Bayley hit jackpot against county rivals

Two Shropshire bowls teams shared £1,6000 in prize money as they dominated an end of season competition just over the border.

Sir John Bayley hit the £1,000 jackpot in the Pennfields Fours at the Staffordshire club, beating Premier League rivals Wrockwardine Wood in the final.

Three winners from the four games took the Bayley Boys to the title by 13 shots with Scott Simpson, who had just notched a fourth triumph in the Wrockwardine Wood Open, leading the way with a 21-11 card.

“A super end to a great tournament. Congratulations to all the finalists and thanks to referee Bill Staite who kept everyone under control,” said a Pennfields spokesperson.

Finals night had started with the quartet from the County Cup winning Wrockites drubbing M & B 84-56 (Jamie King 21-10) while the Bayley saw off Moor Lane 75-62 with Kevin Hockenhull their 21-13 best.

Full final scores. Sir John Bayley 78 Wrockwardine Wood 65: Paul Evans 21 Liam Stevens 15; Scott Simpson 21 Dan Taylor 11; Kevin Hockenull 15 Stuart Rutter 21; Ant Bracken 21 Jamie King 18.
