Commonwealth Appearances

Two decades on from her first Commonwealth Games appearance and 12 years since her last, Amy Pharaoh delivered for Team England with silver in the Lawn Bowls women's pairs.

Pharaoh, from Grimsby, took bronze in Manchester and Melbourne before upgrading to gold in Delhi in 2010, teaming up with Ellen Falkner to earn victory in the women’s pairs.

Family commitments meant missing trips to Glasgow and the Gold Coast but Pharaoh returned in style to stand on the podium for the fourth time and complete the set alongside Sophie Tolchard.

A world champion both indoors and outdoors, the Lincolnshire bowler, who represents Cleethorpes BC, inspires the next generation in her day job as a PE teacher at the same school she attended as a youngster, Tollbar Academy.

It was a hugely successful campaign at Leamington Spa’s Victoria Park and some thrilling games saw Team England leave the plush lawn with six medals including two gold, two silver and two bronze.
