BCGBA Senior Individual Merit Countdown: Second Quarter Preview

Reigning holder Darren Plenderleith is in the second quarter, and aims to be the first player since Andy Spragg in 2007 to defend the title. He has a tough draw though against his Greville Arms team mate Pete Dunkley of Warwick & Worcester. Just above them is Shropshire Merit winner Spencer Clarke, who plays John Worsnop. Gareth Gwilliam is another big name player who has won major competitions, and takes on home county player John Durrands. David East is another top class player who will look to make his mark in this competition, starting against Neil Desmond. Paul Lamb from North Midlands has won plenty of major competitions in the Midlands, but will look to make an impact on the national stage, and takes on Yorkshire’s Peter Clarke. Tommy Johnstone from Cheshire and Ryan Clark from South Yorkshire looks a great clash between two serious competition players, with Tommy having won it in 2002 and still proving his class by winning the Cheshire Merit. Ryan is an up and coming player who plays in many competitions up north. Lee Heaton of North Lancs & Fylde and Carl Fielding from Warwick and Worcester is another mouth watering clash, with both players full of County experience. Neale Charlton from Wales and Tom Eccles of Greater Manchester conclude the quarter.
