Mally Andrews wins Wallasey Individual Merit Competition

West Kirby Victoria's Mally Andrews won today's Wallasey Individual Merit Competition when he finished a superb days bowling by beating the former 3 time winner of this competition, Matthew Gilmore 21-12 in the Final. Mally had bowled brilliantly all day and fully deserved to win the event after defeating Owen Turner 21-11 in his first round match before then beating Jamie Isaacs 21-13 in the Quarter Finals. Mally then posted a  21-17 winning scorecard against his West Kirby Victoria team mate John Lloyd in his Semi Final match to move into the Final. Matty Gilmore had defeated another former winner of this event, Colin Saville 21-10 in his First Round match before then going on to beat Anita Richardson 21-07 in the Quarter Final. Matty then went on to defeat Sandridge bowler, Maureen Saville 21-13 in the Semi Final to move into the Final against Mally Andrews. Mally started off slowly in the Final and found himself 2-5 down early on before managing to draw level at 6 across. In the next 8 ends Mally bowled some top class woods to score 11 unanswered points and build up a commanding 17-06 lead. Matty managed to finally get the jack back and then force a run of 6 shots in five ends to reduce the deficit to 12-17. This was as good as it got for Matty however as Mally then scored the next 4 shots in three ends to post a fine 21-12 winning card and become the 2018 Wallasey CGBA Individual Merit winner. Association Chairman, Mike Costall thanked all the 20 players who entered today's event, he thanked the Harrison Park Club Members for allowing us to use their green and facilities for todays competition and thanked all the people who helped out with the marking and measuring during the day.
