There is a quality field assembled for the last major competition of the season at Wrockwardine Wood, with six of the player from our county. Former finalist and semi finalist Mike Beer of Castlefields is favourite to finally add this trophy to his collection, and faces Simon Homer of Dudley Dell first game. There are two former winners in the field, Scott Simpson from Willenhall Nordley and Pete Farmer, who play Wayne Rogers and Neil Kershaw respectively. There are a few clashes between our players with former All England winner Darren Plenderleith of the Greville Arms, who is second favourite, playing youngster Jordan Patrick of Great Barr, Jordan’s brother Adam from Moor Lane takes on Nathan Dawes of Dudley Dell and Carl Fielding of the Greville Arms playing Three Magpies’ Ben Lynch. Scott Harries of Penn plays Ayden Smith, while Yorkshire’s Ashley Tattersley makes the long trip back to take on Russ Prosser of the George.
Hopefully there will be live scores here.
