Netherseal shock King George V, Great Barr give themselves chance
Netherseal shocked the league leaders King George V as they won there 8-4 in Gamweek 15 of the Summit Garage Staffordshire Premier Bowls League. James Southern led the way with his 11 card to be best winner and MVP as they won by 3. Andy Gibbs’ 9 win was enough to earn best winner and MVP for the home side. Ward End Cons didn’t take to much advantage as they only beat Great Barr 7-3, a result which gives Great Barr a boost of staying up. Captain Bob Jones led the way for the visitors with his 3 win, which earned him MVP, while the home side had three single figure winners, the best of which being Adam Weaver 3, which also earned him MVP. Penn are almost certainly down after only beating Woodfield 7-3. Woodfield captain Nick Newey comments “we went to battle against our near neighbours on the immaculate Penn green and the bowling in the first four was to a high standard, Penn getting the upper hand with 3 winners. Scott Harries beating the ageless Bob Marsh, an outstanding Rob Fuller (best winner and MVP 13) beating Lyndon Hazlehurst and Mark Jones beating Martin Orme, with Nick Newey turning in the only winning card for the visitors in the front (to be best winner and MVP 12). At the back, Mick Brown came from a few back to beat Sean Lockley, Gary Cooper beat Eamon Daly but two good cards from Woodfield with Claire Pugh beating Andy Jones and Pete Cookson beating Ben Dixon kept the total deficit low.” Tanworth in Arden kept up their promotion hopes with a 9-1 win over Stretton Anglesey. Barry Maskell Jnr led the way winning 8 with only Newil Worthington winning for the visitors 15, to be MVP. Royal Oak defeated Windmill 8-2 with Simon Clinton best winner and MVP 6, and Phil Chester the same for the away side with his 15 card.
King George V are 6 ahead of Ward End Cons and another 3 ahead of Tanworth in Arden. Penn are nine behind Great Barr and another four adrift of Windmill. Chris Bergin just needs one win to be the League Averages winner, with team mate Tom Pritchard level with Darrell Handley still at the top of the Mark Taylor Support Ltd. MVP award.
