Tidd and Adams start English ranking season with victory in Coventry

    01/26/06

    Brunswick Team England #1

    Bowling International in Coventry, England

    James Tidd.jpg James Tidd held off a strong challenge from Paul Moor en route to win the Coventry Open, the first Brunswick Team England event in the year 2006. Tidd and Moor played each other in final match of Round Robin with Tidd leading by 99.

    Paul_Moor_4064.jpg Moor (pictured right), the 2005 and 2004 European Ranking champion, started out commandingly connecting for the first three strikes before the lefty left a 7-pin in the fourth frame. Tidd, a youngster from Kings Lynn, responded with a couple of spares and a double. Moor struck another turkey but a tap in his 8th frame meant that Tidd would need to make a mistake. Tidd held up well under pressure, losing only 233-258 (plus 30 bonus) to gain his first adult title by 44 pins.

    Donna_Adams_3196.jpg Two-time defending BTE women's ranking champion Donna Adams led Jo Harries by mere 26 pins going into the finals, but her winning margin was 153 pins after the Round Robin completed. Top England junior female Hayley White (16) gained a good third place. The ladies welcomed back former international Lisa John trying out her arm after long-term injury.
