Knypersley Junior Open Bowls Competition

This competition was held on Sunday 3 July starting at 11.00 A.M. at Knypersley Bowling Club.
It was organised by Carole Hornsby who looks after the Junior bowling team at Knypersley.
It is a singles competition with Juniors, boys and girls, under the age of 18 years run as a straight knockout competition.

The weather was kind right from the start at 11.00 A.M. and all the juniors showed their competitive spirit to produce some great bowling throughout the first 2 rounds.  
The semi-finals comprised Ryan Dodd v Matt Packett and Adam Dunn v Fraser Page.  Ryan proved to be too strong and accurate a player for Matt and won convincingly 21-9.  The 2nd semi-final was nip and tuck all the way through but Adam just managed to gain the advantage to win against Fraser 21-19.
The final was a thrilling match and produced some excellent bowling from Ryan Dodd (Alsager) and Adam Dunn (Florence). The advantage wavered back and forth between the two players but it was finally Ryan who broke through to win 21-17 against Adam.

Presentation of cheques to the semi-finalists and finalist and a cheque and cup to the winner was then made by organiser Carole Hornsby.
