County Singles; Stanway takes the title!
Gareth Stanway won his first Cheshire singles title in today’s competition at Winnington Park. Defending champion Ste Tinsley had a good run to the quarter finals, where he came up against an in-form Jack Hardman. Hardman eventually triumphed to book his place in the semis, where he came up against Adam Smith. Jack won again to book his place in the final. The other semi was contested between Stanway and Rob Mellor, with Gareth winning that encounter with some excellent bowling. So the final was Gareth and Jack, and Gareth made a good start to take a commanding lead, but Jack fought back to take it into the penultimate end, however Gareth produced another good bowl to win it with an end to spare. A great effort by Jack, and a worthy champion in Gareth. Top four were;
Winner; Gareth Stanway.
Runner up; Jack Hardman.
3rd; Adam Smith.
4th; Rob Mellor.
