Gordon's return

The captain came in from the cold and witnessed an impressive 7 pin victory over Tytherington British Legion, a team currently occupying a place near the top of the table.

Top Tips 5. Follow through

The follow-through of your arm after the release is important because it dictates the direction of the ball.
