Heatherton Indoor Bowls Club have reason to be proud after four of their members sealed national glory.

John Roberts, Mike Jackson, Charles Davies and Simon Hilling are 2019 Welsh Fours champions - having played their hearts out and delivered an outstanding season.

After a gripping semi-final against a talented Cardiff team of internationals, the team were thrilled to find themselves back in Earlswood on Sunday, April 14 for the final.

Heatherton had it all to play for in the clash, with tough opposition again from Cardiff including Commonwealth gold and international players. 

The final was of a very high standard and the contest was closely fought from start to finish. The Heatherton boys led from the beginning and kept their noses in front until the last end, where they were finally crowned champions with a 20-17 win.

The Heatherton team of four will now go on to represent Wales in the British Isles Bowls Championship next March, taking on the top teams from England, Scotland, Ireland and the Channel Islands.
