Sponsor Jarrod Morgan of Jarrod Morgan Financial Planning of Lichfield was at Erdington Court Bowls Club this week. He was there to present two vouchers for afternoon tea at the Ramada Hotel in Penns Lane to each of the 3 winners of the Club’s prestigious annual Sandy Powell competition.

The competition has its origins in the 1920’s and was named after a Club member in whose memory the trophy was donated.

The competition consisted of 24 players randomly allocated into teams. They play 3 preliminary rounds and then a decider at the Club’s finals week – end. In total, the winning team of Jan Clements, Margaret Emery and Ray Woods played for a total of over 12 hours and won the final by 21:1.

Team skip Ray Woods said,

“It was a real surprise to win this competition, because it is so fiercely contested. I think it has a lot to do with the prize of afternoon tea at the Ramada! Seriously though, the way that teams are allocated means that everyone gets a chance whatever their ability. I would like to thank Jarrod Morgan and all of our sponsors who give so generously to the Club.”

Sponsor Jarrod Morgan said,

“ I always enjoy my visits to the Erdington Court Club. Everyone is so friendly and the atmosphere is so calm – even when matches are taking place. I am always delighted to help the Club out.”

The Club’s finals week end featured singles, pairs and triples indoor competitions and is the highlight of the end of the season, before play begins outdoors.
