Corporation Cup 2017

On 22nd of July Aberystwyth Bowling club held their open singles competition supported by Aberystwyth Town Council and Claire Lloyd Hair Salon. This year saw an upsurge of entries from as far afield as Llandrindod Wells and Builth Wells bowling clubs as well as excellent support from near neighbours Queens Road Bowling Club, Tregaron and New Quay. There were some very close encounters especially in the first round. Jackie Thomas of Builth Wells really made the eventually winner Martyn Phillips work hard for his 21-17 victory. This would be his closest game on his way to the final. Nineteen-year-old Tom Tolhurst from Llandrindod Wells B C had to fight hard and keep his composure to gain his semi-final slot. In the first round he beat Alan Edwards (Aberystwyth BC) 21-18 only to have another tight game against Brian Davies (Queens Road BC) 21-20. As if that was not enough he then came up against Shan Jones (Tregaron BC) a previous runner up who gave him another run for his money but he eventually won out 21-19. In the semi-final he came up against the on form Martyn Phillips who beat him comfortably.

In the bottom half of the draw the games were not as tight going to form on the whole. Jamie James (Queens Road BC) winning his games comfortably until the semi-final where he met home player David James who beat him 21-10 in a against the odds victory to take him in to the final against Phillips. In the final James never really got going Phillips winning 21-8 to notch up his seconded competitive final win against County Secretary David James this season.

As the mayor was unable to attend the prizes and the Corporation Cup were presented by co-sponsor Claire Lloyd of Claire Lloyd Hair Studio, Aberystwyth.
