BOURNEMOUTH'S Bradley Cowdroy fired off a break of 74 – his best in the Cuestars South of England Tour – en route to finishing second in Swindon.

The 14-year-old left-hander registered his top score against Greenbaize club-mate Brad Chapell in the group stages.

Cowdroy then saw off Salisbury's Anthony Rice 2-0 in the semi-final but lost to serial winner Mark Lloyd in the under-21 Gold Tour final.

Breaks of 47 and 44 were also recorded by Cowdroy, bettered only by Lloyd and Fareham's James Budd, in an impressive performance.

Chappell finished second in Group B behind Cowdroy and lost out to Lloyd in the semi-finals. Reece King completed an all-Greenbaize top three in qualifying but bowed out at the group stage.


Group A: 1st Mark Lloyd (Stoke SC, Gosport), 2nd Anthony Rice (Salisbury SC). Time constraints meant the group was closed with two matches still to play.

Dan Sykes (Chandler’s Ford SC), Mike Trigg (Chandler’s Ford SC), James Budd (Fareham SC), Arron Smith (Selsey RBL) were not placed.

Group B: 1st Bradley Cowdroy (Greenbaize, Bournemouth), 2nd Brad Chappell (Greenbaize, Bournemouth), 3rd Reece King (Greenbaize, Bournemouth), 4th Mickey Joyce (Chandler’s Ford SC), 5th Callum Browne (Westbury).

Semi-finals: Lloyd 2 Chappell 0, Cowdroy 2 Rice 0.
