Paul Garwood organiser of the Nursery Junior competition reports :--

The Nursery 2019 Junior Open took place on Saturday 3rd August fortunately the weather had improved from earlier in the week, and the green was in good condition thanks to the efforts of our greensman Graham Mcdermott. We had 13 entrants this year ranging from 9 to 17 years old which were split into three groups in a round robin format. There were some great performances and matches in the group stages, with the group winners being Matt Farrell and Ben Mills both unbeaten and third group winner Jack Proctor, group runners up Kristian Nobbs, Tom Eaton, Elliott Starling, and best third places, Abi Harris and Lucy Ridgeway made up the 8 quarter finalists.

The quarter finals will well contested, with the match of the round being Elliott Starling coming from 18-20 to edge out 11 year old Jack Proctor 21-20 Quarter Finalists Ben Mills 21 (Stockport) Abi Harris 14 (Flixton) Matt Farrell (Sale) 21 Lucy Ridgeway 11 (Poynton) Kristian Nobbs 21 (Altrincham) Tom Eaton 11 (Mid Cheshire) Elliot Starling 21 (Urmston) Jack Proctor 20 (Royton)

In the semi finals Matt took control leading well on a medium mark and ran out 21-10 winner over Kristian. The other semi was a classic, Ben playing long marks to perfection suddenly found himself 8-13 down, due to some excellent leading by Elliott who also found a couple of good bowls to take the jack off Ben. Ben responded with a 9 break to lead 17-13 only for Elliott to level 17-17. Ben finally found a bowl to get the jack back and following a couple of good leads ran out a 21-17 winner. Semi Finals Matt Farrell 21 Kristian Nobbs 10 Ben Mills 21 Elliot Starling 17

The final between Ben and Matt was another high quality match. Ben dominated at the start with his accurate long mark leading to go 16-10 in front. Matt recovered with some excellent short marks to go 15-17 down, they exchanged two’s which left the score at 19-17 to Ben. Matt led out on a short mark across the green and put a good lead about one foot behind the jack, Ben managed to lean his bowl on Matts to count. Matt was just short, to give Ben a difficult opportunity to get two, and responded with an attacking bowl that lent on his counting bowl to make two and win the Nursery 2019 Junior Open collecting the Trophy and £50.

Final Ben Mills 21 Matt Farrell 17

It really was a very enjoyable day, played in a fantastic atmosphere, every junior played well and should be rightly proud of themselves. A few thanks, players and parents/family members for bringing them and helping to make it an easy job to run the competition, Thanks for all the Nursery members who attended, including, Trish and Bill Davies, Andy Proctor and Irving Cummings. Thanks to a number of our club members who sponsored the event, Graham Mcdermott, Dave Farrar and Irving Cummings. Finally thanks to Sharon from the Nursery Inn for providing the food.
