Ashley Gregory retained the League's Under-25 Merit crown on a stunning sunshine evening at Wrockwardine Wood on Saturday 17th June.

The 21-year-old Hadley USC bowler beat Sam Millward (Newport) 21-16 in the final on the No.1 green to bring the curtain down on five hours of top quality action involving 22 entries.

Ashley, a past winner of the Shropshire Junior Merit title, won the second running of this Merit at St Georges last year when with Donnington Wood.

He got his nose ahead in the 2017 final at 9-8 and ended up sentencing Sam to a second defeat in the climax of this competition, having lost to Tom Roden in the 2015 final.
