Yorkshire Ladies crown green bowlers will be out to gain a place in the British County Championship finals for the second year in succession when they play their semi-final game on Sunday against Shropshire. 

The winners go forward to the Championship final while the runners-up will have a place in the Waterloo Cup final, both to be played at Waterloo Bowling Club, Blackpool, on September 21 and 22 respectively.
