Final season for Brierley Bowling club

Brierley will be without a bowling club after this season due to the high cost of maintaining two greens at Grimethorpe. The original green in Brierley that was situated behind Brierley Hall was so badly vandalised that for the last two years the players from Brierley have had to play their matches on the Grimethorpe green. David Wroe the Bowling club secretary stated that it was really sad because most of the players came from the village and were proud to represent Brierley in team games. The players will now represent Grimethorpe as a B team.
