Fields hammer Hanwood, Chester Road earn massive win, Top two as you were
Castlefields roarded back to form as they hammered Hanwood in Gameweek 15 of the Salop Leisure Shropshire Premier Bowling League. They won 13-1 as they look to close in on the top two. Captain Alan Peach commented “it was a great team performance. The best we have played this season as the lads were really up for this one. Thanks also must go to Graham Rogers for cutting the green twice which made it a even pace.” Glyn Herbert was best winner 7 while Glyn Wellings was only winner for the visitors, 19. Newport and Sir John Bayley though both won 12-2 to be as you were at the top of the table. The Bayley beat Bowring in an excellent win, Josh Hale best winner 4 and captain Rich Lawson 12 the best for the visitors, who still find themselves down at the wrong end of the table. Newport beat Meole Brace with captain Sam Millward and Phil Emery best winners 6, while for the away side it was Julian Cooke 17 best winner.
Chester Road earned themselves a massive win over relegation rivals Hanmer as they won there 11-5. Andy Smith led the way winning 11 as they struck a huge blow on their North Shropshire rivals. For the home side they had three best cards of 14 from Dave Ellison, Lee Peate and Martin Elson. Ifton took advantage as they won 12-2 against Burway. Skipper Dickie Jones commented “another good home performance and happy to have won 12-2. Burway played better than the score suggested.” There were no single figure cards in the game, with Martin Jones best winner 11, while Kiah Robert’s 16 card was best for the visitors. Bylet are up to 7th place after they beat Wrockwardine Wood 9-5. Rich Morris was their best winner 3 while for the Wrockites it was Martin Williams 10, who drop down to 5th place. St Georges won yet another away game at Wem USC 11-5. Joint captain Ian Gaut said it was a “great team performance throughout by the team and great around it too. Andy Morgan was superb first four (to be best winner 5) and Ryan Mills missed an opportunity to give us all four winners in the middle and register a win against Derek Wright. Lewis Scott and Ian Gaut wrapped the game up comfortably at the back. They had a couple of players missing which with our away form is something you are unlikely to get away with. Need to carry that form through to Friday against Newport.” Best winner for the home side was Neil Boxall 4, in a match with three single figure winners on both sides.
Newport still lead by 6 to Sir John Bayley, while Hanmer are now 14 points adrift of Chester Road and Bowring at the bottom of the table. Pete Farmer won his 15th consecutive game this season, and 28th overall, to keep top of the League Averages by one win to Russ Pegram.
