Wanstead Central bowler comes from behind to win

Magical Mark Nullmeyers came from behind to blast his way into the quarter-finals of the Essex County Singles on Monday night, but it proved a bridge too far for Bill Nelson as he bowed out of the competition.

Nullmeyers put out his fellow Wanstead Central bowler Mitch Brenner last week to earn him a clash with Jon Stewart from Westcliff-based Essex County, but it proved to be a tough assignment against a useful opponent.

At one stage Nullmeyers trailed 13-6, but he suddenly hit top form to storm to an impressive 21-13 win.

He will now take on the excellently named Seaton Corby from the King’s Chase club in next week’s quarter-final.

There was no such joy for Ford Sports’ bowler Bill Nelson who lost to Stuart Lowe over at the Springhouse club in Corringham.

Nelson looked to be in a winning position, only to see Lowe find top gear at just the right time.

“I had played there once before a few years ago, but it was a nice fast green which suited me, so no complaints,” said Nelson.

“He was just very good on the day. I was leading 17-13 and holding three shots that were very close on the next, but he drew to the jack and got the nod on the measure to take it and never looked back from there.”

He certainly didn’t. Lowe took four shots on the next to take the lead and Nelson failed to grab another shot as the match finished 21-17.

Elsewhere in the last 16 there was something of a shock when holder Ed Morris from Essex County was thumped 21-8 by former National champion Steve Mitchinson from Romford, while also still in the draw is another ex national singles winner in Andy Falcon from Maldon.

The quarter-finals all take place next Monday at the RHP Club in Chelmsford, beginning at 6pm.

The draw is: Mark Nullmeyers (Wanstead Central) v Seaton Corby (Kings Chase), Paul Smyth (Larsons) v Steve Mitchinson (Romford), Andrew McKillop (Wivenhoe) v Stuart Lowe (Springhouse), Andrew Squire (Maldon) v Ryan Mann (Silver End).
