Thacker bowls highest game in league history

Rachel Thacker rolled the highest women’s game in the history of the Sunday Trios League at Romford’s City Pavilion at the weekend.

Thacker starred once again with a score of 234, beating the previously highest mark of 232 set by Becky Skinner nine years ago.

Misfits lead the way in the handicap competition, from Pinball Wizards and Clappers.

High games: Mike Hayford 248, 206; Rachel Thacker 234; Martin Perry 214; Bobby Mitchell 214; Allan Park 213.
