LADIES INDIVIDUAL MERIT
CHAMPION 2016 - TRACY RYAN
Tracy Ryan (Shropshire) defeated the favourite, Nicola Boulton (Mid Cheshire), 21-12 in the final of the BCG Ladies Merit, sponsored by COUNTRY GARDEN ROSES, with a stunning display on the greens of Owley Wood.
Tracy had a comfortable opener as she accounted for Margaret Shaw (Greater Manchester) 21-9. She had tough games with Merseyside’s Lynsey Gorman (21-16) and Burton & District’s Lisa Cox (21-15) before easing into the semi-finals at the expense of Wendy Allen from the host county, 21-8. Her toughest game was reserved for the semi-final where she just got the better of Debbie Talbot, 21-18.
Nicola was rarely troubled on her journey to the final winning all her games convincingly. After dispatching Wendy Jackson (Burton & District) to 9 she then accounted for Amanda Nicholas (Wales) to 11. Jane Glaister (Cumbria) fared little better scoring 8 with Alison Heys (Lancashire) being on the wrong end of a 21-3 card. Vicky Mosely (Burton & District) did best against the 2014 winner but she succumbed to a 21-12 semi-final defeat.
