New Brighton Queens Royal's, Anthony Thompson won the Federation Individual Merit Competition at New Brighton Cricket & Bowling Club on Sunday May 12th, defeating New Brighton Quarry Vikings bowler, Chris Barton 21-09 in the Final. 16 players turned up to play in sunny conditions and 'Buzz' started off his day with a convincing 21-04 victory over Lynsey Gorman in his first match. A Quarter Final 21-11 win against Joe Edwards saw him take his place in the Semi Final where he defeated Richard Bendrey 21-10 to reach the Final against Chris Barton. Chris had started off the day with a 21-10 win against Derek Smith and his Quarter Final saw him post a very narrow 21-20 winning score against Josh Bunting. Another close match in the Semi Final against Owen Turner saw Chris winning 21-18 and reaching the Final against Anthony. Anthony proved just too consistent in the Final and ran out a fairly comfortable 21-09 winner to win the Trophy for a third time. Anthony was the first winner of this Trophy in 1994 and won it again in 2004. Association President, Keith Etches presented the Trophy to Buzz after thanking New Brighton Cricket & Bowling Club for the use of their green and all the players, markers and measurers who helped out during the day. Anthony Thompson, Richard Bendry, Chris Barton and Owen Turner will now go on to play in the Federation of Crown Green Bowls, Individual Merit Competition at the Grange Bowling Club, Warrington on Sunday October 6th.
