Weekend Competitions Preview

There is no snow to worry about this week as the West Brom Open starts along with the second weekend of the St Georges Open.

The West Brom Open have released their draw and Saturday Morning sees last year’s Meole Brace Open winner Ryan Prosser take his place in the line up, along with fellow Warwick and Worcester young gun Elliot McGuinness. Mike Tunstall will hope experience will help him get through the field. Into the afternoon session and there probably won’t be a much tougher half to qualify from with All England Holder Darren Plenderleith, Staffordshire Merit Holder Scott Simpson and former winner of this event Simon Coupe in the top half. Willenhall Nordley have another 4 players with Scott in the event, including Steve and Dan Bodley who reached the qualifiers of last week’s St Georges Open, with Dan qualifying, and Paul Evans who also qualified. Tommy Johnstone is also another big name in that field, along with his North Lancs & Fylde team mate Dave Watters.

Into Sunday and Shropshire veteran Derek Wright takes his place, along with the ever improving Nathan Dawes. John Dewey reached the final of the ECC Open last season, and his county team mate Paul Chamberlain also takes part. The afternoon sees Dudley Dell and Staffordshire county pair Jamie Wyer and Simon Homer take part, along with Derbyshire young gun Conor Chamberlain. Experienced Potteries & District players Lee and Paul Dale will aim to qualify, along with last year’s Kings Norton Masters winner Shane Day.

St Georges don’t release their draws but as far as I can remember there are former Shropshire Merit winners Andy Moss, Martin Lloyd and Wayne Rogers taking part. I will try and post more details when I find them.
