BIRKENSHAW bowler Chris Mordue was the latest winner of the Spen Winter Sweep last Saturday.

Mordue overcame previous winner Danny Sillitoe 21-14 in the final on a dry but bitterly cold day.

South Yorkshire bowler Sillitoe had won the first event of 2018 on January 6 and reached a second final when he beat Bradford’s Adam Mellor 21-18 in the semi-final.

He found the final a step too far as Mordue claimed the first prize having previously beaten Pudsey’s Duncan Reeves 21-16 in his semi.

Another full compliment of 40 bowlers play this Saturday (start 9.30am), including 10 county players, plus last year’s Blackpool Waterloo winner Wayne Ditchfield.
