Al Bennet and Les Grant win new Tour Opening Event

The first Senior event of the new BTBA UK Championship Tour took place at MFA Bowl Sheffield on Sunday February 16th 2014.  48 bowlers in 24 doubles sets bowled 6 games in qualifying, with the top 16 stepping-down to eight and eventually seeing Al Bennet and Les Grant victorious. 

With a new year and changes that have done away with the ranking system, a new tour has been put in place and the first stop of this tour was the Yorkshire Senior doubles at Sheffield, always a popular tournament on the calendar. 23 teams prepared to fight to win this event. split into 2 squads, 6 teams took to the lanes to set a score for the sceond squad to chase, a change of format from previous years saw the qualifying only over 6 games, but would lead to seeded matchplay rounds for the top 16 teams.

Setting the pace from the start were local bowlers Al Jenkins/Gary Barlow with opening games of 464 and 429 scratch this was impressive as a tougher pattern than normal was laid down to test the bowlers ability and patience as scoring would be lower than in previous years. Chasing Al/Gary hard were Al Bennett/Les Grant but the strongest challenge came from the pairing of Andy Clough/Steve Coates, Andy in particular bowling exceptionally well, culminating in the 5th game starting with 11 strikes, could Andy get the magic 300, unfortunately not as a stubborn 10 pin robbed him of a perfect game, this did not upset him too much as he followed up with 244 in his final game and an excellent 1429 for his 6 games, placing him way out in front of Brent Sharp 1298, Gary Barlow 1294. Leading team after squad 1 were Al/ Gary closely followed by Andy/Steve and Al/Les. On to squad 2 and the tougher condition proved just as hard to overcome, the only team to threaten the leaders were Lol Ellis/Barry Walker who bowled consistenty good scores all 6 games to place in 2nd with 2642, Lol also placing second indivdually with 1302.

Leading lady after this squad would be senior star Angie Brown with 1161 with Wendy Fullbrook 2nd 1095 and Karen Barfoot 3rd 1074. After this squad the cut for 16th fell at 2333 Mo Singleton/Mike Halliwell. The matchplay round now started with the 16 teams looking to go further. Some really exciting games ensued second seeds Lol/Barry just edged out by 5 pins by Geoff Gardner/Stephen Bose, even closer Mick Ince/Angie Brown losing by 2 pins to Keith Hodge/Geoff Brown. Now the 8 winning teams took to the lanes again for a place in the semi-final, consolation for the losers this time was that they would all cash. No really close games this round but all really hard fought.

The 4 winning teams being Al/Gary, Al/Les, Al Turner/Phil Punter and Keith/Geoff, losers being Jack Smith/Frank Lindsay, Stephen Bose/Geoff Gardner, Andy Clough/Steve Coates and Chris Skudder/Alan Keddie. Now for the semi finals and both games went down to the wire in the 10th frame with Al/Les just edging out Al/Gary 415 to 404 and Al/Phil overcoming Keith/Geoff 412 to 373. The final would be played over 2 games this time and it proved to be a one sided affair with Al/Les easily winning fom Al/Phil 922 to 764.

So the champions for this year are Al Bennett and Les Grant, well done to them. My thanks to Bob/Moya and all the staff at Sheffield for looking after us and we even finished on time. So onto the nationals for the next stop on the tour for this year.
