Elliot Crosby is the 2013 London International Champ

Written by Andy James. Posted in News

In the first match of the stepladder, two locals went up against each other. Richard Teece gave all he had but the left-handed 3 time stepladder finalist and 2005 winner Damian Gray edged out the match to win 488-459.

Gray then went on to face Stuart 'Beef Cake' Williams, the PBA title holder from the north. The first match saw the pins falling for Damian 'White Socks Wizard' Gray, with the luck seeming to be on his side, but this was not to deter Williams who felled the lefty over the two games 395 to 346.

 Junior international Elliot Crosby entered the final undefeated on Sunday by beating Williams in the winners section final and then went on to defeat Williams again in the stepladder final over two games. The young star was behind after the first game as Williams started with 209 to Crosby's 196 but improved in the second game as Williams struggled to string the strikes, whilst Crosby found a path to the pocket. Crosby went on to claim the title with a 230 to Williams' 193.

2013 Day One

Written by Andy James. Posted in News

And they're off! 15 bowlers out of the gates and onto the lanes laden with Kegel's Beaten Path pattern. Matt Miller lead the field by a country mile, shooting 801 in his first three. Coming up behind was fellow LPS team member Richard Teece. As reported already, Mark Bloor had a 300 in game three, and was lying in third place. All thoughts from the bowlers were likely on high series / high score, and some considering what to change for a re-entry. Miller started slowly in the second block, but finished with a 268 to retain the lead after six games. In the last block though, Miller lost his shot and to add insult to injury Teece put in an 802! Sneaking up from behind was Powerplay Pro Shop's Alex Hamilton, who finishing with a 266 was able to steal Millers 2nd place spot and secure his Runner Up qualification to the finals next Sunday.

2013's First 300

Written by Andy James. Posted in News

The first 300 of the 2013 London International did not take too long to materialise, as Mark Bloor put himself in the LI 300 club in game three. The 2013 of the long running London International is using the Kegel Beaten Path lane pattern, and the scores are showing it to be a bit of cruise on the open water, with local Pro Shop operator Matt Miller throwing games of 268, 275 and 258 for an 801 series in his first three games. Hold on to your hats folks, this year could be a bit of a scorefest!
