Open Competition 2012

A full compliment of 32 Doubles pairings arrived at the 2012 Open Doubles Competition. The weather was good and both spectators and players enjoyed a good day of thrilling and competitive bowling.

In Round 1 , Chaddesden's Liam Tooth (aged 12) partnered by Dave Hill won through to Round 2 - where there was to be a shock exit for defending champions , Wayne Lockhart and John Hickford . 

But the emerging story of the day was about the performances of Belper Pottery BC's teenagers , Billy Marshall (16) and his brother , Eddie (14) who were competing in their very first Senior Open event.

The Quarter-Finals were concluded as:

    N.Brassington  &  J.Haywood  beat  S.Beadsmore &  G.Beadsmore

    D.Stevenson    &  I Maxwell     beat  N.Moxham     &  A.Bingham

    L.Wheeldon     &  P.Wheeldon beat  P.Haywood     &  C.Wilkinson

    B.Marshall       &  E.Marshall   beat  E.Riley          &  P.Brailsford

Two closely contested Semi Finals followed:

    N.Brassington  &  J.Haywood  beat  D.Stevenson &  I.Maxwell     21-19

    B.Marshall       &  E.Marshall  beat  L.Wheeldon  &  P.Wheeldon  21-20

In the Final , the young Marshall brothers were to play against their clubmate Norman Brassington and there was speculation that they might ' freeze ', but this was never the case as they continued in the same innocent, nerveless approach that had served them well all day - Billy providing the tight leads and anchorman Eddie seeming to find an endless stream of end changing shots with his final wood. NormanBrassington and John Haywood played their part in an enthralling final , but even they were left shaking their heads at the quality of bowls played by their opponents who ran out 21-12 winners and received the Cup from Belper Meadows BC president , Bill Knowles.
