THE Junior League’s Wrathall Trophy, sponsored by Frank and Jean Wrathall, which was due to be played tomorrow, has been re-arranged for Friday August 17 at Netherton Con (9.45 scr, 10am start).
The reason is to allow anyone involved to attend the funeral of Rory Morgan at Newsome Church tomorrow (9.30). Rory was a former junior player for Newsome WMC and, although he played only a few seasons before illness stopped him playing, he created a good impression.
Always chirpy and cheerful, well liked by everyone, and a decent junior bowling prospect as well.
Meanwhile, the Dennis Bradley Memorial adult and junior pairs, due to be played at Brockholes BC on Sunday (11am) has also been cancelled due to lack of entries.
The association hope competition will be played next year under a different format.
