We had two players reach the final of the Coors Meole Brace Open as Callum Wraight of Castlefields defeated St Georges player and League Secretary Martin Gaut 16. It gives Callum an early Champion of Champions place, and adds to his 2012 and 2018 triumphs. Callum had a relatively easy passage through the competition, having a walkover against Dave Rhodes from Newport, then beating three of our players, Steve Bodley of Wrockwardine Wood’s 6, Newport’s Sam Millward 13 and Paul Evans of Sir John Bayley 10. Martin, who hasn’t got into St Georges’ premier team this season yet, had got past Lee Woodfield and Castlefields’ Adam Jones 17, then St Georges Open winner Ryan Prosser 15 and Josh Mordue 16. Paul Evans had enjoyed a great run after beating Clay Flattley of St Georges 10, Daniel Nixon 18 and Craig Gant 12. Sam Millward had got past Nathan Dawes 11 and Kevan Shaw 16, while Steve Bodley beat James Martin 18 first game. Former home player Colin Beaman of Hanwood reached the Quarter Finals after defeating John Jones 9 and Gareth Hughes 13, before losing out to Josh Mordue 13. Adam Jones had beaten Tom Vickers first round 19.
Well done to both players on their great run, and to Callum for winning the competition.
