Teams Named For Weber Cup XVII

WITH TEAM EUROPE having won the last two Weber Cups, including a crushing 17-8 victory last year in Barnsley, there are changes afoot as the two sides are named for this year’s Europe v USA showdown which takes place at EVENTCITY in Manchester from 5th to 7th August.

Europe is once again captained by Dominic Barrett who is making his ninth appearance in a European shirt. Also back is Stu Williams for appearance number six and so is Martin Larsen who is yet to taste defeat in the Weber Cup in his previous four outings.

Making his debut is two-handed Swede Jesper Svensson, the 21 year old winner of four PBA titles and the 2015 European No.1.

The Americans, looking for a much needed win, are this year captained by legend Parker Bohn III, who made his debut in 2015. He is joined by Big Wes Malott, who impressed in his previous two outings despite being on the losing side.

There are two new boys in the side and they are Marshall Kent and Kyle Troup. Kent is a 23 year-old from Yakima, Washington and 2014 PBA Rookie of the Year. Troup at 24, is one of the most colourful bowlers competing in the USA. Both players posses one PBA title each.
