Scott Simpson reached the final of the 2019 BCGBA Champion of Champions in extremely wet conditions before losing out to Colin Kelly 10. The Willenhall Nordley man was excellent throughout the day, but came up against a player more familiar with the wet conditions, which meant that “cobbing” was the order of the day. He beat Callum Sharples 7, Jamie King of Wrockwardine Wood 7, who beat Gary Owen 15 first round, Graeme Wilson 14 and Josh Towey 18 after being behind in both. His team mate Ant Bracken beat Steve Freer of Castlefields 20, but then lost out to Josh Towey 12. Steve’s team mate Callum Wraight had won his first game 10 versus Paul Dale, but lost to Graeme Wilson 19.
Well done to Scott on a great effort.
