Ottery St Mary club member Kevin Vernon recently took part in the Disability Bowls England (DBE) ‘Plant Welding Triples’ weekend at the Getling Bowling Club in Nottingham, writes Michael Smith.

This is a prestigious event in the DBE’s calendar with Home Nations Championship winners and Commonwealth Games bronze medallists, among the large field taking part.

Kevin was teamed with Helen Wood and Simon Wright, never having played together before expectations were mixed.

On the first day (Saturday), they played three games winning all of them, which took them into the Sunday action with their spirits raised.

Another two games were played which again they won, this meant that they were into the final and in a tense nail-biting match they emerged victorious winning the final encounter 15-13 - a terrific result, making Ottery St Mary Bowling Club very proud to have Kevin as a member!
