BTBA Adult Tour 2018 Stop 1 Lancashire Open – Lee Cocker and Kirstie Western win

BTBA tour stop 3 was the Lancashire Open at Wigan bowl organised by the Local Association. Last year this event only attracted 33 entrants. This year thanks to increased sponsorship from B&P Fabrications we were able to lower the entry fee and the tournament was FULL long before the closing the date, there was also a waiting list of 11 people !

A good contingent of locals to supported the event and these we joined from bowlers from as far away as Norwich, Sussex and Devon.

The first round was 6 games, and though the lanes we quite dry the scoring pace was good. Lee Cocker shooting 770 for the first 3 games and eventually finished the block in the lead with 1437 a 239 average, in 2nd place was Pete Stevenson on 1352 with Gavin Greaves on 1351 in 3rd. The cut to the top 8 who would go through to round two was Jonny Whitaker on 1328 and 221 average.

There was also a handicap section and leading that after round 1 was Jamie Goswell with Kirstie Western in 2nd and the cut to the top 8 coming in at James Denvil on 1349 who just knocked out Jenny Turnbull on high last game rule.

The 2nd round was 3 games with the top 4 in each the scratch and handicap section going through to a step ladder final.

In the scratch section Lee Cocker shot 707, Peter Stevenson a 711 and Rob Thurlby a 700 and they made up the top 3 with Gareth Greaves taking the last place in the step ladder final after shooting a 636

In the handicap section Jamie Gosswell a 601, Kirstie Western a 589 and Trevor Green a 581 were the top 3 and they were joined by Gary Christopher who shot a fine 657 set.

Game 1 in the step ladder final.

In the scratch section Gavin Greaves came through a close match against Thurlby 429 against Thurlby’s 423 and the first match in the handicap step ladder was even closer with 2 pins separating the bowlers. Trevor green shooting a 438, but Gary Christopher advancing with a 440

Game 2

In the scratch Pete Stevenson opened up a big lead after game 1 and Gavin couldn’t close the gap and lost 474 vs 425. In the handicap section there wasn’t much difference between the bowlers, but Kirstie Western continued her great form and advanced to the final.

Title Matches.

In the scratch section Lee Cocker came thundering out with a 277, but Pete wasn’t totally out of it after shooting a 236 himself. But in the 2nd game Pete couldn’t get the strikes he needed and though Cocker only shot a 212 he still came out a comfortably winner.

Kirstie Western had this one wrapped up after game 1 after shooting a 234 to Jamie Goswell’s 164 and she eventually won the title 490 vs 421

Well done to our winners Lee Cocker who lead from round 1 and to Kirstie Western on some great bowling.

We also had a bit of fun with a side competition where you could win a Radical Cyclops bowling ball donated by tour partner Bowling Vision. We played a closest to the pin competition. All bowlers guessed what the highest scratch qualifying score would be, but if you guessed too high you would bust and be out. Every bowler had one free guess and you could buy extra guesses for £1 with the money split between the prize fund and the local association. The highest score was 1437 and winning the bowling was none other than the leg-end Basher “mystic meg” Bonfield was guessed closest with 1433

Thanks to Wigan AMF bowl its staff and mechanics who made the tour feel very welcomed. And to Nat Leigh and the Lancashire committee for all their hard work running event.

Next tournament on the BTBA tour is the Airport Doubles on the 19th and 20th May – you can enter online via this link    http://www.emailmeform.com/builder/form/2S50G0sd2ly7bBW8
