David Taylor Trophy 2017

Students compete for David Taylor TrophyOn Friday 10th July 2017, students from the academy met with members of Mansfield Bowling Club to compete for the David Taylor Trophy. The students have been receiving coaching in flat green bowls from members of the club, who are based at the bottom of the Queen Elizabeth’s Academy drive.

This was the eighth time that students from the academy have competed for the trophy – this year emphasised the progress made by the students as they narrowly lost by 30 shots against much more experienced bowlers. All students enjoyed the event, and even the late downpour didn’t dampen the spirits of the players.

The event was supported by academy director Miss Brothwell, president of Mansfield Bowling Club Linda Alvey, together with many other staff members and MBC members.
