Tom takes ti­tle

Macclesfield Express - - MOTORS - BOWLS ALAN HART

AF­TER win­ning the in­au­gu­ral com­pe­ti­tion last year, Rochdale’s Tom Ec­cles suc­cess­fully de­fended the ju­nior merit tour­na­ment at Poyn­ton Sports Club.

He re­tained the cov­eted Carter Law Tro­phy, along with a cheque for £100, which he is pic­tured re­ceiv­ing from club pres­i­dent Brian Hud­son.

Tom, 17, who plays for Bul­lough Moor Bowl­ing Club in Hey­wood, said: “The green seems to suit my style of bowl­ing. I’ve been work­ing on my short game, which was my weak point. Now it’s my strength.”

Young bowlers from through­out the North West and Mid­lands com­peted for the ti­tle in a

car­ni­val at­mos- sunny, phere.

Tom beat Jor­dan McDer­mott, of Heswall, The Wir­ral, in the fi­nal.

Or­gan­iser Ben Hol­brook, vice-chair­man of Poyn­ton Sports Club’s bowls sec­tion, said: “The stan­dard was again su­perb in fast chal­leng­ing con­di­tions.”
