Michael Jamieson isn’t the only top sportsman we’re proud to support. Bertrams have just confirmed their continued sponsorship of their very own Academic Category Manager, Tim Stone.
Tim’s chosen sport is bowls and here he outlines some of his sporting endeavours and looks ahead to the next few months…
I’m very grateful to Bertrams who have sponsored my bowls and given me opportunities to play in the World Bowls Tour (WBT) qualifiers. Despite not qualifying this season for any events, I’m likely to end the season still in the top 30 in the World and I’m going to have one more season at trying to qualify for the WBT events. Bertrams’ support allows me to enter and travel across the UK for such events.
In addition, my club – and I’m a member of the team – have reached the last 16 of a national club competition, where we are playing Eastbourne in the next round in Barking next month.
I have also qualified for the Super8serieS [a 16 week competition starting next week - Ed] and these events help me as I’m competing against some of the top players in the UK. It’s good to finish in the top 16 in the league, (13th last season). I’ve been in this for 6 seasons and so far I’ve finished, 12th, 1st, 6th, 8th and 13th. The aim is a top 4 finish, but realistically I’m expected to be 15th/16th and my aim is to be top 8.
Thanks again for your support – it means a lot.
Thanks for the update Tim! We wish you and your team well in your forthcoming competitions and look forward to hearing more about your success in 2014.
