12:00pm Thursday 19th September 2013 in Sport
WARRINGTON’S Carl Armitage scooped the £700 first place prize in the Mike Roach Memorial Bowls tournament at Woolston RBL.
Armitage came through a top quality field, adapting superbly to the monsoon-like weather. In his first game Armitage accounted for Winsford’s Glynn Cookson 21-16, before beating Richie Goddard 21-13 in the last eight.
He then went on to knock out Dean Ferris 21-15 in the semis, before disposing of Gareth Gwilliam 21-9 in the final.
Damian Morrison, from Warrington, lost 21-11 in the semi-final to eventual runner-up Gwilliam.
Morrison came out on top of a tight affair in the first round, progressing 21-20 against B Burlinson and booked the semi-final spot with Gwilliam after a last eight clash with S Coupe, which he won 21-16.
All proceeds went to St Rocco’s Hospice, which raised £2160.00 during the competition.
