Father beat daughter as Richard Suggett beat Kate in the final of the league's Senior Merit.

Richard, struggling for form in Bowring's second division side, had qualified in style at Ercall Magna and then raced through the field on finals night at Hadley USC on Saturday, July 5.

He beat 2009 winner Les Mumford in the last eight and then reigning champion Alan Jones 21-10 in the semi-finals to set up a difficult showdown with his daughter.

She was hoping to become the first ever female winner of the title but, after hugging before and after the clash, it was Richard who lifted the trophy with a 21-12 success.

Full details and scores to appear shortly.

AND FINALLY, good luck to the three Mid Shropshire teams in the quarter-finals of the County Consolation Cup on Wednesday, July 9, who are led by holders Horsehay.

The ties are: Allscott v Prince Hotel @ Prees old green, Hanmer v Pontesbury @ SJ Bayley (bottom green), Old Shrewsbury v Charlton @ Chester Road (Premier green), Ford v Horsehay @ Wem USC.
