The last July weekend saw the running of the English qualifier for the QubicaAMF Bowling World Cup at AMF Nottingham. In the men’s event, Steve Thornton
came from 25th place in the first round to eventually finish 143 pins clear of second-placed Dom Barrett. The ladies event was even closer, Fiona Banks
triumphing by two pins on the back of a final round 236-game to defeat long-time leader Zara Glover.
