League Club's Finals Day Fiesta

Three Mid Shropshire bowlers will chase a slice of the biggest prize purse in Britain this year at a proud Telford club tomorrow - Saturday 30th March.

Finals day in the £7,300 St Georges Open starts at 10.30am and promises to be a feat of action with some of the biggest names in the game taking aim at the £1,500 first prize and ticket to the Champion of Champions.

And among them in the 32-strong field – and all in the bottom half of the draw – are Scott Harries of last year's Harris Cup runners-up Bylet, Tom Roden of County Cup holders Sir John Bayley and new Newport signing Josh Bradburn.

Organiser Graham Turner, delighted by the quality of the finals field, said: “There will be a bookmaker in attendance so why not come along and have a wager and support
 your favourite bowler.”

Raffle prizes include a set of Bowls donated by Thomas Taylor and a £100 voucher against anything from KW Bowls.

Now King's A Winter Wow

posted Feb 14, 2019, 12:41 AM by stephen wall

Another Mid Shropshire bowler has triumphed in the popular North Shropshire Parks winter series.

Jamie King followed in the footsteps of Martin Gaut seven days earlier by winning round 18 that attracted 53 entries to Old Shrewsbury on Sunday 10th February.

The 24-year-old Jamie celebrated booking a honeymoon in New York with partner Sally Clee later this year by beating Kerry Dance of Hadnall 13-9 in the final.

All set to play for Wrockwardine Wood this year after leaving Bowring, he claimed the scalps of county No.1 Callum Wraight 13-1 in the last eight and his former Bowring captain Rich Lawson 13-8 in the semi-finals.

Series organiser Jamie Brookes said: "Jamie bowled very well in the knockout stages after scraping through a tough round robin group (when he lost all three of his games)."

Jamie King, no stranger to winter successes in Shrewsbury, was making only his second series appearance of this winter - which continues this coming Sunday with round 19 at Prees (entries taken on the day at 9.30am, cost £7 adults and £4 juniors).
