BOWLS: Middleton Cup rivals await Oxon
7:00am Thursday 20th March 2014 in Sport
OXFORDSHIRE will face familiar opposition in the opening stages of the Middleton Cup this season as they seek to improve on reaching successive quarter-finals in the last two years.
Oxon, whose dreams of lining up at Worthing last year were shattered with a last-eight defeat by Berkshire, will have Leamington in their sights this time with the National Championships moving there.
Oxfordshire open up in South Group Section B against Middlesex at Oxford City & County on May 31, before travelling across the Solent to face Isle of Wight at Shanklin on June 14.
They are back at Oxford City & County the following Saturday to take on Hampshire, and complete their group programme against Kent at Hall’s BC, Dartford, on July 5.
OXFORD CITY & COUNTY IBC FIXTURES
Saturday: v Oxford & District (Gwen Clarke Trophy, H, 2.15). Sunday: v Abingdon (H, 2.15). Tuesday: v Foxhills (H, 2.30).
