Peter Merchant Cup
due to a disappointing entry to this comp it has been cancelled. It seems that at the end of the season the majority have had enough bowling and want a break.
The Peter Merchant was held at Coundon on Sunday 4th September and after the completion of 3 rounds of bowling we were down to the semi finals.
Phil Welland had 2 close 21/20 games against Ken Haylor & Paddy Hayes, Tony Aubury had a good 21/18 match with Matt Allen, and Martin Golby and Leon Blakey both had close games to reach the semi finals.
P Welland 10 v T Aubury 21
M Golby 16 v L Blakey 21
The Final was another close game which was only decided by a run of 6 shots from Tony Aubury to go from 17 /15 down to win by 21 / 17
Held on Dunlop Greens
After a long afternoons bowling the final was contested by two bowlers from Bulkington BC.
Dave Harvey, who had won the North Mids Senior Citzs comp this year reached the final defeating Steve Berry 21/19 in the semi-final.
His opponent was John Tomlinson who had beaten Roger Taylor in the quarter finals
With two men in form a close final was expected and the game proved to be so with Dave Harvey winning by 21 to 16
