The first round draw for the 2011 Suffolk Bowls (BE) County Men’s Fours has thrown together last year's finalists.
The Rookery team of Mark Royal, Stuart Brimlow, Ben Beamish and David Brown will be aiming to do better than they did last year, when they conceded after only 12 ends, when trailing 24-2 to Ipswich Marlborough's Andrew Friend, Colin Chick, Ashley Sale and Phillip Last.
The under 25s Singles competition sees Rookery's Marcus Fuller, last year’s runner-up, travel to Borough of Eye to play Ryan Howell.
The County Fours quarter-finals are on Friday, July 8, at Framlingham Castle Bowls Club and the Under 25s singles on Friday, July 1, at Margaret Catchpole, Ipswich.
The semi-finals of both competitions are on Sunday, July 17, with the finals at Roundwood, Ipswich, on Sunday, July 24.
