkley's England's four are in second place in Group B of the World Fours with 8 points and +31 shots. Also on 8 points are Ireland with +21 shots, Scotland with +15 shots and Norway with +12 shots. Mikey John's Welsh rink have dominated proceedings and have 12 points.
