Earlier Jewitt had defeated Eleanor Broadley 21-16, Kara Butterfield 21-20 after being 20-17 down, Patrick Higgins 21-19 and youngster Jack Griffin 21-14 in the semi-final.

Bowes had seen off the challenge of Ben Stockdale 21-08, Ross Kemp 21-10, Shane Wainwright 21-20 and favourite Mark Armitage 21-15 in the semi final.

The trophy was in memory of Keith Mortimer - a long-standing bowler at the Flying Horse and a big supporter of junior bowling.
