Results of Day One are here.
There are more quality names taking part today in the St Georges Open. Callum Wraight of Castlefields enjoyed a great run to the Semi Finals last season, and will look to make a good start to the year. Former homester Scott Harries of Penn will hope green knowledge helps, with other local top county bowlers Derek Wright, Castlefields’ Keith Wall and Adie Rowe and Andy Moss and Martin Lloyd here too. Shropshire young guns Rob Fuller from Penn, Jamie King, Martin Gaut and Dan Taylor of Wrockwardine Wood and Sam Millward and Josh Bradburn hope youth can triumph over experience. There are plenty of big names outside the county travelling there too, including the Willenhall Nordley pairing of Paul Evans and Scott Simpson and M&B Cheslyn Hay trio Chris Ward, Dave East and Gordon Hawkins. Phil Clinton from the George, Dane Hopwood of Royal Oak, Bill Kinchin from Moseley CC all have big competition experience. Castlefields’ Steve Freer, Leighton Roberts and Andy Hughes know how to win big competitions, as well as fellow top bowler Wayne Ditchfield who makes the long trip down from North Lancs & Fylde, along with other Northern players Matty Stewart, Mike Tunstall, Kev Shaw and Gareth Gwilliam.
